This is a great place to get into the fresh air. Perfect for walking the dog and you can get great views from the tower.

This is a fab place to walk dogs and for family outings/picnics. There is a cafe in the Tower at the top where you can see for miles on a clear day. It isn't open every day though.

I always plot on an iPhone app where I have parked my car now as once we got completely lost and it was getting dark being winter!!! Rather a scary scenario!!!!! There are so many different tracks which all look very similar !!!!!!

Parked in the Windy Gap Car Park and walked up to the Tower at the top of the hill. Beautiful late summer's afternoon with stunning views to the north and south. Unfortunately the Tower was closed by the time we got there. The one thing I felt it lacked was a map at ground level telling the observer what he could see in the distance i.e. Box Hill, Ockley or Gatwick Airport for example. Next time I must remember to take a map with me! Having said that the walk is well worth the effort!

Leith Hill will always hold a special place in my heart, I've been coming here since I was young and will continue to visit when in the area. Providing you're not shy about hilly terrain, it's a lovely winding walk leading up to the tower, which itself offers breath-taking views on a clear day.
