Hotels in Chesham
Chesham's position in the middle of an Outstanding Area of Natural Beauty makes the village feel smart and neat. It's traditionally known for four things: boots, beer, brushes and Baptists. This refers to Chesham's long-standing manufacturing industries and numerous local churches.
Things to do in Chesham
At Chesham Moor Gym & Swim, you can have a go at more than just the treadmill and treading water. The leisure centre has tennis courts, Thai boxing, yoga and Aqua Zumba.
On a walk around town, you may recognise some of the sights and buildings. Chesham has been used several times for filming TV drama Midsomer Murders.

Travelling to central London takes roughly an hour.
