Enjoy the countryside in a new way this autumn
The long-awaited Newlands Corner Discovery Centre is now open for visitors to enjoy and learn more about the local area and nature at this iconic spot in the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
Over the past two years, we've been working in partnership with the Albury Estate, and local partners to improve the facilities and make sure residents and visitors of all ages and abilities can enjoy spending time at Newlands Corner. Here is what's changed and why you should visit:
The NEW Discovery Centre
We've opened our Discovery Centre which has interactive screens and interpretation boards to provide you with information about Surrey's countryside in general as well as local wildlife. A great place for families to visit and learn about what wildlife they might spot and why looking after our countryside is important.
Improvements at Newlands Corner
You'll find an array of improvements at this countryside spot to make your visit here even more enjoyable. Here are some of the improvements:
- Have fun outdoors using the new natural play area for families which is built using wood from a sustainable source on the Albury Estate.
- Take advantage of a new water fountain to refill water bottles.
- Explore the site by taking the new 'deer' and 'dormouse' self-guided walking trails.
- Look over a new wildlife garden with bug hotel and hibernaculum and see what you can spot.
