Leith Hill is a wooded hill some 7 km to the south west of Dorking, Surrey, England. The tower was built in 1765 by Richard Hull of Leith Hill Place as 'a place for people to enjoy the glory of the English countryside'.
It can be seen from the surrounding countryside and the top is the highest point in South-East England at 1029ft (329m).
From the top you can see sweeping views and on a clear day you can see the English Channel to the south and the clock face of Big Ben in Westminster to the north.
