Explore the beauty & mosaic of colours in the Surrey Hills

Surrey

{The Surrey Hills}

This area of outstanding natural beauty stretches across the North Downs. It's a special area of flower rich grasslands, chalk downland, heaths and woodlands that offer breathtaking views across hills that embrace an amazing variety of countryside.

From the splendour of the Devil's Punch Bowl and Hindhead Common in the west, through to the chalk downland at Box Hill beside the River Mole, and on to Oxted in the east, it is an area understandably recognised as one of the most picturesque in England.

Hindhead is seen as the gateway to the Surrey Hills, a colourful mosaic of purples, greens and gold. Head east and reach Leith Hill and Leith Hill Tower, the highest point in south east England at 294 metres or 965 feet. Climb the 74 steps to the top of the gothic tower and take in the panoramic views in all directions.

Drop down through the wooded hillside to picturesque Surrey villages such as Abinger Hammer with its famous clock that overhangs the road, Gomshall, Shere and Holmbury St Mary.

At the foot of Box Hill there are the pretty stepping stones that cross the River Mole and then a brisk climb to the top of Box Hill, one of the best known landmarks in southern England and a firm challenge for any keen cyclist, amateur or professional!

Visit some great classic houses, such as Polesden Lacey and Hatchlands, or enjoy a visit to Denbies Estate in the Mole Valley Gap , one of the largest wine producers in the UK.
