Painshill Park, Cobham

Last weekend Andrew and I did a fair amount of exploring in Surrey. For a few years now, I've been dying to visit the Surrey hills, as they are the setting of my most favorite film, The Holiday (post to follow). After an hour drive on the M25, and before making our way to Shere, a small village in Guildford, we visited Painshill Park. I chose it as a sort of "day starter". We packed a lunch and visited each fairytale landmark on the incredible 18th century landscape grounds. I was amazed by the pristine follies and bridges, the unique crystal grotto and Rapunzel-like gothic tower. The forest was ever so enchanting and filled with wildlife. It was a refreshing start to a great day.

Oh that last shot, with the surrounding trees, is just magnificent.
