What to do when you’re there…

Discover a Victorian Hill Fort and the Inglis Memorial, an ideal location for a family outing and picnic. From here you can pick up the North Downs Way National Trail, this 153 mile trail from Farnham to Dover offers spectacular views and a fascinating heritage, passing through the Surrey Hills and the Kent Downs Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. One of the areas hidden gems is Gatton Park, a manor and park with a history dating back to the Domesday Book. The Park was created in the 1760s by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown who blended the gardens with a serpentine lake and woodlands.
