I love it here..you can see the Shard, Wembley stadium and Canary Wharf, far beyond the beautiful Surrey hills. I'm told on a bright day you can see the Channel but it's eluded me so far! Great walks and the chance to buy a nice cup of tea too!

Good parking areas with a good variety of walks up to the tower. Access to the tower is available with great view and some of the history of the place available - good coffee / tea / cakes at the small kiosk

As per the title we have just been to Leith Hill again. Plenty of places to park with walks to the top. The autumn colours are glorious and be sure to check out the café in the tower. There are no toilets but plenty of trees. You'll need to have a bit of energy to get up the hills but... More

Parked the car in the allotted car park and took the half mile easy walk to the top of Leith Hill. Stunning views and on a bright summery September well worth the visit.

Not very well signposted however eventually found a small parking area about a mike away. A nice hike up to the monument where refreshments were available. Although a National trust property the small cafe was privately owned. A good variety of drinks, cakes and sandwiches available. An easy walk up the tower although it could be difficult for the elderly.... More

Well worth the walk - incredible far reaching views, added bonus of the servery set in the side of the tower. Stunning place to stand and take in the views whilst drinking a mug of hot chocolate!
