Princes Risborough to Great Missenden


  • Start: Princes Risborough station (station code PRR, postcode HP27 9DN)
  • Finish: Great Missenden station (station code GMN, postcode HP16 9AZ)
  • Distance: 14.00km
  • Total ascent: 318m
  • Naismith time: 3h 20m
  • London terminus: Marylebone
  • Ticketing: Day return to Aylesbury
  • Intermediate transport: none
  • Facilities: All facilities in Princes Risborough and Great Missenden


This route takes the walker through the heart of the Chiltern woodlands. The logistics show that it is a day without intermediate facilities, so you will need to carry supplies, but in return, you have a day to savour the countryside throughout the walk, and Great Missenden has plenty of scope for post-walk refreshments. Those walking the route in the other direction should note that there is a pub very close to your arrival at Station Road at the end of the walk, but for any other commerce in Princes Risborough, you will need to turn right on New Road, then complete the walk along the full length of Station Road.

The start and finish of the walk lie on different routes out of Marylebone, so a day return to Aylesbury (reachable via Amersham and Great Missenden, and also via High Wycombe and Princes Risborough) is your best ticketing choice.
