Surrey is packed with a great range of entertainment venues, most of them located in or around the county's historic towns such as Guildford and Woking. The Camberley Theatre in Camberley, just a short drive from Guildford and Kingston-upon-Thames, is an exciting and innovative venue for the performing arts scene. If you're in the area, based at a Surrey hotel or guesthouse, or merely passing through, the theatre is certainly worth a visit.
Surrey Hotels for Camberley Theatre and Other Local Attractions
A Surrey hotel such as the Percy Arms in Guildford or the Sir Douglas Haig in Leatherhead will be the perfect base for getting in to Camberley for the day and exploring what's on offer, including its outstanding theatre. The town itself has an interesting history, with one of the local landmarks - a brick tower - dating back to the 18th Century and known as the Obelisk. Nearby Bagshot Heath was a haunt of notorious highwaymen and in medieval times this whole area was part of Windsor Forest. The drama continues into the 21st Century with regular productions of new and classic plays being staged in Camberley Theatre, managed by Surrey Heath Borough Council.
