Things to see and do at Leith Hill this autumn

Ride, walk or run. Sit quietly and watch the world go by: Leith Hill has been the South East's playground for hundreds of years and it's here for you this season. With views reaching over the Weald to the South Downs and clear vistas of the London skyline, you are so close to hustle and bustle, yet at the same time, miles from it.

Explore Leith Hill on foot

Escape to Leith Hill and explore the many footpaths, woodland walks and breathtaking views the area has to offer. Perfect for a short stroll, or a longer hike. Walks guides are available in our car parks or download one at www.nationaltrust.org.uk/features/walking-at-leith-hill
 

Climb to the top of the tower

Climb the spiral stairs to the top of the tower (not for the faint-hearted) and spot the famous landmarks. Look through one of the telescopes and be amazed how far you can see on a clear day. Can you see the sea?  Built in 1765 by Richard Hull, the top of the tower is the highest point in South-East England. Richard loved the tower so much he is buried under it.
 

Leith Hill Tower exhibition room

Climb half way up the tower to visit our exhibition room, with fascinating tales of the tower and the man who built it, there's even a dressing-up opportunity for the children.
 

Take the dog for a walk

Happy hounds love to bound through the woods and enjoy nothing better than exploring. Treat your best friend to a walk at Leith Hill. Please don't forget to keep your dog on a lead in Dukes Warren between March and July to protect the ground nesting birds.
 

Bird hide

The bird hide in the Rhododendron Wood is a great spot to sit peacefully and watch the comings and goings of native and migratory birds. Let us know what you've seen via the Surrey Hills Facebook page.
