Visit Olney



Sports & Activities - Introduction

Olney is on the River Great Ouse as well as being just moments from Emberton Park, so we have great walking, cycling and fishing.

There's easy access to the Three Shires Way, a bridleway running through the quiet rural landscape of Bucks, Beds and Northants. And Salcey Forest gives you an escape along lovely forest walkways.






For thrill seekers, the giant Xscape complex (the winner of a recent VisitBritain award) offers real snow for indoor skiing and tobogganing, simulated skydiving and rock-climbing plus bowling.  

There is windsurfing, horse ridingswimming within a short drive if you base yourself in Olney.

Some of the best golf courses in the country are in the Buckinghamshire, Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire triangle.
