Please respect our local communities and only exercise in the Surrey Hills if you live locally.

We are experiencing very high visitor numbers to our countryside sites. Most car parks are full by mid-morning. Please stay in your local area, observe social distancing and be mindful of our neighbours.

We’re keeping the places we care for open for exercise in the Surrey Hills, as we know how important it is for local people to seek fresh air, space and nature. 

We are experiencing very high visitor numbers to our countryside sites. Most car parks are full by mid-morning at weekends. Please stay in your local area, observe social distancing and be mindful of our neighbours by not parking on roadsides or driveways.

We appreciate your support in taking your litter home and keeping dogs under close control around livestock.

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.

Cafes

Our cafes at Box Hill, Hindhead Commons and Frensham Little Pond are open for a very limited takeaway option only. 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.
