Bit cheeky they charge you to get inside the tower but if that's what it takes to keep the place maintained and clean so be it. Really great walks in the surrounding area, and of course the view from the tower is particularly impressive. There's...More

The tower is right on top of hill, lots of routes to hike arround. Do have to pay £2 to go inside the tower, but u do get great views from up top. Small cafe at base of tower, no facilities.

We only walk up Leith Hill to get the pies ( and the views ofcourse!) Its part of TanHouse, which is a favorite of mine and the kids. Yum.

Beautiful folly set in breathtaking landscape. Bit of a climb, but worth it. Visit Leith Hill Place at same time, home of Vaughan Williams, especially when rhododendrons are blooming. Have coffee and cake at Tower and climb up if you have the puff!

Walked up the hill with some friends of different fitness levels and all were able to do the walk ok. Definitely a must do while in the area.

Visited here on our recent walk. The tower offers amazing views of the Surrey countryside especially on a clear day. The property is owned by the National Trust so there is a charge to go up if a non member. You can get refreshments on...More

Climbed to the tower and the view was amazing, albeit a bit cloudy and windy. Take some binoculars as the views are amazing and even better through the binoculars! The "cafe" has a great choice of drinks, food and snacks and there is plenty of...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
