Lying just south of London, Surrey is easily accessible and offers a peaceful respite from the round-the-clock buzz of the capital.
The most wooded county in England, the scenery is spectacular. Lush and enticing, the Surrey Hills, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offers incredible vistas to behold throughout the year as leaves change from green to gold. Encompassing well-known beauty spots of Box Hill, Leith Hill and the Devil’s Punch Bowl, walks here are rewarding and idyllic, revealing a side of the UK which many never experience.
There’s plenty of entertainment on offer in the county’s pretty villages and towns, many of which have bridged the gap between old world charm and contemporary living beautifully. Shopaholics will enjoy perusing independent boutiques and branded shops against the backdrop of cobbled streets and medieval and Georgian architecture, whilst an array of eateries and cinemas ensure everyone’s catered for in regards to entertainment.
There are a rich variety of historic houses and heritage sites to explore, including Hampton Court Palace and the castles of Guildford, Reigate and Farnham. Family attractions include Godstone Farm, Wild Wood Adventure and the Brooklands Museum of British Motorsport.
Rent or hire one of the many big houses or holiday homes throughout the region to plan the perfect wedding, conference or family getaway in Surrey.
