Bucks HP5 1NE
Being reasonably local to a lot of Motorways, there are a vast array of different routes to get to Chesham, the majority of travelling fans will come from the M25 as that is the nearest Motorway, but being one of the UK’s busiest roads, sometimes it is best avoided, usually when travelling midweek near rush hour. Here are a selection of ways to get to us dependent on where you are coming from:
Chesham United from M25; Coming from the South (or from M4/M40)
Take J18 off the M25 taking the left lane of the slip road to turn left on to the A404 to Chorleywood/Amersham. You will follow this road through Chorleywood straight through 2 sets of lights. You will then pass a school on your left handside, about 1 mile down the road from there you will see the road bear to the left with a right turn to Chenies and Latimer, take this turn and follow the road in to Chenies, this road will lead you to Chesham, you will see a manor house to your right as you follow the road for about 3 miles. You will eventually find yourself on a one way system at a ‘left turn only’ junction, you will shortly pass an open air pool to your left, follow the road under the bridge, Chesham United is the 2nd exit off the roundabout. This route is not suitable for Coaches!
Coach route – Follow the A404 going past the Chalfont & Latimer Undergound Station, going straight over the mini roundabout, you will now be on The White Lion Road, follow this road until you see a roundabout, take the right exit under the bridge. Follow the road straight across the next two mini roundabouts and bear right at the next mini roundabout, you will see the Boot & Slipper on the corner of the roundabout. Follow straight over the next roundabout following the road to the roundabout at the bottom off the hill, the entrance is directly next to this exit, it is a tight exit, a coach would need to do a full circle on the roundabout to get in.
Coming from the North (or M1)
Take J20 off the M25 to the A41 Aylesbury/Hemel follow this road for about 7 miles, your turn off is after the Service Station; the turn off is for Berkhamsted/Chesham, take the right hand lane in the slip road to the A416 to Chesham.
