Midsomer on the Misbourne

Another new Midsomer Trail has been launched and fans can now follow in the footsteps of DCI Barnaby through the Chilterns, with a self-guided tour travelling along the Misbourne Valley.

This new trail is unique in that is spans across five areas, and uncovers some of the best spots in the Chilterns. The River Misbourne passes through rural landscapes, historic market towns and villages packed with pretty cottages, stone churches, traditional pubs and fictional murder!

Visit Great Missenden, the home of the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre. Be sure to visit the ‘flushbunkingly gloriumptious’ café which appeared as Shires Bank in ‘Painted in Blood’.  Continue your journey to the lovely village of Little Missenden which has featured in over 13 episodes of the show. The next stop is Amersham, arguably one of the prettiest market towns in England. Combine your visit with a trip to the delightful Amersham Museum and a pit stop in one of the many award-winning eateries in the town. Chalfont St. Giles is a small village of pretty cottages, pubs, manor houses and a church, village green and a duck pond – quintessential Midsomer County! The last village on the trail is Chalfont St. Peter which is nestled on the southern slopes of the Chiltern Hills. There is plenty to see in the village which includes a walking trail and further afield Chiltern Open Air Museum, itself a filming location for multiple Midsomer episodes, Call the Midwife, Horrible Histories and Downtown Abbey to name a few.

To see it all, stay a few days in a real piece of English History.
