About Box Hill

Box Hill is one of the best known features in the North Downs. Only 20 miles from the centre of London, it is a haven of natural beauty with about a million visitors every year.  Those numbers mean that special care is necessary to protect its many rare species of flora and fauna.

If you would like to take an interactive birds-eye view tour of Box Hill see the video below. You can make the video full screen once you start it – click on the three dots in the top, right hand corner.

It was produced using a NT licensed drone, funded by the Friends of Box Hill, whose main purpose was to support the conservation work undertaken by NT and FOBH on Box Hill.



Box Hill had its Centenary in 2014 – 100 years since Leopold Salomons gave Box Hill to National Trust. As part of the celebration Friends of Box Hill produced the following video to showcase Box Hill.
