About Surrey

In the South-East of England lies the County of Surrey. Although, due to boundary changes much of Northern Surrey has now been dissolved into Greater London. In the county town of Guildford you can explore its wealth of interesting history and admire its sheer beauty. Local attractions include, Guildford Cathedral set in 20 acres of green parkland, Guildford Castle, which dates back to 1066 and Loseley Park, an outstanding example of Elizabethan architecture built by Sir William More in 1562. Since 1780 the market town of Epsom has held the annual and worldwide famous 'Epsom Derby' horse race which continues to attract many visitors from far and wide.
