"My New Home Town" Leatherhead by zuriga

Leatherhead Travel Guide: 16 reviews and 35 photos

Surrey Hills

Deep in the heart of the Surrey Hills lies my new home.. Leatherhead. The River Mole runs through this perfect, English village... what a place to walk each day. The river got its name because of how it tunnels underground between Leatherhead and Dorking.*



Pros and Cons

    Your photos & commentaries to Leatherhead are particularly pleasant. I guess it's the richest part of the country, so the establishment can afford to keep budget shopping centres, council housing, yob culture at arms' length. Enjoy it!

    Interesting Leatherhead page. I was there for a business meeting a few years ago, but did not see much of the town. I should spent more time exploring it!

    That's amazing; I was looking at your Leatherhead place while you wrote that! I like the Fire and Iron Gallery there. Have you been?
