Second visit to the common. A great place to stroll and see a good range of wildlife. Amazing butterflies and possibly the best site for Silver Wash Fritillarys. Dog friendly shame the car parking is a bit pricey and you have to pay by phone.
Great Bookham Common is a great place for hacking. Well maintained bridle ways. A couple of areas get rather boggy. But over all you can ride round the lakes without getting muddy in the winter months.
Just live around the corner and o ly occasionally really walked/cycled the common. Now have puppy in tow and loving it. So peaceful meet like minded people out walking. Very enjoyable andvust now at least several times a week.
Do visit Bookham Common if you get a chance! It's a National Trust reserve, with lots of different habitats encouraging lots of different wildlife. Great for families, kids and dogs, biking and horseriding - don't miss the bird hide too - great for a spot...More

We have walked here for a few years, it is a wonderful place to walk and see birds. Its very good for wood peckers especially in the spring and summer months. The paths are good in most areas but some can get a little water...More
The common supports an incredible variety of flora and fauna including the rare purple emperor butterfly. There are several ponds and well managed woodland. Lots of dog walkers but be aware that there are deer.
