A really pleasant afternoon out. We parked in the “Landslip” car park and walked on up to the top of Leith Hill itself, the car park is free to national trust members and a small fortune if your not. The walk to the top of the hill is only about ¾ of a mile but it did contain some steep... More

The hike to the top of Leith Hill takes you up numerous stairs and stretches through the forest, but the trek is worth it for the views up top. Bring a couple of pounds for tea at the top near the tower, and be sure to look out over the valley to see the Gatwick airport flyways above.

There are plenty of places to stop... More

Best other than at the weekend. Various stages of energy and expertise defines the climb to the top. Most popular simpler route is a steady walk uphill to the tower. The tower is open often to climb up. Hot drinks and snacks available. Children love the area.

One of the best places to walk in the south east of England. You can walk for hours surrounded in beautiful countryside and the views are outstanding.

The legend says a man is buried upside down on top of his horse in the tower...at least that is what my Grandad used to say. I have walked on top of Leith Hill many times as a child and return every 5-10 years to admire the view.

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.
