Our guide to luxury Surrey holidays

A skip and a jump from London, yet worlds away from the rush of the capital, Surrey is a sylvan county where ancient history and a thriving cultural scene converge. Here's the Unique guide to luxury Surrey holidays.

The country is calling. Here, the heather-strewn Surrey Hills meet Guildford’s historic marketplace, and Hampton Court Palace vies for attention with genre-defining art at Watts Gallery, where the works of 'England's Michelangelo' sit alongside quirky oil paint animalia. Wrapped up in Southern charm and just an hour from London, it’s not hard to see why Surrey appeals to those looking for a taste of rural-luxe living. Spend mornings following in the footsteps of monarchs, afternoons floating through the willow trees of the Godalming Navigation, and evenings sipping flasks of mulled cider planning tomorrow's summit of Box Hill.


Despite its diminutive size, this pocket-size corner of England packs a punch. In our guide to luxury Surrey holidays, we’ve covered every corner of this wooded county, including all the best things to see, do, and eat. Think canal-side picnics, 100-year-old avenues of maples, and delis-turned-cookery schools that teach everything from cheese-making to pudding prep. After days of adventure, return to your luxury self-catering home where unwinding comes in the form of: glass-like swimming pools, yoga studios for sun salutations, reading nooks perched atop crayfish ponds, and sunken hot tubs surrounded by acres of evergreens.
