Surrey

One of the most densely populated county in England, with over 1 million residents, Surrey is also one of the most affluent. It is close to London but far enough to offer a more relaxed environ: there are plenty of green open spaces and it has the most woodland in England. There's palaces, castles, stately homes, market towns, and four racecourses. Visitors can relax, shop, or plan family excursions with ease.
