Miltons Cottage in Chalfont St Giles is the only surviving building in which  the famous writer is known to have lived. To prevent it being demolished and  rebuilt in the USA in 1887, it was bought for the British by public  subscription, including 20 donated by Queen Victoria. Milton came to Chalfont  St Giles to escape the Great Plague of London in 1665. It was in this  picturesque cottage that he completed Paradise Lost and the sequel Paradise  Regained. Now open to the public, the Grade I Listed Building contains many  relics and exhibits of interest. The cottage has an attractive garden with a  free car park nearby.

Open: March - October, Tuesday - Sunday, 10.00am - 1.00pm & 2.00pm  - 6.00pm and Bank Holidays.
Admission: Adult 2.50, Child 1 (under 15  years).
