Hi, we are a semi-retired couple with a daughter about to go to university, interested in cultural exchange (Italian speakers especially welcome) and glad to provide help and suggestions for seeing nearby London the centre of which is just 20 minutes away by train, or the local Roman ruins and museums. A short distance away are the Icknield Way and Dunstable downs which are ideal for walking and also the Chiltern Hills an area of natural beauty and flora/fauna. Cycling is very popular in the area with many cycle paths and quiet lanes and in the main town centre, just over a mile away, there are many different styles of restaurants and bars ranging from wine bars to traditional pubs.
Help in the house
We live in a historic town just 20 minutes from central London where there is a fantastic mix of cultural experiences. We enjoy meeting people from all over the world and having learned Italian to intermediate level are happy to help visitors improve their english if it is not their native tongue. A visit from Italian speakers would be especially welcome, and might be of particular interest from a historic point of view due to there being some of the best preserved Roman ruins in the Uk on the edge of the town. From Battles in the Wars of the Roses to modern day there is plenty of history on visible display and many small, picturesque villages within easy reach for sightseeing and numbers gyms locally for those who want to keep fit!
