Amid the boutiques and antique shops of Old Amersham village, the newly converted Kings Chapel marries modern amenities with a 300-year-old building. Located within the grounds of the 15th-century Kings Arms Hotel, it can host ceremonies, breakfasts and evening receptions under one roof. An unusual, round Main Hall retains its original pulpit, mezzanine gallery and – the crowning glory – a domed cupola. Flanking the primary space, there are handsome rooms for more intimate receptions, as well as a kitchen, bar and private gardens. The venue’s only 45 minutes from London but, for overnighters, the main hotel has 34 bedrooms, while the nearby Crown Inn – part of the same group – offers another 38.
