Notice: Our bluebells in Franks Wood are now beautiful and there’s still a lovely display in Church Wood, on the purple trail (Etherley farm loop). There’re also lots of early bloomers in the Rhododendron Wood – both azaleas and rhododendrons.

Woodland, heathland, farmland and parkland set in the Surrey Hills

Leith Hill is the highest point in Southeast England and is set within the beautiful Surrey Hills. Its gothic tower rises majestically above the surrounding hills and from the top you can see sweeping views towards London in the north and the English Channel in the south.

Leith Hill has been popular with visitors since the Victorian times and you can enjoy similar pastimes today but with a modern twist; visit our tower and peer through the telescope or follow our self-guided trails through ancient woods, the scented Rhododendron Wood and across open heathland. 

There’s plenty of space for family adventures and many lovely spots for picnics too. Delicious light snacks are available from our Tower’s servery.

Leith Hill is within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and is home to an abundant wildlife. It’s also designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).
