As Surrey is a large and highly-populated region, governance is largely devolved to a number of borough councils, but with some responsibilities remaining in the hands of Surrey County Council. That means that council tax rates will vary depending on which district of Surrey you choose to live in.
The local area
Surrey is, without doubt, one of England’s most desirable regions. Conveniently close to the capital, the county retains its rural charms and offers its residents a lifestyle-enhancing balance of urban amenities and open countryside. Many of the area’s settlements date back to Roman times, including Kingston upon Thames and Ewell, a history that is furthered through the remains of several iron age hillforts in the area. Today, Surrey is a well-connected and thriving part of the country, with attractions including Hampton Court palace and Thorpe Park Resort.
Being as close to the capital as it is, Surrey is well served for both public and private transportation. There’s a vast local rail network with regular services into London, while the city’s orbital M25 motorway cuts through the county east to west, as the A24 and M23 branch through it north to south, making it relatively straight forward to get to local towns like Godalming, Redhill, Staines, Walton-on-Thames, Reigate and Weybridge. The nearest airports to Surrey are Gatwick Airport or Heathrow Airport, both lying immediately outside the county’s borders at opposite ends.
You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to primary and secondary schools, with some of the country’s highest regarded private and state institutions found in the area. For higher educational needs, the University of Surrey can be found in Guildford.
