London to Shambala
In 2023 (the best yet, obviously), over 70 Shambalans took on the 100 mile journey from London. Leaving via the Grand Union Canal, we enjoyed a delicious picnic lunch in Denham Village and made our way through the quiet country lanes of the Chiltern Hills to our idyllic campsite at the foot of Ivinghoe Beacon. We set up camp and wandered down to the cosy Rose and Crown pub in Ivinghoe where Resident chef Mick hosted our weary group for dinner with a delicious vegetarian and vegan-friendly set menu. The next morning, after a casual campsite breakfast, we continued around the pretty lakes and parks of Milton Keynes and through rural Northamptonshire. We stopped for an unplanned celebratory group drink at the Tollemache Arms in Harrington (the pub agreed to open early just for us!) before peddling the last few miles to Shambala. If you want to make friends for life (that's what you're telling us!), make a new group of festival buddies before you even arrive at Shambala and 'go eco' join us for our FIFTH year in the saddle!
