SURREY

 

LOCATION

Surrey, England

DATE

2021

 

DESCRIPTION

Discover the gorgeous English countryside of Surrey, just outside of London.

 

This is the first in a new series of short films showing off weekend breaks around the UK.

 

The silver lining of this last year is that it's encouraged me to explore more of my own backyard, whilst the borders for travellling are shut.

 

Gradually I'll be showing off more "staycations" around the country, but I thought what better to start off than by showing what's right on my front door, just outside of Redhill, Surrey where I live.

 

The three walks shown are:

  • Redhill - Gatton Park - Reigate Hill - Colley Hill

  • Dorking - Stepping Stones - Box Hill - Northdowns Way to Colley Hill - down to Reigate

  • Dorking - Greensand Way via Brockham, Betworth to Reigate
