Commencing from Farnham train station, we’ll traverse the landscape, passing a notable landmark that signals the commencement of our trail. The initial section features a relatively flat terrain, guiding us out of the town, through woodlands, and eventually revealing the breathtaking countryside. As we progress along the trail, we’ll encounter the enchanting village of Puttenham and traverse its scenic common, abundant with natural beauty. Our journey will lead us away from the trail at Guildford, where we’ll follow the course of the river Wey, making our way into Guildford and ultimately reaching the train station.

During the weekends we are leaving accommodation open for you to choose something that suits your budget or there are trains returning to Farnham from here.
