Top walks in Surrey

If you’re in need of a leg-stretch this spring, you’ll find no shortage of trails in Surrey. Here are our top walks from all around the county from Polesden Lacey to Hindhead Commons, Winkworth Arboretum to Leith Hill.

Warmer spring days mean you can shed a few layers, and it's also the time of year when you can experience the world waking up around you – from tiny green shoots pushing up through the soil, to birds nesting in hedgerows and trees bursting into leaf.

Every time you visit, your membership or parking contribution helps us look after these beautiful places for everyone, for ever.

Visitors walking through a garden in spring

Visiting this spring 

Our gardens, parks and countryside sites are open. In England our shops are open, along with outdoor seating at cafés. In Wales some shops are open, and cafés are offering a takeaway service. Houses and other indoor areas are currently closed. The safety of our staff, volunteers and visitors from the nearby community remains our priority. We strongly advise booking your visits in advance, especially over the Easter holidays when places may be very busy. Please check the property webpage before you visit and follow government guidance on travel.
