Getting to and around Surrey
Getting to and around Surrey could not be easier. London’s Heathrow and Gatwick Airports are on our borders and within 30 minutes of most parts of Surrey via a variety of modes of transport. Surrey can also be reached in approximately one hour from two of the UK’s major ferry ports, Portsmouth to the south west and Dover to the south east.
Our extensive road network includes much of the M25 (London Orbital), M3 (Southampton to London) and M23 (Brighton to London) motorways as well as many other major roads including the A3 (Portsmouth to London) and A30 (Cornwall to London). All of the county’s major towns are easily accessed from the motorways and major roads and are connected to each other by a network of smaller ‘A’ roads, many of these are dual carriageways capable of handling significant traffic.

Public Transport provision in Surrey is excellent. The extensive rail network is one of the busiest in the UK and connects the county’s major towns, and many of the rural areas, to one another and the rest of the UK. Nearly all of our stations are within one hour of central London and around two and a half hours from the Olympic and Paralympic Sailing venue at Weymouth.
Surrey’s bus network carries over 29 million passengers a year and connects all of the major towns as well as the many rural areas which make up Surrey. Buses also run from Surrey into the neighbouring counties of Kent, Hampshire, East and West Sussex and of course London.
