“A Very Pleasant Walk”
Review of Leith Hill

Reviewed 5 April 2014

Leith Hill offers fantastic views on clear days. We walked the orange trail a few times and found it best to wear some wellies during wet months. Views from the tower are great as well although the climb up and down the spiral stairs can be tricky when busy.

A nice walk through the woods leading up to great views. On a clear day the views are excellent and there is a viewfinder at the top of the tower to help you look.

We used to go to Leith Hill very regularly some years ago and it was great to go back. Little has changed although hot drinks are now in mugs. A piece of cake at the top was always a highlight and a huge slice of Bakewell did not disappoint.

There are now plenty of benches and from the south you get a great view of open countryside and in the distance Gatwick airport. a clamber up the Tower gives an even better view to both the north, where you can just see the London skyline, and Gatwick

Lots of walks in the area and plenty of parking.

It is a lovely place to spend a few hours

Lovely setting with great views. Cafe at top sells coffee etc. and hearty snacks but bring your own lunch as lots of seats and picnic areas etc.

Have been to Leith Hill a couple of times, once on a fine summer day with the views far reaching and clear. Another time on a foggy winter day, with the South Downs rising out of the mists like islands. Both times beautiful. Admission to the tower is free for NT members and is worth the view. There are indicators at the top showing notable landmarks and distances. There are several car parks in walking distance and various walks through the woods. I will return as there are many more walks to do. In addition, very quiet and peaceful, even in summer.
