Great Missenden station serves the picturesque villages of Great Missenden and Prestwood, Little Hampden and Little Missenden, in the Buckinghamshire countryside. The pretty, cared-after station, built in 1892, lies on the London Marylebone to Aylesbury Line between Amersham and Wendover.
Today, regular passenger services run to London from the canopied platform 1 in the morning, and in the opposite direction towards Aylesbury in the evening, from platform 2. The station sees more than its fair share of VIP travellers, being the closet station to the prime minister's weekend residence, Chequers.
Great Missenden is also well known in the literary world, with both Roald Dahl and Robert Louis Stephenson once calling the town home. The connection to Dahl lives on to this day, through the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre, which is a five-minute walk from the train station. The road leading to the museum is Great Missenden’s High Street, home to a varied selection of bars and gastropubs.
