Hike Description

We start off in Holmwood from where we head for Leith Hill and its famous gothic tower which stands at 329 meters. Our hike will take us across fields and woodlands before a strenuous ascent to Leith Hill. The summit is the highest of the Greensand Ridge and its tower is the highest point in south-east England.

Leith Hill will accommodate us for our lunch, as it's been a renowned spot for picnic since the 19th century. Afterwards, if we're feeling energetic, we will climb the 74 spiral steps of the 18th century tower of Leith Hill to its top, where through the telescope you can see the English Channel on a clear day. Many of London's landmarks could be seen with the naked eye, too.
