How you can help us to look after our countryside sites during the pandemic

We are experiencing very high visitor numbers to our countryside sites. Please help us to look after these sites for everyone.

Covid 19 has meant a chance to spend some much needed time in the countryside and we welcome everyone to enjoy the Surrey Hills; whether to walk, run, ride or simply admire the views.

Car Parking

Most of our car parks are full by 10am on weekends - non-National Trust members are asked to pay for parking at all of them, whilst National Trust members can park for free. You can pay for car parking by downloading the PayByPhone App onto your smartphone. If you want to find out about the benefits of National Trust membership, please take a look on our website here, where you can join easily online.

Please only park in designated car parks. Please do not park on roadside verges, over yellow lines, or over driveways. Blocking roads can cause accidents and we need to have constant access to our sites - thank you.


Our cafes at Box Hill, Hindhead Commons and Frensham Little Pond are open for takeaway only - all of our packaging is recycleable and compostable. During very busy times, we may need to close them to ensure that social distancing takes place. Our public toilets are open.

Countryside Code

Please help us by taking your litter home with you; BBQs are not permitted at any of our sites. Please close gates behind you - some of our places are home to livestock, which whilst friendly, may want to wander.

Free Downloadable Walks

Browse our websites for a selection of free downloadable walks at our places - these range from gentle family-friendly strolls, to longer and demanding hikes.
