Home from a wonderful trip to the UK and Italy. I’ll be sharing my guides to each city and town we visited over the next week or so. First stop on the itinerary: Surrey– where we celebrated a magical wedding of two great friends. Surrey is located about an hour from London in the south east side of England. Known for its beautiful gardens, road biking, hikes and quaint local pubs, we had ourselves a grand old-time. We rented a house originally built in 1901 located in Holmbury St. Mary and watched our friends say “I do” at All Saints’ Church (foundations were laid in the 12th century!). I’m very sad to report that this British Accent Spray carried by the Father of the bride did not work its magic. Gutted.
Places to eat and drink from the bride & groom:
Very secluded local pub. Good for plotting or conspiring against the government.
Quite near the train station. Great place to wet your whistle.
This former coachhouse is around 20 minutes from Ockham.
83 The Street
West Horsely, Surrey
An old Georgian pub, featured in AA’s Britain’s Best Pubs.
