I love Leith Hill. Great for walking, loads of things to see. Great views and a tower at the top which has a tea hut which serves homemade soup and a lump of bread.

We often come here. The walks can be as long or as short as you choose. A good place to spend a couple of hours.

On a sunny day Leith Hill is one of the nicest places on earth. I could sit for hours looking out over the countryside, and watching the planes landing into LGW. As others have mentioned, from the tower on a clear day you can see LHR, the Wembley Arch, The Shard, Canary Wharf to the North, and the South Downs... More

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.
