Things to do in Surrey – A walk in Coombe Wood Gardens Park

Coombe Wood is a small woodland and garden area in the old village of Coombe, Upper Shirley, in the London Borough of Croydon near the junction of Coombe Lane and Conduit Lane. The Coombe Wood Gardens are divided into a series of rooms which together give an all year round display of shrubs and plants set against a backdrop of mature woodland.

We were really impressed by the size and the density of this woodland, a walk through the park with it’s undulating hills and steps, it’s quite a physical exercise.

Coombe Wood Park is open until quite late in the day, so it’s possible to pay a visit on the way back from work.

A Beautiful Landscape Of The Surrey Countryside – Painshill Park

On one of my journeys to explore the Surrey countryside, I’ve found this beautiful place: Painshill Park

I like to explore the British countryside, particularly the Surrey Hills and surrounding area.
Most of this is categorised as AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), and it’s beautiful indeed.
The British weather being so changeable makes every day a surprise, one moment it’s raining, then it’s sunny, and so on.
Therefore, the day of this particular landscape photograph, it was raining and I was on my way back home thinking that the weather wasn’t going to improve. All of a sudden, the wind picked up and the clouds started to dissipate, so I decided to go visit a beautiful place called Painshill Park.
I went for a long walk all over the park, and I came out with this shot, which I’m very pleased with, and which has made it to Surrey Life magazine.
