New nets kingdom at Go Ape, Black Park

The new Nets Kingdom is a vast connected structure of bounce nets, slides, climbing towers and hand-built tree houses designed for kids. Completely encased in 3,000 square metres of hammock-like netting, set 9 metres up in the forest canopy, it's the country's biggest nets adventure that will guarantee to take kids and adults alike to new heights!                  

This new adventure is now open to all to enjoy and is based at Go Ape Black Park, adjacent to Pinewood Film Studios, home of James Bond and the Star Wars sequels.

Their leafy hangout, built in 2010, is set in 530 acres of stunning woodland with a beautiful lake at its heart. With Uxbridge just down the road, Go Ape's adventures are in good company for those wishing to explore the area and spend the whole day out.

If you are looking to keep your monekys occupied, this is a 'must do' adventure!

Chiltern Yurt Retreat

Hidden in a private wildlife garden, the handmade Kingfisher Yurt plays host not only to local kingfishers but also ducks, moorhens, dragonflies and the odd heron. Well, the area does, the yurt is just for you. With all this wildlife and the bamboo and woodland surrounding you, the yurt feels completely secluded, but if you follow the stream for just a few minutes you’ll reach the village of Wendover, with more than enough coffee shops and pubs to keep you fed and watered throughout your stay. Of course, if you’d rather stay put, your camp comes with a private cabin housing a modern kitchen (and bathroom), so you can cook up a little something and eat out on the deck. When it starts to feel chilly, head inside and watch the flames through the glass door of the wood burner. Vibrant antique rugs and a kingsize bed covered in colourful bed linen will keep you cosy while you’ll still be able to see the sky through the central roof wheel.

Wingbury Glamping

Gemma and Will are the proud owners of Wingbury Farm Glamping, working closely with Will’s mum and dad, Jennie and James. ​

They have a young family and have experienced, for themselves, the transition from carefree backpacking and camping on small sites with few facilities to the reality of camping with a family. With Wingbury Farm Glamping, Will and Gemma want to offer a relaxing camping option to all their customers, with a touch of luxury thrown in. Wingbury farm itself has been in the family for three generations, its use evolving over the years, from a 220 acre mixed arable and stock farm, to a 50-acre site now used as permanent pasture for sheep and cattle.

They felt that the scenery in the area was too good to miss at any time of year, so have decided to open Wingbury Farm Glamping all year round.

Amersham Museum restored to glory

After four years of planning and fundraising and a 10-month closure, Amersham Museum will re-open to visitors at noon on Wednesday 12th July.

The extension has created new exhibition space, activity space and dedicated stores for the museum’s collection. The collection has been completely redisplayed with more emphasis on the 20th century and much greater access to parts of it, including maps and oral histories. There are also more activities for children and discovery boxes full of objects, photos and documents. 

New Activities:  A wonderful activity programme has been developed for the reimagined museum, with activities for people of all ages, including a new schools programme from September. The activities kick off with a series of family activiti [Amersham Museum launch] ​es on Saturday 15th July (free after admission).
