“Beautiful”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

Beautiful views at Box Hill, kept clean and in good condition. Great little footpaths to walk around, more than sufficient parking spaces as well as a cafe if you need a refreshment. Been here early morning and evening time, it's great at anytime of day. Watching the sunrise on Box Hill is lovely.

“Unsurpassable views”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Such a memorable beauty spot with great views from a great height! I bought fish and chips in Dorking and had a surprise picnic at the view point with my husband. Ketchup and a few cans of cooled lager and we were sorted!

“Wonderful views”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

This is a wonderful place to visit. However, this is best done on weekday evenings. Unfortunately most other times it is too busy. Great walking and a wonderful National Trust restaurant at the top. Great for family walks!

“Extraordinary Views”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

I have been coming here for about 60 years, originally by bike and in recent years by car. It never fails to delight, with its superb views over the southern home counties. I particularly like the fact that it has never been over-developed, and the National Trust has retained the essential rural charm of the place. It is very suitable for family picnics, with plenty of space for ball games, kites and walks.

“Outstanding views of the Surrey countryside”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

Box Hill is very busy with cyclist, bikers, families, etc but parking is still available at the top. National Trust wagon with leaflets on different walks you can do. We opted for the Hill Top Stroll about 20 mins and finished off with lunch a little further down the road at the Tree on Box Hill.
