Amersham 3 / 270

Opened in September 1892, Amersham station is the northern terminus of the Metropolitan line. It is situated 23.7 miles north-west of Charing Cross, making it the farthest underground station from central London. In March 1922 its name was changed to Amersham & Chesham Bois, but the original name was restored in 1937.

Amersham is a market town in Buckinghamshire, dating back to pre-Anglo Saxon times, when it was known as Egmondesham. There is evidence that a Roman Villa existed in the area. The town is twinned with Bensheim in Germany and Krynica-Zdrój in Poland.

Amersham has been used as a location in several films and television shows including Four Weddings and a Funeral, Midsomer Murders and Chucklevision.

Amersham is one of the most beautiful towns in Buckinghamshire, lots of commuters between High Wycombe, Hemel Hempstead and Slough pass through everyday. Worth a visit because it has unspoilt views, lovely places to eat and shop, and full of history.

Amersham has an astonishingly unspoilt High Street packed with old buildings and ancient Market Hall. The train runs through glorious countryside to get to it and there is a walk from the station through woods and down a hill to the town with views that make it hard to realise that you have just stepped off the Underground. Well worth a day’s outing from central London.
