Box Hill hike with sunbathing, adventure play in North Downs of Surrey Hills

The Box Hill area is within the Surrey Hills area and a section of the North Downs, a wonderful area for hiking, mountain biking, trail running or a simple, family day out and a picnic. My 4.5 mile loop took me through some tremendous natural beauty!

In the stunning North Downs, Box Hill is a must for a solo hiker or family. Fantastically maintained by the National Trust who have done a great job of making the shorter adventure hikes a pleasure for the young children. There are lots of adventure play activities for the kids along many of the trails. The young ones are guaranteed to love this natural space whilst giving you, the adult, lots to take-in too.
