Box Hill Bluebell Walk

Walking trail

British Native Bluebells - Hyacinthoides non-scripta, are a sign of ancient woodland. During April and May they carpet woodland floors at Box Hill, offering up the most delicious scent and magical colour.

Map

The Box Hill bluebell walk route

Start:

Box Hill shepherd's hut, KT20 7LB

1

Start your walk at the Box Hill visitor centre, café or shepherd's hut. Take the path to Salomons memorial viewpoint.

2

From the viewpoint follow the path alongside the road to your left until you reach the Smith & Western restaurant.

3

Cross the road into the woods, following the Bridle Way signpost and the path beside the fence - walk straight on.

4

Soon you'll see a narrow path that forks to the right. Keep walking along this path to admire the stunning display of bluebells all around you and perhaps sit awhile on the bench. Please stay on the paths here and don't walk through the bluebells - they are very fragile plants.

Continue along this route until the path ends at a fenceline. Make your way carefully along this short stretch of fence to the left until you reach a gate that opens out onto the summit of Juniper Top. Don’t go through this gate – unless you want to see the spectacular views – but turn to your left and follow the purple Juniper Top route back to the café, with more bluebells on the way.
