Near the World of Adventures – a country walk in Surrey. A pleasant walk with few hills that take in part of the Thames Down Link. Travel west from the station, crossing the A243, then south skirting the World of Adventures park, through Chessington Wood, over Rushett Lane then Rushett Farm and back a short way to the pub for lunch. The morning walk is 3 miles. After lunch walk up to Epsom Common and West Park Farm along the Thames Down Link to Horton Country Park, then head NW to Chessington South Station. No convenient dropout points, although those wishing a shorter walk can take a bus from near the pub at lunchtime back to the station.
