Climb to the top of the tower
Climb the spiral stairs to the top of the tower (not for the faint-hearted) and spot the famous landmarks. It’s amazing how far you can see on a clear day. Built in 1765 by Richard Hull, a man who wanted to see and be seen, the tower is the highest point in south east England. Richard loved the tower so much he was buried under it.
The view from the tower
Standing at the top of Leith Hill Tower, you'll be at the highest point in south east England. There's a free telescope at the top to enjoy the view where you'll be higher than the Shard, London Eye and 30 St Mary Axe, widely known as the Gherkin. On a clear day you can see the English Channel.
Leith Hill Tower exhibition room
Climb half way up the tower to visit our newly-refurbished exhibition room, with fascinating tales of the tower and the man who built it, there's even a dressing-up opportunity for the children.
Take the dog for a walk
Happy hounds love to bound through the woods and enjoy nothing better than exploring. Treat your best friend to a walk at Leith Hill. There's always fresh water for your dog at the tower servery - the highest point in south east England.
Th bird hide in the Rhododendron Wood is a great spot to sit peacefully and watch the comings and goings of native and migratory birds. Let us know what you've seen on Facebook.
