The Surrey Hills


The Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) is one of 37 nationally protected landscapes in England, and was one of the first landscapes to be designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1958, with its beauty being considered equivalent to that of a National Park.

This nationally treasured landscape stretches across a quarter of the county of Surrey and includes the chalk slopes of the North Downs from Farnham in the west to Oxted in the east and extends south to the deeply wooded Greensand Hills which rise in Haslemere.

The Surrey Hills is not only rich in wildlife, woodland, attractive market towns and villages but also provides some of the best walking in southern England.

The Surrey Hills Partnership was established in 1998 to protect the beauty of the Surrey Hills for the safe use and enjoyment of all.

The area includes some of the most breath-taking places to visit in Surrey including Box Hill, Leith Hill, The Devils Punchbowl, Newlands Corner, Frensham Ponds, Guildford Castle Grounds, Silent Pool, Holmbury Hill Fort along with historic market towns like Haslemere, Godalming, Farnham and what is believed to be the largest village in England, Cranleigh.
