I have been making more of an effort to explore places that are close to us because you don’t need to go abroad to find amazing places and different days out. There are so many places that could be explored right under your nose. I have been to a couple of places in Surrey and there are so many more places that I have not yet investigated but they will be on my to-do list.

I have so many other places I want to see in this place because I haven’t seen much of this place which is such a shame because it is within an hour of where I live. I will have to make a list of all the places I want to explore so that I can visit them over the summer this year.

Painshill Park

The park is inspired by the Renaissance art that Hamilton had on is travels around Europe; he made some amazing discoveries and has recreated them within the park. There is a Turkish tent, Chinese bridge, ruined abbey, gothic temple and loads more to find within this park. It makes a very interesting photography trip out, as there are all these unusual things that you can take pictures of. Although, if you wanted a relaxing day trip, then this can also be successful with the lovely tea room that they have available there where you can buy lunch and a variety of cakes. Take in the view and have a wander around these grounds.

Chessington World of Adventure

If you are after a day of more fun and adventure then why not have a day out at Chessington. There are roller coasters and animals that will keep you occupied throughout the day. I remember having so much fun when I went here, even as someone who isn’t particularly a rollercoaster fan managed to go onto all of the rides. It looks like it has changed a lot since I went there last, they even have a Gruffalo ride for children, where was that when I went?!

Wisley Garden

Is a lovely garden that I have been to many times, mainly for the tea room and their food because it’s so yummy. I love taking photos at this place and there is never a shortage of different types of flowers and the place is huge so you spend your whole day wandering around.

Thorpe Park

Another rollercoaster park if you are a lover of those types of attractions this park won’t disappoint. There are so many different roller coasters. I remember when I went there with my friend for her birthday and we just went around on the rapids to get as wet as we probably could which was so much fun.

Have you explored any of these places?
