Pedal power weekend at Leith Hill Place

Leith Hill from the air

Leith Hill is well used by cyclists from across the country. Over this three day event you'll get to experience a different type of cycle power and find out how powerful your legs can be.

This summer Leith Hill Place is exploring all things linked to cycling in celebration of all those who cycle past the house to reach the highest summit in southern England. From 5 July-26 August (Friday to Sunday) you can read about cycling in the local area and how Dorking became a hub for cyclists from the Victorian age. Find out more.

Cycling focus weekend, 16-18 August, 11am-4pm

This family-focussed weekend will be a chance for you to try a new type of cycling. We will be joined by Harriet Riddell, who has cleverly linked a bicycle to her sewing machine. As you pedal, Harriet will be making a textile 'drawing' of the house. Find out more about Harriet here.

Additionally there will be a 'smoothie bike', as you pedal you can make a smoothie from fruit and juice. Make a small donation to help us pay for the ingredients and hop on to pedal your way to a refreshing drink.

Sweet treats

If all that cycling has got you hungry, then our tea room will be open serving freshly baked scones and cakes. Bring a picnic for your lunch and add something tasty from the kitchen.

Admission charges apply for all activities (£6 adults/£3 children), free for National Trust members. Additional donation applies for smoothie bike to pay for ingredients.
