Stunning views, intrigue and fun at Farnham Park

October 28, 2021

Witness spectacular Surrey views from this stunning countryside setting, explore the intriguing, 320-acre landscape, or play a spot of sport – there is much to enjoy in Farnham Park. 

It is no surprise that the park has received the Green Flag Award for four years running. Immerse yourself in the gorgeous scenery, meander through valleys, relish the peaceful retreat of hidden dells and amble alongside streams and ponds. Stop for a break on the crossbench to take in the wonderful views overlooking Farnham, as well as the countryside beyond. 

Beautiful ancient trees are dressed in an array of colours this time of year. Towering veteran oaks feature a “King Oak" and a wishing tree, so place your wishes for the coming year with your loved ones!

The children will enjoy the adventure playground, with smaller children benefitting from their own, more gentle playing area.

A Site of Nature Conservation Importance, the park is host to a variety of wildlife. Watch out for high flying kestrels, buzzards, and red kites searching for prey, or flocks of redwings and fieldfare, often seen this time of year. Grazing cattle also wander the green spaces. You might be lucky enough to see owls or bats inhabiting the woodland, too.

Originally a medieval deer park created by the Bishop of Winchester in 1376, you will also see elegant Roe Deer, especially within the “Deer Den" at the park. 

Classified by English Heritage as a Grade II Listed Historic Park & Garden, there are also more formal gardens and avenues to take pleasure in.

Refreshments are available at The Golf Club’s cafe, also benefitting from toilet facilities. Sporty types will appreciate the 9-hole golf course, the cricket club, and the two football pitches.

Also classed as An Area of Historic Landscape Value, the park is a prehistoric site, dotted with artifacts and remnants from vastly different eras in the timeline.

Stone Age flint, Iron Age, and Roman coins have all been discovered there. Fought over in the Civil War, the park has been used for a range of activities by the military over the years.

Historical features from World War II include an Air Raid Shelter, and the Spigot Mortar site was manned by the Home Guard to protect the approach to Farnham Castle. 

Set right at the heart of Surrey, this beautiful park is just a short walk away from Farnham’s bustling market town centre. Parking is just off Folly Hill, postcode: GU9 0AU.
