Enjoy a 4-mile walk through some of Box Hill's finest scenery and views.

Glorious in every season but stout boots recommended; some fairly steep gradients and a stile are also along the route.

Sit for a while on the seat near the top and take in the spectacular views. Continue down the hill where you'll find a seat to your left.
