With London on the doorstep, Surrey has plenty to offer. From fun family activities, to mouth-watering restaurants, cafes and pubs there is something for everyone.
Steeped in history, the region’s picturesque villages and vibrant market towns nestle in stunning countryside. Medieval monarchs once made their home in the county, and visitors can see the mark they left on the area in the castle keeps, abbey ruins and quaint cobbled streets that dot the region.
Surrey’s largest town is Guildford which boasts a rich history, beginning life as a Saxon village around 400 AD. The town’s impressive castle was built shortly after the Norman conquest of 1066, and one of the finest examples of a medieval Undercroft anywhere in the country was built there sometime at the end of the 13th century. It is thought that this stone vaulted semi-basement was a merchant’s shop selling wine or expensive silk.
