Shere, a village so quintessentially English, it’s been featured in numerous films (The Holiday, Bridge Jones) as a picture perfect place.
Surrey villages are some of the most beautiful in England. Think: red brick cottages, cosy pubs, a babbling brook, charm around every corner.
Recently, I hopped on a train south for a day trip to Shere. A great place for a quick break from the city, I spent the afternoon wandering Gomshall, and then Shere. Shere is a short walk (20 minutes) from the Gomshall train statin, making it easy to access without a car.
If you visit, don’t miss Shere’s cute shops, the Dabbling Duck tea room for a cream team, and stop at The White Horse and Gomshall Mill for a couple of pints.
A lovely couple of hours outside of city.
What are your favourite day trips from London, or go-to’s for city breaks?
