Christmas on the Surrey Hills

The Surrey Hills offer wide open spaces to run wild and free, quiet paths to test out new tricycles and some magnificent long-distance walking trails to seriously walk off the mince pies. Our cafés at the Devil's Punch Bowl and Box Hill serve a warming selection of seasonal food and drink; a perfect pit-stop to warm up after some fun outdoors.

Harvest your own Christmas tree, step out for a Boxing Day walk on the Surrey Hills this festive season or get creative and make a Christmas wreath or natural decorations.

Take a look at what's going on:
