Thank you for respecting our local communities

We're following government guidance and lifting social distancing rules and other COVID restrictions at all our Surrey Hills properties. Please be mindful of each other when visiting our properties. 

We know how important it is for everyone to seek fresh air, space and nature and we are experiencing very high visitor numbers to our countryside sites. You don't need to book, but most car parks are full by mid-morning especially at the weekends. 

We may ask visitors to return at a quieter time if the car park is full and ask all visitors to respect this.

Please respect our local communities by not parking on roadsides or verges.

We appreciate your support in taking your litter home and keeping dogs under close control around livestock and to protect ground nesting birds.

Car Parking

Most of our car parks are full by 10am on weekends and on public holidays - 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 cafés at Box Hill, Hindhead Commons and Frensham Little Pond are open. Opening times can be found on the website. 

The safety of our visitors and staff remains our top priority. In our cafés, alongside maintaining our high standards of cleanliness, plexiglass screens will stay in place and hand sanitiser stations will remain. 

While we recognise wearing face coverings is voluntary, we are recommending, visitors staff and volunteers wear them in enclosed and crowded spaces. 

Our public toilets are open (please check the opening times on the website).

Countryside Code

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