Nestled in the south-west corner of Surrey and sharing its boundaries with West Sussex and Hampshire, the borough of Waverley has everything you need to cater for group travellers.
Historic towns, picture-perfect villages, heather-clad countryside, dense woodlands and rolling hills have combined to create a landscape of literary and artistic associations.
The area has inspired the writings of poets and authors, including Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Lord Alfred Tennyson, while more recently having provided the backdrop to many a Hollywood movie.
In modern day Waverley, you’ll find this area of contrast and variety continues to offer creative inspiration.
For group travellers that like to be in the great outdoors, Waverley has more than 400 miles of footpaths – including sections of long-distance paths, bridleways, ancient trackways, river and canalside paths just waiting to be explored.
A visit to Waverley is a treat for garden lovers too. This is where the famous artist and gardener Gertrude Jekyll designed gardens to complement the houses of the architect Sir Edwin Lutyens.
There’s no doubt that your travellers will work up a healthy appetite when exploring Waverley, so be sure to allow plenty of time for lunch or dinner at one of the many country pubs, town centre hostelries, tea rooms or restaurants.
