Visit Surrey for theme parks to take your breath away, fast racehorses and even faster cars and scenic downs. Village churches, meadow-covered hilltops and woodland in this southeast county have made their way into Hollywood blockbusters like Gladiator and Bridget Jones. Lace up your walking shoes to explore forests, commons and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty hills shaped like punchbowls. Or speed along wooded disused railway lines by bicycle. Feeling parched? Riverside pubs and vineyards are Surrey specialities. On rainy days retreat to Palladian mansions and Henry VIII palaces. Top places to visit in Surrey include Hampton Court Palace, the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew, Leith Hill and the Hogs Back Brewery.
