Surrey has always been a popular tourist destination, because although Central London is just a short distance away the county is characterised by open, green landscapes and a wealth of attractions. These include some of the top family venues in the country, and many of the best castles and stately homes, royal palaces and traditional villages in the land. There are all sorts of accommodation options to choose from, and two star hotels in Surrey are popular as a flexible and affordable choice.
Surrey 2 Star Hotels for Outdoor Fun
Surrey has some of the best walking country in England, with the Downs in particular seeming to have been especially designed with rambling in mind! The stately homes are often crumbling piles, but many more have been perfectly preserved since Tudor times, when courtiers and merchants based in London lavished their fortunes here. Lots of them are now owned by the National Trust and open to the public. Booking a break in Surrey at one of the county's numerous hotels or guesthouses puts you in the perfect position to explore the cultural and natural treasures of these magical landscapes.
Adventure and Sport from 2 Star Surrey Hotels
Apart from the wealth of heritage, Surrey has numerous entertainment and sporting venues which make the county a magnet for racing fans as well as golfers, clubbers and other outdoors types. Motorsports enthusiasts are particularly well served at the famous Brooklands Museum in the historic town of Weybridge. Here they can see a race in 4D which features the Napier-Railton, and peruse a range of other related exhibits and dioramas. Surrey is perhaps most famous for its renowned racecourses, with the likes of Lingfield, Kempton and Sandown being household names, and a day at the races is always a great option when you're based at a local Surrey hotel or bed and breakfast.
The Rolling Downs from Surrey 2 Star Hotels
Whether you've come to Surrey for a day trip from the capital or are based in one of the many hotels in Surrey you'll have the most wonderful landscapes right on your doorstep. The Mole Valley for example is popular with walkers and attractive towns and villages there such as Dorking are thriving centres of local culture, with strong traditions and bags of rural charm. From the heights of Box Hill you can get a good view of the distant coastline and panoramic scenery stretching south, making it a popular spot for walking and picnicking. Rock up on a Sunday morning (if the weather's good) and you'll be treated to a parade of motorcycles - the hill has been a popular gathering point for the biking community for decades. If you prefer a little more in the way of tranquillity then head to a historic town like Richmond, where red deer run free in the old royal park, now open to the public. Hampton Court presides as it did in Tudor times in East Molesey and makes a great destination for a day out from your Surrey hotel or B&B.
With such a wealth of natural and cultural treasures, Surrey has everything for the visitor. Stay at a two star hotel like the Prince Regent in Chertsey and enjoy Surrey's unrivalled scenery and numerous fabulous attractions in all their glory.
