Activity

This 9 mile linear walk takes in Reigate Heath, North Downs Way, Walton Heath, village of Walton on the Hill and Epsom racecourse. We start at Reigate, through lanes of Surrey villas and climb onto Reigate Heath. This has fine views and has a unique windmill also serving as a church. We then climb on an ancient trackway to the heights of the North Downs. We plan picnic stop at viewpoint of Colley Hill, with views far south towards South Downs. Our walk continues across Banstead and Walton Heath to reach the charming village of Walton on the Hill. There are pubs and tea shops around the village pond. We then head north to climb up to the Epsom Downs and our crossing of the famous racecourse (public right of way when no racing is scheduled). Option to continue to Epsom via historic lanes or short cut to Tattenham Corner station by racecourse.
