    Box Hill is one of the most famous hills in Surrey, if not the UK. Named after the ancient box woodland on its slopes, the hill is blanketed in green and enjoys panoramic viewpoints over the surrounding countryside and Dorking.

    Box Hill has become more and more popular with cyclists after it featured in the 2012 Olympics cycling road race events. Around 850,000 people now visit the hill each year. Managed by the National Trust, you can follow in the pedal strokes of Olympians and ride the Box Hill circuit that climbs up to 390 feet (120 meters), although the hill's highest point is 735 feet (224 meters) at Betchworth Clumps.

    It's an amazing view at the top of the hill of Surrey and there's a lovely cafe too.

    A classic surrey climb. You can test yourself on the same roads as the pros

    Beautiful spot! It's much quieter in the mornings so get down early! Or around sunset for a gorgeous sky glow.

    Beautiful view from the top of Box Hill. For cyclists, there's a nice cafe just after it, and plenty of areas where you can sit down, recover a bit and enjoy the panorama!

    Great place to stop for coffee but if everybody decide to get coffee, you will wait ages

    Box Hill is the classic zig-zag climb made famous by the Ride London UCI race and Ride 100 charity event... and it's actually a lot easier than it looks (although perhaps not as easy as the professionals make it look) - a fund climb with stunning views over the Surrey Hills and Weald! Arrive early to guarantee yourself a seat at the café!

    You need to climb a bit to get there, but it's worth the effort
