Down in the Misbourne valley sits Amersham Old Town, a picturesque market town with a long history, and the 700 years old buildings to prove it.

Climb a short distance and you reach Amersham-on-the-Hill, a busy spot with shops that developed with the arrival of the railway.

Many residents live in the tree-lined streets between the Old Town and Amersham-on-the-Hill, having the best of both worlds in a town surrounded by Chilterns greenery.

In 2020 Amersham once again appeared in the Sunday Times Best Places to Live Guide and you can understand why. Living in Amersham gives you a choice of jumping on the train or tube to get into London, the schools are excellent, and it's surrounded by the best countryside the Chilterns can offer.
