Line the streets and see all the action
Last year Surrey had more people than The Tour has ever seen lining the streeets to cheer on the cyclists. This year, we want to see even more people joining the fun and creating a fantastic atmosphere.
If you are traveling on or near the race route at the time of the event you may need to allow for additional travel time to get to your destination. If you are held at a junction whilst the race passes through it is likely to be for 10 to 20 minutes.
Best places to watch the action and community events
Cranleigh / Ewhurst
In the Cranleigh / Ewhurst area there is the choice of watching either a Sprint through Ewhurst or a King of the Mountains climb on Barhatch Lane. Cranleigh is a beautiful village andmakes a great base to watch the action. Also in Ewhurst there is a fete providing family fun activities lasting the whole afternoon in the 900 year old church. There will be a bbq and other refreshments available and a host of attractions for all ages.
Coldharbour / Leith Hill
The highest point in the south-east makes an exceptional location to watch the Tour of Britain. The cyclists will have just completed a King of the Mountains climbs as they pass The Plough Inn in Coldharbour. Surrounded by breathtaking scenery, The Plough Inn will be hosting a road-side bbq and they have a great selection of fine ales and other refrshments. For those looking to make a weekend of it, The Plough Inn also has accommodation, the perfect location from which to explore the Surrey Hills.
If you have community events organised for Saturday 21 September on or near the race route please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know. We can help to promote your event, provide advice to ensure you are not disrupted by The Tour of Britain and tell you about any parking restrictions.
The race will be coming through Chobham at about 2:20pm, giving spectators the perfect chance to combine watching the race with attending the Chobham Show at the Village Hall on Station Roa. The Chobham Show starts at 2pm with the dog show commencing at 3pm.
Planning a wedding, christening or faith service?
We are working with the registration service to inform wedding parties if they are likely to be affected by the race. In practice, it's likely that some wedding parties need to allow extra travel time to and from their venue.
