Best views of Surrey . . .

. . . you can drive up to

Boxhill (Tadworth) — Box Hill is considered the UK's first park featuring panoramic views of Dorking, Gatwick Airport towards South Downs and as far as Sussex. A few minutes walk from the National Trust's Visitors’ Centre is Salomons Memorial Viewpoint. The viewing platform was erected in honor Leopold Salomons, a prominent businessman who purchased Box Hill to protect the area from development. It will seem familiar having been prominently featured as part of the 2012 Olympic cycling race course.

Commonwealth Air Forces Memorial (Englefield Green) — The memorial features over 20,000 names of those who lost their lives during World War II, but do not have a known grave anywhere in the world. There is a parking lot closeby and a few spots directly in front of the building for those that are mobility impaired. On a clear day, London Eye, Wembley Stadium and Windsor Castle can be seen. In addition, Runnymede Meadow where the Magna Carta was sealed and a memorial to John F. Kennedy are both within walking distance. 1784 433329

Newland's Corner (Guildford) — In addition to being a picturesque spot to view the Surrey Hills and the location where Agatha Christie’s car was found when she disappeared in 1926, the concession stand attached to the visitors area serves a delicious bacon (English style) and egg sandwich on a soft bun. You can then a short circular walk that makes a loop back to the Centre.
