Leatherhead Guide


Picturesquely located in the Mole Valley of northern Surrey in England, Leatherhead is a great base for visitors wishing to explore the beautiful Surrey Hills, surrounding countryside and a range of local attractions.

Car hire is by far the best way to explore this part of England, however if you decide to venture into London it may be best to park in a Park & Ride.

Explore Leatherhead

To the south of the town is its most significant landmark, the medieval church of St Mary and St Nicholas. Its 15th century tower overlooks the picturesque River Mole and its floodplain, where watercolour landscape painter Joseph Turner got his inspiration from. Inside the church is a beautiful carved chalk chancel arch which dates back to the 12th century. It was reconstructed during the 14th century.

Leatherhead has a number of charming heritage buildings, such as its Medieval timber framed buildings, Georgian houses and Victorian Gothic villas. Visitors should begin their historical tour in Hampton Cottage, which is on Church Street. Here you will come across a timber framed house of the 17th century, home to the Leatherhead Museum of Local History.

Leatherhead has a lovely 14-arch bridge, a selection of galleries, shops, theatres and cafés. A great time to visit Leatherhead is in October, during the annual arts festival. The town centre consists of the pedestrianised High Street, housing many shops and restaurants.

Surrounding the town are attractions to suit all ages. The Surrey Hills offers numerous walks and beautiful scenery, and located within the hills are quaint villages, historic houses and guided walks. Notable parks include Ashstead Park, Norbury Park and Polesden Lacey.

More modern destinations include: Bocketts Farm, where children can experience farm animals first-hand; Chessington World of Adventures, one of the country's leading theme parks; and Denbies Wine Estate, England's largest working winery.


Leatherhead lies just off the M25 (junction 9) at the gateway to the Surrey Hills and is halfway between Heathrow and Gatwick Airports, with a fast and frequent train service to Central London.

Public services such as trains, and buses are probably the cheapest and surprisingly fastest way of travelling in and around London. However, if you wish to explore the Surrey countryside then we highly advise you to book cheap car hire in Leatherhead with us.

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver.
