Visitors enjoy the soundscape audio tour at Leith Hill Place

Climb to the second floor to join our Soundscape tour - a shared experience about the life and music of Vaughan Williams.  Part audio guide, part art installation, the tour gives an insight into the story of the composer and his music, placing it firmly in the context of this house and revealing something of the character of the man.  Don't miss this unique experience. 

Soundscape tour

Tour lasts approx 40 mins and is by free timed ticket available from the front desk.

Accessible version available for those unable to manage the stairs.


car parking at Leith Hill Place

Parking for the house is in the Rhododendron Wood car park RH5 6LU. From the car park, enjoy a leisurely walk down through the woods and over the field, 400m to the house. In wet weather, the route can get muddy.

Alternative car parks are at Windy Gap or Starveall Corner (not NT) or you can use the new Sunday Rambler bus service operated by Buses 4 U from Dorking Station. See http://www.buses4u.org.uk/ for details of this new service.

Rhododendron Wood

The Rhododendron Wood was created in the late 1800s by Caroline Wedgwood of the illustrious pottery family by planting up two fields with rhododendrons and azaleas, many of which were specimens brought back from Asia. Why not stroll around on your way to visit Leith Hill Place?
