  • Ashridge park and woods; excellent for walking, cycling, horse-riding and kite flying
  • Pitstone Hill and Windmill; one of England's oldest surviving post-mills (an early form of windmill) which dates from 1627 and is open to the public on summer Sunday afternoons.
  • a visitor centre, shop and café
