Banstead Heath

3 miles (5 km)

This large open space in Banstead has lots of walking trails to follow. There's also bridleways which are suitable for cyclists. Part of the Banstead Commons the heath covers 760acres with miles of paths popular with dog walkers and cyclists. It's a very pretty area with meadow grasses, wildflowers, woodland and mixed heather. It's great for wildlife too with Linnet, Yellowhammers, Redpoll, Reed Bunting and a variety of butterflies to look out for.
The Epsom Downs circular walk skirts the heath so you could pick this up to extend your walk. Also nearby are Banstead Downs and Banstead Woods.

Pubs/Cafes

The Sportsman is located on the southern edge of the heath at Mogador. The country pub is thought to date back to 1532 when it was a hunting lodge for Henry VIII. They have a fine menu and a lovely large garden area to relax in on warmer days. You can find them at postcode KT20 7ES for your sat navs.

Dog Walking

The woodland and heathland paths are ideal for dog walking so you'll probably bump into other owners on your visit. The Sportsman mentioned above is also dog friendly.
