Surrey is a county in the South East of England, located to the south west of London. Surrey is cited as being the wealthiest county in all of Great Britain. Many of Surrey's inhabitants are from affluent backgrounds.
Surrey is one of the "Home Counties" arranged in a belt around London, but it is not all residential towns for commuters. The county contains some attractive countryside, in particular the rolling chalk hills of the North Downs. There are plenty of woods and rivers to explore, and an extensive network of footpaths and cycle paths. Most of the towns are very attractive, genteel and leafy, with interesting histories and wealthy inhabitants. There is a lot to discover in this compact area southwest of London.
