Surrey is the perfect place for over 55s who enjoy getting out and making the most of the countryside. The Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty extends over 160 square miles taking in Box Hill and Leith Hill and providing opportunities for walking, cycling or riding. If you enjoy visiting historic houses and landscape gardens, three of Surrey's finest venues are Ham House on the banks of the River Thames, Painshill Park in Cobham and the RHS Garden at Wisley.
From Godalming's quaint shopping streets and Cranleigh's village charm to the bustling streets of Kingston-upon-Thames, Surrey is a shoppers' paradise. Living in Surrey, you'll never be short of cultural pursuits. Guildford's Yvonne Arnaud Theatre and G-Live are just two of many venues in the county. Sports facilities are also outstanding - Surrey has more golf courses in the 'Top 100' than any other county and athletes, in the run-up to the 2012 Olympics, trained at Surrey Sports Park in Guildford. Surrey has four thriving race courses which host events - Sandown Park, Epsom, Kempton Park and Lingfield.
Beechcroft properties are ideal for those who want to 'lock up and leave' and Surrey is one of the best placed counties for travel. The A3, M25, M3 and M23 cross the county and link with the national motorway network - and Surrey is home to both Gatwick and Heathrow airports. There are excellent rail links into London and to Portsmouth, where its possible to catch a cross-channel ferry.
