Under $100 / Europe

Surrey, England, is the most wooded county in England and proud of it. It’s a great place to take a hike and experience the magnificent English countryside. It’s close enough to London that it’s possible for people to take a daytrip away and escape the city.

 

Like most counties in England, there are castles to explore. In Surrey, there is Guildford and Farnham. Both have $5 entry fees that include a self-guided tour through the castle and a piece of Surrey’s history.

After spending some time learning the rich history of Surrey, take the afternoon to partake in some fun activities at the Guildford Spectrum. This structure houses an indoor pool complex, Olympic-sized ice skating rink and bowling alleys. Plan to spend around $30–40 depending on what activities you decide to do.

Unwind by strolling through some of Surrey’s most outstanding natural areas. The Claremont Landscape Garden is one of the earliest surviving gardens from the English Landscape Garden design. It’s registered as a historic park and includes a beautiful lake.

End the day with a delicious dinner around a fire. This restaurant is the 2017 winner of Pub of the Year at the Surrey Life Food & Drink Awards. Order some fantastic comfort food along with a red or white wine and curl up in front of a fire. For cold winter nights, this pub is a great escape from the cold, unforgiving winds. It’s also a great place to bring a group of people to laugh and reminisce over the day’s adventures.
