Lovely walk through the nature and climbing up the stairs are good fun. Lots of things for the children to do and learn. We always visit the place and keep coming back. The best place to witness the change in nature.

A landmark, with a beautiful view. Tea and delicious cakes served from a window at the base of the tower. A small fee to climb the tower.

This is an historic tower with marvellous views across (on a clear day) the North & South Downs, most walking routes are all uphill to get there but worth it, however it is disappointing with the extortionent prices they charge for refreshments

Leith Hill, Tower and surrounding countryside are owned by the National Trust. It’s in the same Surrey Hills area as Box Hill but some five miles further south, making it a much less “cuddly” neighbour. Whereas Box Hill is very accessible by Road, you have...More
