This is a public event – all are welcome. All entries are on the day but we encourage you to please RSVP to the event via Facebook (event link to follow) or email to let us know you are coming so that the correct number of maps are printed.

New for 2018:

We will have SIAC contactless dibbers available for hire at all our events this season for an additional £2 (normal dibbers available free of charge as usual).

Event Centre

This event will be based at The Sportsman, Mogador Road, Tadworth KT20 7ES (near M25 Jn 8).

Toilets are available before and after the event, and lunch is available from 12pm – please leave any muddy shoes at the door. The pub gets very busy on Sundays so please book in advance if you wish to eat in the restaurant. Bar snacks are also available and there is a large garden.

The present building was originally built as a hunting lodge for Henry VIII in 1532. The pub is located next to Banstead / Walton Heath, and is ideal for walking (for those who don’t wish to cycle).

Getting there

  • By car, the pub is 1 km from the A217 and 1.5 km from the M25 Jn8. No parking will be permitted in the pub car park. Please park on Mogador Road (around the corner from the pub). Alternatively, if approaching from the M25, please consider parking at Margery Woods NT Car Park (first turning on the left off the A217).
  • By train, Tadworth and Kingswood Stations are both an easy 15 min warm up ride away. The A217 is a busy dual carriageway, with no cycle path. The bridleways across Banstead
    Heath provide a safer and more direct route.
