Leafy Surrey


We parked up at Horsley Campsite for a few days to visit the RHS [Royal Horticultural Society] at Wisley as they had the September flower show on.  Horsley is only about 5 miles from Wisley and the RHS had laid on free buses from Horsley station, well they charge enough at the entrance to make up for it.




Spending a day here hardly does it justice, and really you need to come back  regularly to take it all in and to see it throughout the seasons.

After the show, the next day we had a wander around Guildford.  The local Tourist Information had a leaflet on a heritage walk around the city and was well worth it.  Lots to see.

Lewis Caroll, lived here for a while so there are a few statues to Alice in Wonderland around the place.
