Surrey is a county in southeastern England; the capital is the city of Guildford. Guildford is an excellent place for shopping in Surrey, as it contains a number of shops and markets. There are also a number of Surrey attractions located in Guildford; for example, visit the Guildford Museum to experience a bit of Surrey culture, and the Guildford Cathedral, constructed in the 20th century. One of the most visited cultural Surrey sights is the Guildford House Gallery, an art gallery located in a 17th century townhouse. When visiting Surrey, though, Guilford isn't the only place you should check out. Head to Box Hill, near Dorking, to take a walk amongst some beautiful scenery, as well as to Devil’s Punchbowl at Hindhead, a natural amphitheater. Those interested in things to do in Surrey that involve the great outdoors can also head to Frensham for some great bird watching and some aquatic activities on the Frensham ponds. If you’re spending more than a weekend in Surrey, you should visit Runnymede meadow, where the Magna Carta was supposed to have been signed in 1215 by King John.
