Roald Dahl Trail



Various Locations, Buckinghamshire, HP16 0AL
The BFG drawn by Quentin Blake


Rootle out the magic of Buckinghamshire's Roald Dahl country, which the Master Storyteller wove into Matilda, Danny Champion of the World, Fantastic Mr Fox and other fantabulous tales. The Roald Dahl Trail reveals the secret of where to go and what to see for an absolutely squiffing family day out.

Start at Great Missenden, Roald Dahl's home town. This is where Dahl lived for thirty years and wrote the much-loved books which, in his lifetime, made him the most popular children's author in the world. Go on to discover just the sort of intriguing, exciting, phizz-whizzing places that Dahl himself would have known or loved.

No splatch winkling: get set for a journey that will take you under the hills, into the woods, through the farmyard and into other secret or unlikely places.
