POLESDEN LACY -THE HILLY WAY 500m & 10 miles-Join me for the first hike of 2014 and a fabulously beautiful walking workout. We hike up the Mickledown Downs, Norbury Park and up to the the Edwardian house at Polesden Lacy. After lunch we follow the trail into Ranmore Common and then Denbie's vineyards on the home stretch. Although, it is a modest distance compared to some of our recent hikes it is will put you through you paces with a few heart pumping hills. Only for those you can keep up a power pace (approximately 3 miles hour or roughly 5km).
Lunch will be in the manicured grounds on Polesden Lacy. You have an option to buy a hot lunch and eat inside the National trust cafe or bring a packed lunch and do a picnic. No reservation or pre-orders on this hike.
COST: £ 8.50 for guides hike with a trained Walking Group leader and Outdoor first aider.
Victoria 9:31 to Box Hill & West Humble Station 10:21am
Estimated return time depends on the speed of the group but I anticipate you will be back at Boxhill station to catch either the 16:28 or 17:28 train back to Victoria. The walk ends at a cool country pub for those that need to wait for a train.
Post a comment to find a group of four for a GROUPSAVER discount.
There is limited parking at the station or you can use the free car park at Ryka's cafe at the bottomof box hill a 5 minute walk away.
Post a comment if you can offer a lift and want help with petrol cost.
