Our work

Welcoming our visitors

Welcoming visitors to Box Hill, Surrey

We have an amazing team of staff and volunteers who look after our shepherd's hut in the car park at Box Hill. Here you can hire tracker packs and kites, pick up a walks leaflet or join the National Trust. There's always a dog biscuit or two and fresh water for hungry hounds as well as ideas for things to look out for along your walk. Don't forgot to pick up your 50 things guide and collect your sticker too for each challenge you've completed.

No two days are the same for Box Hill Ranger David Benjamins. Looking after such a varied site keeps him very busy. Luckily he's supported by an amazing team of volunteers who help him carry out crucial conservation work on our rare habitats. David also needs to keep Box Hill safe and accessible for nearly a million visitors each year. Making sure storm damaged trees are cleared away and that car parks are welcoming to our visitors are only some of the many things David gets up to.

Brunches, lunches and afternoon teas are the bread and butter of Suzanne Taylor, Box Hill's Catering and Retail Manager's day. Serving on average 150 cups of tea every day, it's hard work keeping our thousands of customers well fed and watered.
