Tour opulent Loseley Park
One of England's best preserved manor houses is just 35 minutes by train from Guildford in Surrey. Grade I listed Loseley Park dates back the 16th century, and remains virtually unchanged and is still owned by the More-Molyneux family after more than 500 years. Today visitors can enjoy its elegant furnishings, grand Drawing Room and Loseley's botanical, flower and walled gardens.
Go for Guildford
Loseley is close to Surrey's scenic county town, Guildford. Start your day at the town's eponymous Castle, built shortly after the invasion by William the Conqueror almost 1,000 years ago. Today the old keep offers panoramic views over the town, while the former moat is now a delightful circular garden. G Live is Guildford's home for live music, theatre, comedy, dance and classical performances, and visitors can embark at Dapdune Wharf for a relaxing boat trip along the River Wey.
The Art of London
In under an hour's drive from Loseley Park, you can be on London's South Bank, the UK capital's epicentre of art. Head for the Tate Gallery, home to world-renowned modern and contemporary art. Don't miss the new extension, which offers stunning vistas across London from its 10th-storey viewing gallery. Take the short walk east to Borough to sample one of London's most famous food markets.
