Facts about Surrey

Guildford is the County town of Surrey.   The Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty encompasses much of the surrounding countryside, it is a rich and varied environment with opportunities for walking, picnics or just admiring the views.

The River Wey navigations, which run through the centre of Guildford, was one of the first rivers to be made navigable and Guildford later became an important staging post for travellers by stagecoach between London and Portsmouth, being midway between the capital city and coastal port.

The ornate Royal Holloway Founders Building, modelled on the French Chateau de Chambord. Built for the Victorian philanthropist, Thomas Holloway, as a college for women it was opened by Queen Victoria in 1886 and contains an excellent small art gallery, which can be viewed by prior appointment.

The great architectural feature of Englefield Green is Royal Holloway, part of the University of London, which stands among trees, gardens and playing fields between the village and the railway. This vast and splendid building was originally Royal Holloway College, one of the first women's colleges in the country when it was opened by Queen Victoria in 1886. It is one of the most impressive Victorian structures anywhere around London and was built between 1879 and 1887 to the designs of W.H. Crossland for Thomas Holloway, for whom Crossland also designed the Holloway Sanatorium at Virginia Water.

1st Associated is a marketing company marketing independent surveyors. We are not owned by any Estate Agents and are not on any approved panels.   We only have qualified Surveyors working for us.   

If you are buying a house then you need a Surveyor to carry out your survey.   Estate Agents wont necessarily recommend Surveyors (unless they own them!) Egham was a busy coaching town in the 18th and 19th centuries, the town is now by-passed by heavy traffic and this together with the recently pedestorianised town centre make it a favourite shopping place.
