The results are in! See where you voted as the best place to live in Surrey.

Blessed with a wealth of thriving market towns, pretty villages and beautiful bucolic countryside, Surrey has a lot to offer – not least that it’s well connected to the capital, the south coast and two international airports. This really is a destination offering the best of all worlds.



Possibly Surrey's best kept secret. Or not - if you're a regular at the popular annual bonfire night! If it's a tight-knit community you crave in a cute chocolate box village - Brockham could be for you.



Catnip to city commuters, Oxted is arguably the town with it all - great schools, excellent leisure facilities and a burgeoning music festival scene. Oh, and it's at the foot of the stunning North Downs - so gorgeous to boot!


Shamley Green

A quintessentially pretty Surrey village with two good pubs and a super active community life - Shamley Green was also the former home of Alfred Hitchcock among others.



A very pretty town surrounded by gorgeous countryside and with great transport links to both the capital and the south coast - what's not to love about Haslemere.



Idyllic country charm and yet with London still on the doorstep - it's no wonder Chobham is a highly sought-after address.



Whether it's a village - as it claims - or a town, there's no denying that Cranleigh's burgeoning arts and foodie scene, plus beautiful open countryside make it a very desirable place to live.



A thriving and affluent market town with a high street chock full of independent shops and restaurants, and still an easy commute to the capital - well, hello there Reigate.



It's known for its posh pads and famous residents, but there's more to this riverside town than pure glitz. Cobham retains a charming rural air and a strong sense of community.
