Beautiful Surrey may be just an hour away from London city, but this green and ancient county couldn't feel further away from stressful urban life. As the leafiest county in England, it boasts vast green and open spaces, ancient woodlands and hundreds of miles of public pathways and bridleways to explore. See the Surrey Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, cycle through Holmbury Hills and wonder at the geological curiosity of The Devil's Punchbowl. Explore picture-perfect villages, royal palaces, landscaped gardens and castle ruins and take the family to Go Ape, Sandown or Brooklands Museum. You'll also find a diverse and high-quality dining scene to boot, with some excellent Italian restaurants in Surrey just waiting to serve you a meal to remember.
