The estate at Polesden Lacey

A beautiful view down a hillslope. Autumnal trees can be seen.

The Polesdon Estate in Surrey is a perfect place to enjoy some family time. From child and dog friendly walks around the estate to fun activities and treats in the National Trust gift shop and restaurant you can get active and reward yourselves afterwards.

Try one of our signposted walks

The estate team have been hard at work re-signposting the Polesden walks so you can find your way more easily. There are now four main walks, each with its own name, colour and symbol. The walks have all been newly marked out and finger posted in both directions. Pick up a new leaflet for only £1 from Visitor Reception, and try our easiest walk: the Chalkpit Walk, which is great for kids. Or if you're feeling energetic, head off for the whole afternoon and take in our woodland walks and stunning views of the Polesden Valley.

Polesden charcoal

We make charcoal using FSC-certified wood cut down as part of our conservation work. It burns well and only has to travel a short distance to be sold in the gift shop. The money raised helps fund further projects.
