Cheap Accommodation in Surrey
In Surrey’s larger towns such as Guildford, Dorking, Reigate and Farnham you’ll find a good choice of chain hotels offering cheap bed and breakfast accommodation that comes with a wealth of history and countryside on the doorstep. Some more luxurious establishments have a spa or pool.
The towns of Surrey
Stay in a budget B&B in the county’s capital, Guildford. This pretty town is dominated by its castle ruins and the River Wey. A self-guided town tour takes in Guildford’s medieval heritage as well as the local museum and the workhouse. Day trips can easily be made from your budget accommodation to attractions like Brooklands Museum, Chilworth Mills and the Watts Gallery.
Sitting near Box Hill and the start of the Deepdene Walking Trail, the cheap hotels and B&B accommodation of Dorking also let you enjoy the town’s quaint centre and wealth of arts, craft and antique shops. When you book a budget B&B in Reigate you can sleep peacefully in a comfortable bed before heading underground at the mysterious Reigate caves.
The old coaching town of Farnham is full of historic buildings and unique shopping opportunities. Romantic bed and breakfast accommodation can be found in coaching inns that are centuries old or B&Bs housed in elegant Georgian townhouses.
Activities for the whole family
Enjoy something a little different as you enjoy the outdoor life with a tranquil riverside walk at Runnymede where King John put his seal to the Magna Carta in 1215, a wine-tasting tour of the Denbies Wine Estate near Dorking or a llama trek in the Surrey Hills at Hambledon. For countryside walks, cycle trails and fantastic views pack a picnic and spend a day at Box Hill on the Surrey North Downs. There is a good choice of family-run B&Bs, cheap hotels and pub accommodation offering bed and breakfast near all of these activities.
For lovers of history and architecture, Surrey has many stately homes to visit including Clandon Park where you can take a unique visit into the fire-ravaged interior of this once beautiful house. The landscaped gardens of Polesden Lacey, the farms of Loseley Park and Leith Hill Place, home to the Wedgewood family, each have something different to offer.
Step further back in time with visits to the atmospheric ruins of Waverley Abbey, Newark Priory and Guildford Castle. Start your historic day out with a home-cooked breakfast of local produce in your comfortable and cheap B&B or hotel accommodation.
Your children are not forgotten in Surrey. Two of Britain’s largest theme parks, Thorpe Park and Chessington World of Adventure, provide a whole day of fun and both are near a range of cheap hotels including well-known chain names that guarantee a comfortable bed and a tasty breakfast. Children and adults alike can take to the treetops at Go Ape Alice Holt while the whole family will enjoy a leisurely boat trip on the River Wey from the Dapdune Wharf at Guildford.
