This new title from Bradt forms part of its distinctive ‘Slow Travel’ series and is the only title available to cover the Chilterns and Thames Valley in depth. Divided into six easily manageable sections, Bradt’s The Chilterns and Thames Valley lifts the lid on what makes this area so distinctive. Chalk grasslands, beech woods, streams and wooded valleys provide a perfect landscape for walking. The Thames Valley follows the route of one of the world’s most famous rivers. You can find key sites of monarchical and parliamentary power such as Windsor Castle and Chequers, the location of Magna Carta’s sealing at Runnymede and the birthplaces of men and women who have led dissent down the ages. A host of well-loved authors has lived and written here, depicting Paradise, defining our childhoods and painting timeless images of England and its people.
