Throwley lies on top of the North Downs in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The landscape is mainly arable fields and woodland copses covering just over 5 square miles.  The Parish has many marked footpaths enabling the countryside to be explored (see the map). The population is scattered across a number of hamlets, the largest of which is Throwley Forstal, others include Wilgate Green, Bells Forstal & Tong Green.

Within the Parish is Belmont, an elegant 18th century house with a fine collection of clocks and beautiful gardens. The estate was owned by successive generations of the Harris family, it is now held in trust.
