My addictions are long drives, scenery and good music – the drive to Surrey Hills was definitely able to provide this with its long winding roads and incredible scenery. I have always heard good things about the area but never really took the time to go out and explore it.
One early Saturday morning a friend and I went out for a long drive down to Surrey. It was the first time I had driven into this neck of the woods and I was amazed at the scenery that it had to offer.
I’m not sure of how much fuel I used up or many miles I covered but coming off the M25, onto rural roads, and through winding back roads in the forests of Surrey Hills whilst listening to Tom Misch was somewhat therapeutic.
As I drove further into Surrey Hills I could hear the V8 growling, passing all the hills, hidden dips, mountains of soil creating tight spaces and numerous trees creating intimidating shadows. Further along the route there were blind corners, twist and turns and straight roads.
After taking some time to soak in the views and take some photos we got back into our cars and whooshed a few miles of empty roads.
The whole drive was around 6 hours long but I can guarantee you that if you decide to go you’ll definitely get a sense of adrenaline rush along the way.
If you own a car I would highly recommend you take some time and give Surrey Hills a visit, especially if you own a car in London as you’ll love the feeling of driving all over again.
