Nearby attractions

If you’re going to travel from afar then there’s plenty more to see nearby…

The local village pubs

If Ley Hill is known for anything it’s the two pubs on the common, The Swan and The Crown.  Both pubs have a reputation for fine real ale and great food.  There’s plenty of space to sit outside and watch the cricket on the common opposite, and on August Bank holiday weekend the pubs jointly host a huge music and beer festival.

Chenies Manor & Latimer House

Within 2 miles of Ley Hill are two magnificent manor houses that have played important roles in English history.  

Chenies Manor is a medieval house dating from the 11th century and has been home to Dukes and Earls and has been visited by numerous Kings and Queens.  The house is open to the public from April to October.  

Latimer House is famous for being the secret interrogation base for the allies during world war II.  The house was visited by senior German generals including the notorious Rudolf Hess, deputy to Adolf Hitler.  Latimer House is not open to the public but it is a hotel and you can easily book a room!
