About the Event



Distance: 18 kilometres  

Ascent: 500 metres  

Difficulty:Hard , please be aware that there are very steep climbs through the woods  

Hiking time: About 6 hours  

A challengingly long hike which rewards you with a small waterfall .  

Breathtaking views = Weezing and panting as you ascend the highest point in South West England, below London.  

Waterfall = Cascade that looks like a rain drizzle on your iPhone.  

ITINERARY (subject to changes): 

We will start at Holmwood Station and walk towards Leith Hill Tower, the highest point in below London.  From here, on a good day, you can see London and beyond. 

We climb Leith Hill from the steepest point, cuz I wanna see your ass burn.  After a lunch break and taking in the views at Leith Hill, we take the Greensand towards Dorking.  On this path, we will pass through some pretty water features (if you like that sort of thing).  

We end at the idyllic village of Dorking where we will make our way to the station and get the train back to London.  


We'll meet at Waterloo Station at 09:00 am  

FOOD: We'll stop during the hike for a snack lunch so please bring food and drink.  

At the top of Leith Hill, there is a café serving decent sandwiches and lovely soup; you can buy those with cash if preferred.  

COST: £15 per person  

It does not include train tickets.  

We can get a group discount if we buy tickets together, but you are free to buy alone or meet us at a different point.  


Money for train tickets (group save)  

£2 to climb the Tower (not necessary as you still have fantastic views from the hill).
