Ivinghoe Beacon is a prominent hill and landmark in Buckinghamshire, England, in the United Kingdom, standing 233 m (757 ft) above sea level. It is situated in the Chiltern Hills, close to the village of Ivinghoe and Aldbury. The towns of Dunstable in Bedfordshire and Berkhamsted and Tring in Hertfordshire are also nearby.

The Beacon lies within the Ashridge Estate and is managed and owned by the National Trust. It is the starting point of the Icknield Way to the east, and the Ridgeway long-distance path to the west.

Ivinghoe Beacon is a popular spot for walkers and sightseers. Model aircraft enthusiasts also use lift generated by the wind blowing up the hill to fly their unpowered aircraft – a technique known as slope soaring.

  • Excuse my phone screen, but this is the best place to watch the sunset. Parking can be as near or far as you need it to be, but panoramic views across the counties are second to none. I've also camped up here, and you can see millions of stars ☺️
  • Can't beat the panoramic views you get up here. Would recommend to almost anyone.
