Visiting Surrey – An Area Guide
Bordering Greater London to the southwest, the county of Surrey is a patchwork of market towns, commuter villages and expanses of rolling countryside, like the North Downs within the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It's dotted with historic parks, gardens and stately homes, and activities for visitors range from golf and horse-racing to river cruises.

Surrey: area layout
Guildford, county hub and home to the University of Surrey, is around 30 miles southwest of central London. A bustling modern town, it retains mementoes of its past including a 12th-century castle tower and 16th-century Guildhall.

Communities like Epsom and Kingston upon Thames merge seamlessly with the capital's southwestern suburbs.

The pretty River Wey flows through Guildford and on through Surrey to meet the River Thames near Shepperton, on the outskirts of London.

The North Downs run east to west across the county, with the Surrey Hills to the south. For panoramic views, climb the 18th-century tower that crowns Leith Hill, or to the top of Box Hill in the North Downs.

Things to see and do in Surrey
Surrey is home to famed racecourses at Kempton Park, Epsom Downs and Sandown Park, which host major horse-racing meetings like the Investec Derby Festival.

The focus is on another kind of racing at Brooklands Museum, where exhibits include vintage racing cars and historic aircraft, including one of the last supersonic Concorde airliners.

Discover Surrey's royal heritage at Hampton Court Palace near Kingston upon Thames, 16th-century home of Henry VIII, with its sumptuous Great Hall and a fine collection of paintings by masters like Canaletto and Holbein.

Near Guildford, Loseley Park is a gracious Elizabethan mansion surrounded by gorgeous rose gardens, filled with antiques, artworks and royal relics like George IV's coronation chair.

Hotels in Surrey
Places to stay in Surrey include full service and no-frills hotels with good transport links to central London and London Heathrow Airport (LHR), in the county’s towns and on the fringes of the capital.

You’ll also find countryside hotels and traditional inns in rural areas and beside the River Thames.

The main A3 road is Surrey's principal link to London, connecting with the capital's M25 orbital motorway. London Heathrow Airport (LHR) and London Gatwick Airport (LGW) are less than an hour's drive from anywhere in the county.

Guildford is around an hour from central London by road or rail, and around 30 minutes’ drive from Heathrow or Gatwick.

If you want to stay nearer the heart of London but close to top Surrey attractions like Hampton Court Palace, Epsom Downs Racecourse and RHS Wisley, you can find hotels that cater to business and leisure travellers in Epsom Downs, Shepperton and Kingston upon Thames.

Eating Out in Surrey
Discriminating diners will find plenty to please within easy reach of Surrey's main towns. Locally sourced pasture-fed beef, home-bred pork, lamb and free-range chicken appear on many menus, and a traditional English Sunday roast is a lunchtime experience that's hard to beat.

Eat al fresco at gastropubs beside the River Thames in places like Weybridge, East Molesey and Kingston Upon Thames.

There's an abundance of fine-dining establishments in towns such as Ripley, Bagshot and Horsham, where celebrated chefs present tasting menus to satisfy even the choosiest gourmet palate.

At the other end of the culinary spectrum, there are independent restaurants serving affordable international cuisine in every Surrey town. South Asian, Chinese and Italian eateries predominate.

For those with less time to spare, familiar chain restaurants provide everything from burgers and chicken to pizza and sushi.

And to drink? Surrey’s craft ales have a long and honourable pedigree going back centuries, and vineyards on the chalk slopes of the Surrey Hills and the South Downs produce fine sparkling and still wines.

The chef recommends...

  • Tangy cheeses from Norbury Blue. You'll find them on the menu at restaurants and inns all over Surrey.
  • A tasting tour and dinner at Denbies Wine Estate, where you’ll discover the delights of Surrey's red, rosé, white and sparkling wines.
  • A visit to the Hog's Back Brewery to sample traditional English ales and new-style craft beers like golden-blonde Surrey Nirvana.

Shopping in Surrey
Surrey is so close to the world-class shopping in London that many locals on a retail spree head for the big city.

Westfield London, 15 minutes from Kingston upon Thames and 30 minutes from Guildford, groups nearly 400 upscale shops in one huge complex.

Shopping centres like Guildford's Friary and the Bentall Centre in Kingston upon Thames house mainstream brands like Boss, Zara and Armani.

Lovers of antiques and collectables can hunt for fine porcelain, glassware, silver and vintage jewellery at antiques fairs all over Surrey. Specialist centres group numerous dealers under one roof in places like Kingston upon Thames and Hampton Court.

Where to buy antiques in Surrey

  • With more than 100 resident dealers, Kingston Antiques Market attracts collectors from across the world. Specialities include gold, silver, vintage jewellery and timepieces.
  • Discriminating buyers will discover fine art, ceramics, chinoiserie and Georgian furniture at Farnham’s small but select Antiques Warehouse gallery.
  • Silverware, china, glass, paintings and scientific instruments are among the treasures at the Hampton Court Emporium.
  • Up to 700 vendors sell everything from vintage fashion to clocks, paintings and pottery at the fortnightly Sunbury Antiques Market.

Culture & Nightlife in Surrey
Lovers of art and literature will find much to inspire them in Surrey, and there's plenty to keep theatre, rock and dance fans happy too.

You can admire paintings by Old Masters like Rembrandt and Caravaggio at Hampton Court Palace's Cumberland Gallery.

Work by 20th-century British artists like Eduardo Paolozzi and Jacob Epstein is on show at The Lightbox in Guildford, home of the Ingram Collection of Modern Art.

Fans of vintage science fiction should visit Woking, where H.G. Wells set the opening of his novel “The War of the Worlds”. Michael Condron's gleaming, seven-metre “Martian Tripod” sculpture looms spookily over the town centre, and a themed walking route takes you to where the alien invaders land in Wells's original tale.

Surrey clubbers head for Kingston upon Thames for nights out at big, glitzy venues like Viper Rooms, Hippodrome and Pryzm, where DJs play club classics and new tunes to a lively crowd.

If you're looking for a laugh, you'll find stand-up comedy at venues like Kingston’s Crack Comedy and The Fighting Cocks.

In Guildford, G Live hosts musicians, singers and actors ranging from The Stranglers to Simon Callow and Jason Donovan.

On summer evenings, Surrey racecourses like Kempton Park and Epsom Downs combine racing with shows by rock stars like Bryan Adams, Dizzee Rascal and Kaiser Chiefs.

Visiting Surrey with a Family

At Brooklands Museum in Weybridge, there’s a collection of classic cars, buses and aircraft, and you can enjoy vintage car rides around the former Brooklands Race Track.

At Lingfield’s British Wildlife Centre families can get close to creatures that city kids rarely see, like otters, red squirrels, deer and badgers.

Friendly South American beasts of burden lead you on a stroll through peaceful countryside at Surrey Hills Llamas in Hambledon, pausing for a picnic on the way.

At Birdworld in Farnham you'll encounter parrots, pelicans and penguins, as well as slightly scarier crocodiles, snakes and piranhas.

Latest Guildford, Surrey Hotel Reviews


Great hotel
By cambee
Stayed here for the weekend for a wedding nearby. The hotel is very pleasant and clean, the room was lovely and the car parking more than adequate. Breakfast was of a high quality. I would [More] particularly like to mention the staff on reception who were so helpful in arranging an earlier check in to our rooms so that we had time to change for the wedding. Highly recommend this hotel [Less]
Great for an overnight stay
By travelling mom
We enjoyed our overnight stay, but was very disappointed that our room, which was supposed to be for two, had only one bed and a fold out chair (yes chair not sofa) for the second sleeping place. As [More] two adults, this was uncomfortable for the person sleeping in the chair. The room itself was clean, as was the attentiveness of staff and appointments of the hotel, but the pizza we ordered to eat at the bar was awful. [Less]
A nice hotel but watch the parking charge....
By JSB10
Whilst the Gatwick Worth Holiday Inn is a good all-round hotel the £10 parking charge is very disappointing. Unlike hotels in a city centre which may charge for parking this hotel is situated in a [More] rural location with plentiful parking. Its location means that arrival by other means is unlikely so the charge feels a little like opportunism on behalf of the management. The receptionist informed me that this is a common customer complaint. [Less]
Comfortable London stay
By Monksy11
Good location, good room, good value. Our second visit here and would definitely stay again. [Less]
Staff are Excellent
By MJD976
The staff and management are Excellent. Fantastic customer service and the new Breakfast menu was outstanding . Will definitely use this hotel when in London again . [Less]
Great friendly staff but not friendly location
By Davep
Once inside the hotel the staff, facilities and room were great and the staff were very friendly. This was welcome as the area outside the hotel did not feel friendly! [Less]
Very helpful staff in the morning
By Danny
I just came to London to see old friends and the location of the hotel is actually not that bad with the bus. The room was clean but in the night you had kind fireworks and during the day some road [More] works so you could barely open the window. But on the other hand it's a lovely hotel with great stuff. As I mentioned before one of the girls at reception and in the breakfast (I think Italian lady) was so helpful when we asked for gluten free breakfast. That's what is called customer service. Well done. [Less]
Up To Expected Standard
By Codsallkendo
I traveled for business and stayed in Ealing. The hotel was very good and relaxing and I enjoyed the usual high standards from a Holiday Inn. The only thing that was inconvenient was the 1.2 mile [More] walk to Ealing Broadway Tube Station. [Less]
Nice
By Whhh
Rooms are clean. The area is well served, there is even a next door with a cool attendant. [Less]
