Welcome to Surrey
Camping in Surrey offers the best of the British countryside in an ideal location for those looking to get away from the city for a relaxing holiday, or for those looking to enjoy the nature and wildlife whilst still close to the country’s capital. Surrey is just south west of London and has a strong rail network, giving you the ability to mix a city and country break into one and make the best of both worlds.
At the core of this county are the Surrey Hills of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Covering one third of the county, the AONB is designated to preserve the natural landscape and makes the perfect place for a long walk or bike ride to take in as much of the view as possible. If you prefer a faster pace and a racing heart, Thorpe Park gives you all this and more with thrill-seeking rides and terrifying coasters designed to give you an adrenaline buzz.
Why you should use our YHA campsites in Surrey:
- Strong rail connections to London
- Beautiful countryside locations
- Rambling and cycling routes for all skill levels
- Great public transport network
