Best Views in Surrey? Guildford to Dorking Walk (28th Jan 09 at 11:59am UTC)
A 9-10 mile walk from Guildford BR station to Dorking BR station via North Downs Way


I admit I did this walk last summer - and have only just recently done Leith Hill (on a cloudy day) BUT I thought the views from Martha's Church, Newlands Corner and Steer's Field could be the best in Surrey - but I still have a lot of walks to do, any suggestions?

You can find similar walks between BR stations (no need for private transport) here:

This walk is here:

Newland's Corner is nice too

Have a look at the Surrey Wildlife Trust for some inspirational locations - they do a fantastic job!

Wisley Common, Ockham and Chatley Heath

Nice pictures, I would also recommend joining the East Surrey Group if you enjoy the many benefits of walking {Smile}

Looks great {Cheesy} reminds me of when i was last on top of box hill. I'll have to go again soon when the weather gets a bit warmer.

I know this is completely off-topic but are you technically allowed to barbecue on box hill?

I think Box Hill is National Trust, and quoting their site:
"Fires and barbecues are generally not allowed. If you are planning a picnic at a National Trust property for the first time, please telephone the property in advance to check."

Box Hill is amazing, the only problem is I have never been there in the daytime so this is actually one of a few pictures I have seen and it always seems so lovely!
