Living in Surrey

Welcome to Surrey

Just a short distance from London but a million miles from the capital's hustle and bustle, Surrey is a beautiful county nestled in the south-east of England and a great place to work and live.

With access to major arterial road routes (including the M25, M3 and M23), frequent rail services to central London and close proximity to Heathrow and Gatwick airports, Surrey is easily accessible. The rolling hills, market towns and excellent attractions mean there is plenty to see and do.

There’s an activity to suit every age from museums and gardens to high octane trips to theme parks, race tracks and treetop obstacle courses. Or you can explore the most wooded county in England on some of the most extensive footpath networks in the country.

For road cyclists, the 2012 Olympic Cycle route up Box Hill is a must, and has helped make Surrey a key destination for the sport, with the Prudential Ride London taking place here every year.

We're a significant, well-regarded and ambitious county council, with four main area offices in some of our largest towns: Leatherhead, Redhill, Woking, and Guildford.
