Box Hill

This is a free sample walk but you need to log in as a member of Walkingworld to access the details. Join or log in above if you are already a member.

Box Hill is a famous Surrey beauty spot. It takes its name from the box trees that grow in abundance and is also reputed to have the finest yew woods in Southern England. Renowned for its outstanding views, the walker is assured a splendid panorama in all directions. Beautiful at any time of year, it is especially glorious on a midsummer morning. With its mix of woodland and chalk downland, it is home to a wide variety of flora and fauna.

Well-trodden paths with no brambles or nettles, just some hills to climb; the middle section can be muddy after wet weather.

Very nice walk! We did this yesterday (28/8/14). There doesn't appear to be a sign for 'The Zig Zag' any longer (or we missed it going up and down a couple of times looking for it). At way point 7 we got lost and walk about for some time trying to work out which path to take. The 'fallen logs' in the photo here don't seem to exist any longer. Also, somewhat embarrassingly, we didn't really know what a Yew tree looks like! The meadow section, between 8 and 9, was really lovely. Thanks guys!
