North Downs — guided trail run

Having been to all the tourist spots in Surrey recently, we've decided to go a little more unknown this time. Heading to the village of Kingswood on the North Downs.

This is a 10 mile undulating circular route that takes us through some excellent scenery including the brilliant Banstead Wood.

Kingswood is accessible by train from London Victoria via East Croydon.
