Dunstable Downs, Chilterns Gateway Centre and Whipsnade Estate

Dunstable Downs, Chilterns Gateway Centre and Whipsnade Estate
Extensive chalk and grassland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
Soar above a breathtaking landscape, sculpted over time, decorated by nature and enjoyed by generations.
 
Stand on top of Dunstable Downs for a view that will simply take your breath away. These Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) are designated for the quality of their chalk grasslands.
 
As well as two Scheduled Ancient Monuments (Five Knolls and Medieval Rabbit Warrens) there are many other historical features and the site has much to offer you.
 
The chalk grasslands of the Downs have miles of footpaths and several circular walks, a fascinating history and an abundance of plants and wildlife.
 
Dunstable Downs is within the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and the highest point in Bedfordshire.
 
The wind-swept ridge provides ideal conditions for a variety of air sports, especially kite flying. On calmer days it's the ideal site to enjoy the view and a picnic.
 
Please note: Chilterns Gateway Centre is owned by Central Bedfordshire Council and managed by the National Trust.
