You can find the county of Surrey just south of London, and it is also actually part of the Greater London area. This proximity makes it a great destination for both local weekenders and tourists also visiting London. You can enjoy a quiet day touring green spaces such as Royal Horticultural Society Garden Wisley, or historical sites such as the well-preserved Hampton Court Palace.
Surrey is also home to many rivers and canals that are still widely used today, including River Wey and River Thames. There are commercial establishments set along these waterways such as riverside pubs where you can enjoy a nice drink. So why not plan a stay and enjoy the county’s waterways up close?
