Best Western have 3 hotels in Surrey
A Surrey hotel places you in the heart of leafy green suburbia, home to the large historical towns of Guildford and Walton-On-Thames, which nestle in amongst lush countryside, rolling hillsides and quaint little villages. As the most wooded county in England, it is easy to forget the county is situated only a stone's throw from neighbouring London boroughs.
Town and city breaks in Surrey
Visit Weybridge and see the Brooklands Museum for motoring and aviation exhibits, before heading to the adjacent Mercedes-Benz World to test your mettle in an AVG on the racing circuit. In west Surrey, the world-famous Farnborough Airshow runs biannually. For those who enjoy cultural short breaks a visit to Guildford is essential. Be sure to take in the beautiful Loseley Park and Clandon Park and other historic houses. Guildford Castle and its surrounding gardens are a popular attraction. As well as being perfect for seeing local sights, the town is also known for its impressive nightlife. For arts in the county, head straight from your hotel in Surrey to museum and gallery The Lightbox in Woking.
Holidays in the Surrey countryside
There's so much countryside to see in Surrey, but particularly noteworthy is the North Downs Way National Trail, which extends for over 150 miles from Farnham to Canterbury. Scale Box Hill, famously admired by Jane Austen in Emma, and pass the country's largest vineyard Denbies. Get even closer to the flora and fauna at the British Wildlife Centre in Lingfield. For a truly unique piece of scenery, the Devil's Punch Bowl near Hindhead cannot be outdone. Owned by the National Trust, the natural amphitheatre formed in the landscape over time due to water erosion, though the imaginative local myths would have you believe otherwise. Ramble across the Hindhead Commons amongst purple heathers, long-horned cattle and wild ponies.
Attractions in Surrey
For a true taste of the home counties during your UK break, visit one of the many farmers markets scattered across Surrey. The mesmerising Sculpture Park in Churt, full of weird and wonderful artwork, is an outdoor exhibition not to be missed. Watts Gallery in Guildford has recently reopened after a major restoration, and is home to the works of prominent Victorian artist G. F. Watts. For thrills and family fun, Thorpe Park is ideally located in north Surrey in Chertsey, or in Cobham you can find picturesque Painshill Park, an 18th century landscape garden full of hidden treasures.
