If you’re looking for something at a slower pace like going for a relaxing stroll through the ‘Surrey hills’, there are plenty of beautiful sights to be seen. In Dorking there are the two famous Hills. Box Hill, named for its vast amount of Box trees, which played host to a number of the cycling races for the 2012 Olympics. You will always see a number of keen cyclists who flock there to ride the Olympic course come rain or shine. The other hill in Dorking is Leith Hill, which is the highest point in the South of England. On a clear day you can see as far as London and can make out some of the iconic landmarks.

With its tall statuesque structure, it is perched up high looking down over the beautiful town of Guildford.
Across surrey there are plenty more amazing sights to be seen including gardens and parks, historic house and castles, and museums.
