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.

Nights at the theatre in Surrey

  • Yvonne Arnaud Theatre Guildford presents new work by established and up-and-coming playwrights, classical and contemporary drama, opera and ballet.
  • Visit Kingston's Rose Theatre for light and serious drama, live jazz and comedy.
  • Epsom Playhouse hosts classical music performed by Epsom Symphony Orchestra, jazz, musicals, comedy and wrestling.
  • Dance, comedy, tribute acts, theatre and solo shows are all on the bill at Redhill’s Harlequin Theatre.

Visiting Surrey with a Family
Keeping your family entertained in Surrey is easy, with activities and attractions that include stately homes and palaces, museums and outdoor play areas.

Children can have fun exploring the famous hedge maze at Hampton Court Palace, where you’ll also find free history trails and 'Time Explorer' challenges that can be downloaded as apps for mobile devices.

At Farnham’s Rural Life Centre kids can meet lambs and donkeys, explore hands-on exhibits such as a Victorian laundry, and ride on the Old Kiln Light Railway’s miniature engines and carriages.

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 Surrey Hotel Reviews


Great stay.
By Mike
Friendly attentive staff. Made to feel welcome as if I was coming into someone else's home. 5 stars. [Less]
First Class Service
By Brizo
Using the Wandsworth hotel as a base for the ATP Tennis and can recommend it to anyone. During our stay the staff were attentive, helpful without being intrusive. Our room was available early and the [More] team throughout the hotel - reception, housekeeping, waiting staff etc - were approachable and courteous and treated me and my daughter as friends rather than customers. I’d certainly return when next in London and hope to see the staff again and any new guests. [Less]
Another nice stay
By TEH-us
I frequently stay at this HI Express and have always found its staff to be well trained, friendly and helpful. It is a typical Express, but the staff sets it apart. Convenient to the nearby train [More] station (not the tube) and a handy "Convenience Store" is adjacent. [Less]
Reception
By Steve
Georgania at the checkin always welcomes us with a friendly and positive attitude.. This lady is extremely capable and can help with about just any issue to make things happen. [Less]
Two night stay, have to say was good :- )
By Gabble
Enjoyed my first leisure stay at the Stratford City Staybridge Suite. I usually stay here for business purposes, but this time I brought my wife as I thought she'd enjoy the Westfield Shopping [More] Centre. It was her birthday during this stay. The hotel staff were very responsive and friendly. [Less]
Good service
By mtay007
Breakfast was great and there was a wide selection to choose from. The reception staff were helpful and responded to my requests promptly. Housekeeping needs improvement. I usually leave my room [More] in the day and only return at night, and when I return I find my room in pitch darkness on several nights, which I feel very uncomfortable with. Also, there are towels which I've deliberately left on the floor because they are already dirtied, but I realised it was folded and placed beside the bathroom sink as though they've been changed. [Less]
Great location to the O2 Arena
By TennisGirl
Affordable and comfy, quiet location. Near to Canning Town station so easy to get to the O2. Glad bacon is back on the menu for breakfast. Would be nice if an evening meal/light snack option was [More] available. [Less]
Excellent service and very professional staff
By Danny Boy
I would not hesitate in staying here again. Everything about my stay was perfect, especially the staff who were friendly, greeted me warmly and exceeded my expectations of hospitality. [Less]
Excellent one nighter
By keysie
Just needed a place for a one night stay near the O2 with good tube connections - for this, this hotel cannot be faulted! Friendly and attentive staff throughout our stay greeted as an IHG rewards [More] customer which was unexpected. Was a little sceptical when i saw the busy road outside the hotel expecting noise etc but the room was well isolated against the noise and was really comfy and clean [Less]
