Every year tens of thousands of people visit Surrey, and it’s no surprise as to why so many people choose our county.Surrey has an abundance of green spaces, outdoor sports and leisure activities to keep the family busy. There are events and festivals all year round, with something to suit everyone’s tastes. It’s no wonder why many people pack up and choose to relocate here.
Surrey usually finds one of its towns or villages in various UK’s ‘best places to live’ surveys and lists. Because of its proximity to London, a high influx of people moves to Surrey in the hope of a better quality of life with the benefits of being close to the capital. Surrey has excellent transport systems into London as well as other major cities in Southern England.
Five Things to do in Surrey this Winter –
The WH Cox team are fortunate to call Surrey our home, and we’ve put together our top picks for things to do in Surrey this winter. If you’re planning on visiting or Surrey is already your home, we hope that there’s something here that you’ll enjoy bringing the year to a close.
Rebus – Long Shadows: if you like Ian Rankin’s blend of contemporary detective fiction, you’ll want to book up for this. Ian’s famous Rebus novels are amongst the best modern series around. The award-winning playwright Rona Munro is teaming up with Rankin to bring detective Rebus to the stage at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre in Guildford, from the 19th to the 24th of November.
Ascot Carriages: ever wanted to enjoy some of Surrey’s green spaces and countryside without going on a walking tour. Well, we have something that might interest you. You can take the whole family or your better half on one of many horse-drawn carriages. There are various tour packages available, but it is weather permitting.
Hampton Court Palace Ice Rink: many cities around the UK host seasonal winter ice rinks. However, none of them can boast the stunning backdrop of Hampton Court Palace. From the 23rd of November through to the 6rg of January, you can enjoy this sizeable outdoor ice rink. You can have a refreshment at the Ice Rink Café & Bar to warm up or relax while the family cut the ice.
Dorking Christmas Festival 2018: we couldn’t leave out a Christmas event from our list without being accused of being humbugs. We love Christmas, and this year our top pick for festive occasions in the Dorking Christmas Festival with Christmas Lights Switch-On. Dorking’s best eateries and shops are all in on the act, in addition to a Christmas fair where you can buy artisan and traditional gifts. Who knows – Santa may even make an appearance.
TEDx Woking: The Ted Talks are world-famous and feature some of the broadest subjects at events worldwide. This year, Woking hosts the TEDx ‘Discovery’ speaking event at the Living Planet Centre. It’s a unique event that promises to raise some potentially ground-breaking topics and discuss points.
