The village itself is a great place to explore or enjoy a gentle stroll, just make sure you call into The King’s Arms for a refreshing drink or a delicious bite to eat once you’ve built up a healthy appetite.

For an insight into the history of the area, head to Houghton House  - the shell of a 17th century mansion that offers magnificent views over the area. The structure was said to have inspired the House Beautiful in John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress.

With a host of gardens to discover, as well as a sculpture gallery, archaeological collections, and a children’s play area, there’s something for the whole family.

During the summer months, Hitchen Lavender Farm is simply stunning. Walk through the 25 miles of lavender rows, pick your own fresh lavender, and take in the spectacular views of rural Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire. After all that exploring, call into The Flying Horse to refuel with a delicious, freshly prepared meal.

Other attractions in the area include De Grey Mausoleum, Wrest Park, Bushmead Priory, Woburn Safari Park, The Forest of Marston Vale, Priory Country Park, and Woburn Abbey and Gardens.
