Travel Guide: Surrey, UK

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:

THE STEPHAN LANGTON INN

Friday Road
Abington

Very secluded local pub. Good for plotting or conspiring against the government.

THE PLOUGH

Orestan Lane,
Effingham

Quite near the train station. Great place to wet your whistle.

THE ABINGER HATCH

Abinger Hills
Dorking, Surrey

This former coachhouse is around 20 minutes from Ockham.

KING WILLIAM IV PUB

83 The Street
West Horsely, Surrey

An old Georgian pub, featured in AA’s Britain’s Best Pubs.

THE BLACK SWAN PUB

The website promises an ‘inventive British menu using some of the best in fresh local & seasonal produce.’

Next stop: London!
