  • Nice place for a windy day. I personally Cycled here just for the view. It is said that you can see 5 counties from here on a clear day and if you are a photographer you will appreciate it. Bit of a ride if you cycle as there is a steep hill but worth it. If you're lucky may see some gliders! Nice place for families and flying kites and there is a place with food and coffee as well as a few small shops.
  • Dunstable Downs is a large area of grassland at the top of the scarp slope of the Chiltern Hills. It is National Trust land and there is an excellent modern cafe and toilets. Its a perfect place for flying kates and watching gliders take off from the airstrip at the bottom of the hill.
  • Nice place for a walk, we stopped off after at the NT visitor center which served and excellent hit chocolate.
  • Beautiful rolling downs with a reasonably stocked N.T shop and cafe with a Vista and on a good day you can watch the gliders take off and land .
  • Lovely peacefull area. Well kept greens lack of rubbish. Lovely views. Just sit back in the breeze and watch the gracefull gliders dancing above you. Even the teas and coffee's are a good price £2.50 Latte £1.90 Tea.
