Clear your head this New Year on a winter walk. Why not enjoy classic views across the landscape garden at Claremont or the winding paths and watery reflections at Winkworth Arboretum? Then warm up with a pot of tea and a slice of cake afterwards.
Discover the peace and tranquility of the winter garden at Polesden Lacey and the snowdrop-lined Lime Walk. From late January to the end of February snowdrops abound at Polesden Lacey and on the hillside slopes of Winkworth Arboretum in Surrey.
Don’t let the weather keep you at home. Polesden Lacey is open daily in January and February, plus we have some top exhibitions open this winter. Find inspiration at Petworth’s exhibition on William Blake’s Sussex, plus portraits by Oliver Messel at Nymans and more.

We're showcasing the quirky machinery and exquisite paintings of Heath Robinson from 20 January - 15 April 2018. In the 1930s, Heath Robinson became known as "The Gadget King", and he is still most widely remembered for his detailed drawings of eccentric, over-complicated contraptions. But he was also a talented painter. Our exhibition reveals the extraordinary breadth of his work.
We've got top spots for cycling, tranquil waterways and plenty of hills to climb across Surrey. Whether you want to picnic lazily or walk for hours, you're sure to find something to enjoy in the countryside we look after in Surrey.
