Surrey Tourist and Visitor Information with links to heritage, nature and tourist attractions, many with brief details of disabled access

Surrey is one of the counties that border Greater London and where London meets the green countryside, with popular beauty spots such as Box Hill, Leith Hill, Newlands Corner and Frensham Ponds. Surrey is a rural county, with the North Downs enticing many walkers and cyclists to its footpaths, trails and bridleways. There are of course the large towns such as Guildford and Woking but it also has some pretty rural villages.
