Weekend inspiration

Build a den in the woods

Build a den in the woods

Leith Hill is surrounded by beautiful woodland and open countryside that is perfect for exploring.  With peaceful pathways and wonderful views, it's perfect for a whole day's adventure or just an hour or two.

Leith Hill tower

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.

Autumn views

Get Outside

Leith Hill lies on one of the highest points in the south east of England. There are wonderful views over the Kent and Sussex Weald to the South Downs and northwards to London. On a clear day you can see into Hampshire too.

Leith Hill Tower exhibition room

Exhibition panel at Leith Hill Tower

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.

Bird hide

Look out for redwing - the UK’s smallest thrush - with its orangey flank

Last winter we built a bird hide for the Rhododendron wood. It's 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.
