This circular hike is beautifully crafted, you’d never know it’s so close to London. The walk up to Ivinghoe Beacon provides outstanding views to the south. There is plenty of wildlife to keep an eye out for before you reach the Beacon itself. The hike crosses into the Ashridge Estate, now owned by the National Trust. Taking you through untouched woodland, complete with bluebells in spring, up to the impressive Bridgewater Monument and then onto a welcome coffee shop stop. You’ve then cracked the back of the hike as the lovely village of Aldbury lies below you. A quick traverse down the escarpment and you will arrive at The Greyhound, a lovely village pub with accommodation. Tring Station is a short walk away.
