The start of the Ridgeway National Trail which begins here and finishes near Avebury in Wiltshire. Try to visit here on a clear day when I'd imagine the views are great - unfortunately when we started our walk it was foggy! You do have to walk to the top of the beacon and then back track to get back onto... More

We walked through the forest woodlands before taking on the steep climb and enjoyed every moment. Uninterrupted views of much local and distant scenery. Take a picnic and enjoy a great family day out.

I love the views from this beacon, looking out over the Vale. there is a little bit of a climb, but it worth the effort. Being the end (or beginning) of The Ridgeway there is a well worn track to the top. The car park is a fair size and you'll often find an ice cream van in the summer.... More

Its quite simply a local landmark & attraction. There are a couple of car parks, that we found, in the area and both were FREE!! (We like this). The views were quite stunning. Local land marks stood out. Pitstone Windmill looked just like a model from the top. A number of walks & trails cross over the area. Some avoid... More

Not far from Tring or Dunstable Ivinghoe Beacon is a great place to go if you want a walk with spectacular views. I had a walk for an hour and was quite tired by the end of it but it was worth it. In the distance you can see the Lion carved into the hillside by Whipsnade Zoo. Make sure... More

A fabulous location. Staying at Town Farm campsite. Can see the hills from my tent. Took my children for a walk up to the top before breakfast. Only took us 45 minutes. Pitstone village nearby is lovely and only 20 minutes walk. Would recommend the area highly.
