Surrey Photo Gallery

Surrey is located west of London with interesting towns, historic artifacts, and rolling hills. Well-connected by trains from London, there are many day trip options worth visiting.


Guildford is a good pit stop while exploring Surrey's historic attractions. It has a beautiful High Street and a castle. Getting here is also easy, with trains from London Waterloo taking about 40 minutes only, with the train station just across the river from the main attractions.

Waverley Abbey is the first Cistercian monastery in the country. Founded in 1128 by French monks, the monastery was rebuilt in the 13th century and continued to grow. By the 16th century, the Dissolution forced the abbey to be dismantled.

Kingston upon Thames is located upstream from London with a nice riverside. It was a medieval market town thanks to its bridge across the Thames that was completed in the 12th century, although the current one was built in the early 19th.

Brooklands Museum sits on a former aircraft manufacturing site that saw nearly 19,000 British-made planes take to the skies. A number of historic aircraft are on display and even allow access to their interiors, such as the Concorde, VC10, and BAC 1-11. Special thanks to the many knowledgeable volunteers who made the visit exceptional.

In the 1960s, a few private bus owners with preserved vehicles came together to form the London Bus Preservation Group, and bought a former aircraft factory in Cobham to store their buses and exhibit them in a museum. The building's condition deteriorated and Brooklands Museum kindly offered a large plot of vacant land for a new museum, which opened in 2011.
