My partner recommended Box Hill for a walk, the view from the very top of the Hill was fantastic and we had a great time walking along the woodland path. In addition, the stepping stones are a great place to travel over.

Our kids (5 + 20 months) had a great time on the Children’s Natural Trail at Box Hill. All of the play areas are made from felled logs from the forrest with lots of dens made of branches, logs to balance along, 3 ropes swings and more. The route is 2 miles long and took us 2hrs 20mins with a 20 month old walking most of the way (so slow pace). The path is flat all the way, but at this time of year (November) it is very muddy in places so wellies are a must and all-in-one waterproofs a good idea for minimum stress and maximum fun! We took our pram and it got round but was caked with mud at the end! Well worth a visit. Note: there are no charges for entry for any of the walks at Box hill and the car park cost £3 for 2 hours. You pay for the car park via Paybyphone but the reception in the car park isn’t great, so if you have time download the Paybyphone App in advance.

What a wonderful space, but the signposting was so poor that we eventually just had to walk and hope for the best. We wanted to do the Juniper Top route, but the signs simply stopped. NT should try to keep all the signage in place. I realise they do not provide maps at the moment, and the large displays at the Visitor Centre didn't help. So, be warned!

Several marked walks , some mainly along the top of the area but most descend to the River Mole and involve a step climb back up. Beware cyclists, this was part of the Olympic cycling route. Cafe and shop (bins are circular holes in the wall) There is a well recommended Burger Restaurant a bit further along the road. Very dog friendly.

A beautiful place to visit for wonderful views but we were disappointed that after walking down to the stepping stones, the recent heavy rain meant they were not visible. Walk was lovely but very steep and muddy in places. We will try and visit again when it is drier.
