Location, location, location. With its close vicinity to the capital, beautiful market towns and simply stunning countryside it's no wonder so many people want to live in Surrey. We don't think you'll need any convincing, but here are a few reasons why buying a home in Surrey is a good idea.
Surrey has the most woodland cover of any county in the UK. It has vast areas of open countryside and heath land and the rolling North Downs are covered with footpaths and bridleways and dotted with quaint country pubs. Guildford, the county town, is more like a small, traditional market town and the surrounding towns and villages are 'chocolate box' worthy.
Talk about well connected. There are three major motorways in Surrey including the M25, M3 and M23 as well as the A3, the main road route to the south coast. Rail links transport you to London in well under an hour - 37 minutes from Guildford* - and heading to the beach is easy with a direct rail route to Portsmouth Harbour where you can hop on the ferry to the Isle of White.
Surrey has 53 state schools, many of which are high achieving as well as no less than 41 independent schools, which have noted reputations throughout the UK. There are two universities in Surrey; The University of Surrey is based in Guildford, while Royal Holloway is in Egham and now part of the University of London.
