Box Hill - so much to explore

Box Hill is the perfect place to discover a family walk and explore the beautiful Surrey Hills. Forming part of the North Downs, Box Hill has breathtaking views across the surrounding countryside. It's home to some fantastic wildlife and plants too, including the Adonis blue butterfly and bee orchid.

This month, why don't you try out some of our fantastic walks leaflets? There are lots of walks over the hill, which you can download here, or collect on site. Whatever the weather and however much time you have, there'll be something for everyone.
