A 4 mile circular walk crossing the borough boundary around Wisley and taking in rivers, canals, heathland and glimpses of RHS Wisley Gardens.

This rural walk is surprisingly quiet, despite it being so close to the A3 and M25. With a mix of riverside paths, heathland and glimpses of RHS Wisley Gardens, this level route will introduce you to some of Surrey’s less well-known scenery and (possibly) wildlife.

The route is flat and most of it is off-road. Some paths and the heathland section can be soft after wet weather.

Good walking shoes are recommended and wearing long trousers at this time of year as there are lots of nettles and brambles.  Please bring rain coats if appropriate, wear sunscreen and bring plently of water if it’s hot.

ThIs event is not suitable for children and/or pushchairs or those with mobility challenges.

Well behaved dogs are welcome. Note: cattle are grazed on the heath so a short lead is essential.

Meeting point: Wisley Common car park – on right in Wisley Lane approx. 1km (0.6 miles) from A3 turning for RHS Wisley Gardens

Nearest postcode: GU23 6QD
