This pub situated at the heart of attractive Amersham High Street is a good example of a coaching inn, and the oldest part dates back to the 1400s. It was first recorded as a public house in 1715, however long before, during the civil war, it is believed that Oliver Cromwell often used a room upstairs for meetings with his officers. It's not surprising that the building has been used in TV and film productions, such as Four Weddings and a Funeral, Midsomer Murders and Miss Marple. Though steeped in history, The Kings Arms has modern comforts and its rooms are comfortable and quite spacious. Good walks, shops, and restaurants are on your doorstep, and both Heathrow and London are easily accessible.



There are several restaurants on the doorstep - both chain ones and independents.

Located on the high street in the market town of Amersham, explore the Chiltern Hills or visit Cliveden House (20 minutes).
By car: under an hour from Oxford, 1 hour 15 minutes from London and 2 hours from Bristol and Birmingham. Free parking on-site.
By train: London Marylebone to Amersham takes 35 minutes. Amersham is also served by the Metropolitan line of the tube. The hotel is a 5-minute drive (or 20-minute walk) from the station.
