Welcome to Leatherhead

At the gateway to the Surrey Hills, located where the rolling chalk hills of the North Downs meets the Thames lowlands, Leatherhead has always enjoyed a tradition as host to the traveller or visitor.

The picturesque town of Leatherhead is surrounded by greenery and within each reach of the Surrey Hills. The River Mole is just a few minutes stroll from the town centre ensuring peace and relaxation.

Shops, cafes, galleries and a theatre sit amongst an eclectic mix of architectural styles. The ancient parish church and historic houses of past local families are evidence of a varied past and a lively town.
