Esher Common Walk
Enjoy a cycle or walk around this large open space in Surrey. There are miles of peaceful woodland footpaths and a nice off road cycle track. The route will take you to two large ponds and the nearby Fairmile common. The common is a local nature reserve so look out for a variety of wildlife.
If you would like to continue your exercise why not visit the nearby Claremont Park with its beautiful landscaped gardens and the adjacent West End Common.

Head to the nearby Prince of Wales pub for some refreshments after your walk. The pub has a lovely garden area which is ideal for warm summer days. It enjoys a lovely setting in West End, a hamlet with little more than a few residential streets and a local farm shop, Garson’s, where you can buy local produce and pick your own fruit and vegetables during the summer months. A large pretty green and duck pond are also just 30 metres away from the pub’s front doors. You can find the pub at 48 West End Lane with a postcode of KT10 8LA for your sat navs.
The commons are a popular place for dog walkers so you will probably see plenty of other owners with their pets. The Prince of Wales pub mentioned above is also very dog friendly and even have a little dog menu so your pet can enjoy some dinner with you.
