Guildford to Gomshall

Guildford to Gomshall - Book 2 Walk 13
10.7 miles / 17.1 km (Main walk)

This walk starts with a steep climb out of Guildford up to the dramatic viewpoint of Pewley Down.  It then joins the North Downs Way to climb to the hilltop church of St Martha-on-the-Hill.
Lunch is in the pretty village of Shere at the foot of the downs. After lunch the route heads back up onto the downland before descending to Gomshall.

Trains: Take the 9:35 Portsmouth Harbour train from London Waterloo to Guildford, arriving at 10:16. 
Return trains from Gomshall are at 15:53, 17:53 etc to London Waterloo (changing at Guildford), or 16:04, 18:04 etc to London Bridge (changing at Redhill).
You will need a day return to Gomshall via any permitted route (to allow outward travel via Guildford).

Lunch: The White Horse (01483 202518) is a popular stop in the centre of the village, but you could also try the William Bray, a gastro pub 40m further up the road, or the Dabbling Duck tea room and restaurant.

The Compasses Inn in Gomshall is the recommended place to wait for the next train..
