Fodor's Review

Set in a forested park 8 miles outside Guildford, this is a wild, fanciful place where giant metal spiders climb trees, bronze horses charge up hillsides, and metal girls and boys dance on lakes. You follow signposted paths across the parkland, spotting tiny sculptures up in trees, and walking through the legs of other more gigantic creations. You can also follow the footpath beside the little car park outside up to the Devil's Jumps, a rugged local beauty spot

with views over the South Downs. The name derives from a piece of folklore: one night the devil stole a cauldron from a local witch, who gave chase on her broomstick. With each leap the devil kicked up huge clods of earth, which in turn became hills—hence "jumps." The park is off the A287 between Guildford and Farnham.
