Wintry walks

Great Missenden is a lovely place to visit over the holidays, and there's more than just the Museum to explore. Pick up one of our walks leaflets and set out on foot to discover some of the local Roald Dahl sights. Bring your wellies and ramble up to the woods that inspired Fantastic Mr Fox on our Countryside Trail, or stick to the pavement and follow the Village Trail to discover sights like Matilda's library.
