Shopping Breaks in Surrey
If you are looking for a shopping break, look no further than Surrey. With a range of high street stores, to independents, shopping centres to historic lanes, Surrey has it all.
Guildford at the centre of the county is famous for its cobbled High Street which is lined with well known brands. Radiating out from the High Street are pretty lanes with high end boutique stores and independents where you can treat yourself to something special. Within the town are three shopping malls providing yet more brands, but this time all under one roof. Whilst you visit you can discover the Castle, one of Surrey's only castle's, located just off the High Street, or visit Guildford House Gallery which displays every changing exhibitions within one of the most historic houses in town, dating from around 1666.
Kingston upon Thames at the northern end of the county in addition to lots of large big brands has two large department stores. Bentalls has been in Kingston for around 130 years and offers everything, almost including the kitchen sink! The popular John Lewis is just across the road and also provides visitors with a huge range of departments to keep you busy for several hours at a time. Combine your day in Kingston with lunch overlooking the River Thames, or perhaps a production at the Rose Theatre.
Woking town centre has undergone a complete re-development in the last few years and now boasts a central new town square with cafes and restaurants. Next to the square are the towns two shopping malls which offer all the usual high street brands, making Woking a modern and vibrant place to visit.
Surrey is known for its historic market towns with each offering a mix of known big brands but also many independent shopping experiences. Combined with local produce cafes, family run restaurants, and local attractions, the towns of Farnham, Godalming, Reigate, Dorking, and Epsom are certainly worth stopping off for a few hours.
