History and Heritage in Surrey

Surrey is a treasure trove of history waiting to be discovered.

Visit Stane Street, the Roman Road visible at Mickleham, following part of the A24 or walk to the iron age fort at Holmbury Hill. Go back in time to the signing of the great charter, the Magna Carta at Runnymede in 1215 or picnic amongst the early English monastic ruins at Waverley Abbey.

For something a little more recent discover the Rural Life Centre, a museum of village life, trades and crafts. Enjoy a walk around the glorious 18th century gardens of Painshill or sit in Concorde at Brooklands Museum.

The Surrey History Centre holds archives and records relating to all aspect of the history of Surrey and is a valuable resource for researching your family history.
