The Kings Arms in Amersham counts Oliver Cromwell among its former guests, and has featured in TV programmes and films including "Midsomer Murders", "Miss Marple" and "Four Weddings and a Funeral". The Tudor inn dates from the 1400s and retains its historic character; the building has exposed beams, low ceilings and higgledy-piggledy corridors, and the cosy snug bar has wooden beams, an inglenook fireplace and comfy leather chairs. 

The hotel is right in the centre of old Amersham, making it an ideal place from which to explore the town's antique shops and antiquarian book stores. Amersham museum is a short stroll from the hotel and The Roald Dahl Museum and Story centre is less than 10 minutes' drive away.

There are short walks from Old Amersham into the Chiltern countryside, or you can cycle the Chiltern Heritage Trail. Amersham museum is a short stroll from the hotel and The Roald Dahl Museum and Story centre is less than 10 minutes' drive away.

Chenies Manor is approximately 15 minutes' drive away. This charming Tudor manor house was visited by Henry VIII and Elizabeth I, and has award-winning gardens.

The restaurant is situated in the historic part of the inn and serves hearty pub food, seasonal menus and locally sourced ingredients.

Executive Doubles are in the modern extension, a couple of minutes' walk from the main building.
