Climb the paths from the car park to the base of the tower. Lovely views from the bottom of the tower where there’s also a little cafe serving drinks and ice creams. Going up the tower is worth the climb. From the top there are...More

Well kept and maintained paths through the woods, and the 20-metre tower is the focal point. Busy little cafe in its base, and very cheap (free for National Trust members) to go to its top. I was pleasantly surprised just how much can bee seen...More

Not our first visit to the Tower here, and the weather obliged us yet again with views right to the South Downs in the far distance (probably nearly 40 miles to the Eastern end passed Firle Beacon) Thoroughly good walking in the area

We visited here recently. The circular walk is nice, passing through woodland and including the Leith Hill Tower at the highest point, offering good views to the north and south. Hot and cold drinks, and snacks, are available at the Tower.

Beautiful area. Lovely, gentle uphill walk from the car park. 2GBP to go up the tower which has a narrow steep staircase, but not too taxing. Once you get up to the top there are telescopes provided and the view is absolutely stunning, weather dependent...More

The nearest car park is at Windy Gap, this will take about 20 minutes to reach the top, but is very steep. There are a couple of other car parks one of which is Starveall, this will take about 40 minutes but is better if you... More
