Walking through a sea of bluebells – Surry Hills
The Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is one of the most popular recreational areas in the south of England. Bordering the South Downs National Park, the extensive area is a walkers’ paradise. Plenty of walking routes in all kinds of difficulty levels provide a great experience for the whole family.
Around Box Hill, Leith Hill and Devil’s Punch Bowl stretch wide open commons like the Ranmore common and miles and miles of woods.
Prepare yourself for a magical experience in Spring. From April to May, Surry Hills turns into a blue sea. The ancient woodlands are covered over and over with bluebells. During this time, the walks are even more special. The Spring Walk into Bluebell Wood may be just the perfect route for you. Also, Franks Woods at Leith Hill is a beautiful place to experience this natural spectacle.
