Long distance walks

f you like a challenge why not walk one of Surrey's long distance routes?

The North Downs Way National Trail  links Farnham with Dover in Kent and offers walkers 153 miles of spectacular scenery, picturesque villages and glorious rolling countryside.

If you'd like a waterside walk, you might like to try the Surrey section of the Thames Path National Trail as it winds south through Spelthorne by the riverside towns of Sunbury and Laleham, from Staines Bridge to Sunbury-on-Thames.   It also winds northward from Staines up to Runnymede and the historic Magna Carta site.  The whole route starts in the Cotswolds and ends at the Thames Barrier in London.

The Greensand Way is named after the sandstone ridge that runs through Surrey. Pause to enjoy the view from Leith Hill, the highest point in southeast England or take time out to explore the historic houses and village pubs along the route.  Starting in Haslemere, the 55 mile Surrey section traverses many of Surrey's hills, to cross into Kent just beyond Limpsfield.  The whole route is 108 miles long and ends on the Kentish coast.

The Downs Link bridleway runs for 37 miles from the North Downs at St Martha's Hill to the South Downs near Steyning, West Sussex. It follows the route of a disused railway line and it's open to walkers, horse riders and cyclists.
