Part of a 200-year-old estate set in a beautiful, secluded valley in the heart of the Surrey Hills, Bury Hill Fisheries near Dorking is one of the finest day ticket fisheries in the UK.


Whether you are looking for 40 lb carp, 30 lb pike, double-figure zander or huge match nets of tench, bream, crucian, roach, rudd and perch, you’ll find unrivalled sport across four lakes totalling 20 acres.

From buzzers screaming to floats dipping and quiver tips pulling round, there’s a world of fishing to enjoy in magnificent surroundings with the very best of facilities. Your first trip to Bury Hill is always the first of many.

Situated just 20 miles from central London and easily accessed by public transport, the fishery is disabled friendly and permanently staffed, making it ideal for youngsters who, together with OAP's and disabled anglers, benefit from concessionary prices. Bury Hill also has a fully stocked on-site shop, a café and ladies and gents toilets to make your stay as pleasurable and comfortable as possible.

Old Bury Hill Lake
A 200-year-old tree-lined Victorian Estate Lake surrounded by irises and lilies. At 12 acres there are 75 pegs. Old Bury Hill or the ‘Old Lake’ as it is known holds a fantastic head of specimen carp with several 30’s and plenty of doubles and 20’s, and is also noted for huge catches of specimen tench and bream, and outstanding winter predator sport with numerous double-figure zander and pike to 30 lb plus. Fishing is available from both the bank or from purpose built punts giving access to the famous 'jungle', which is noted for its huge catches of specimen tench.

Milton Lake
Milton at 30 pegs is stocked with large numbers of tench, crucian carp, roach, rudd, perch and bream as well as a few smaller carp to allow anglers to find a haven away from the tackle-busting doubles and 20-pounders that often muscle in elsewhere on the complex. Pleasure catches to 250 lb are commonplace during the spring and summer months whilst match hauls routinely exceed 100 lb.

Bonds Lake
A 20 peg lake full of hard fighting small carp averaging 3-4 lb for great carp crunching sport, with tench, roach, rudd and bream for variety. A venue for beefy pole elastic or powerful float and feeder rods, Bonds regularly out-fishes all other lakes due to the head of greedy carp under 10 lb. Pleasure catches average well over 50 lb during the warmer months, the two hour match record is a massive 86 lb and top match weight over 300lb making it very popular for club bookings.

Temple Lake
Old Bury Hill’s land of the giants, Temple is an unashamed out-and-out specimen carp venue, the result of a £350,000 investment in 2003 when a tailor made big carp lake was constructed and stocked with pedigree English carp. Every bite results in a carp over 20 lb, averaging around 25 lb. Temple currently holds up to a dozen different 30-pounders which run to upper 30s. Temple is run on an exclusive membership basis with an annual joining fee.

Just no


I wouldn't say 'just no' but is not an easy place to fish, but rewards are great.

Excellent fishery, get it right and the rewards are endless! Caught alot of my pb's there. Recommend highly!


First time at Bury Hill, love this place! Predator Fished long bank with 3 catches for day. 2 pike and 1 nice Zander all on sprats ( whole ). £18 for two rods... Little bit on pricey side since closed at 4.15 pm but justified for the quality of fish. Will defo return... And looking forward to it already


Great fishing really nice & helpful people


Love it there, out of the way and very tranquil. All the guys in the shop are very helpful, listen to them and you'll definitely catch.


Great place to fish. Bonds is great for beginer to intermediate anglers looking to catch a few low doubles or for a very conpetetive match. Float fished prawn in the margin has always worked well for me




Great place ! And what a helpful staff! Will definitely be coming back



the carp love maggots when the suns out

martin 26

Milton lake just use maggots and you don't have to cast far
