A circular easy-access walk around Gatton Park in Surrey, a beautiful area of parkland designed by Lancelot Capability Brown, giving you a glimpse into its diverse history. This walk is published through a collaboration with the Surrey County Council. Gatton Park is very popular so arrive early on peak days otherwise you may find the car park full. The walk has several slopes throughout, including a couple of quite steep sections. Most of the route follows stone tracks but the sections of path through woodland can be muddy and slippery in places, particularly in wet weather. There are no stiles, steps or kissing gates on route, but you will need to negotiate some staggered barrier gaps alongside vehicle gates (which are approximately 1 metre wide but have tight corners). According to the National Trust, the wide gates alongside these staggered barriers are normally unlocked Easter to October. As such, it would be probably be possible to take a rugged pushchair or disability buggy around the route Easter to October, assuming you can handle the steep sections. Dogs are welcome in Gatton Park, please keep them on leads for the short sections where advised, as sheep are often grazing in the adjacent parkland. Approximate time 1 to 1.5 hours. There are toilets and a popular cafe kiosk (Junction 8) in the car park at the start of the walk. Ordnance Survey Map: Explorer 146 Dorking, Box Hill and Reigate. This walk follows public footpaths and bridleways which cross private and public land. Information is included for your interest, but please respect people's privacy, keep dogs under control and remember the Countryside Code.

Nice easy circuit of Gatton Park with some fab views. Nice and quiet too. A good walk for a pair of wellies in the Autumn!

Very easy walk, lovely views and easy parking. Nice walk that took us less than an hour to walk it.

A well guided walk, a few steeper hills towards the end, but nothing too strenuous.

Gatton Trail marker posts disappeared at the Millenium Stones, although these directions were accurate. Not sure whether the black marker posts were meant to be numbered, but they weren’t.
