Surrey may be a landlocked county, but that doesn't mean there aren't plenty of places to get close to the water.

From the thrills of wakeboarding to leisurely riverboat journeys and lazing on lakes in pedalos, Surrey’s got rivers, lakes, waterways and outdoor pools to explore

Earlswood Lakes

Earlswood Lakes, Woodhatch Road, Reigate RH2 7QH

Enjoy a summers afternoon out on pedalos or rowing boats upon the beautiful lakes at Earlswood Common. Find out more information here.

Guildford Lido

Lido Rd, Guildford GU1 1HB

Get ready to make a splash at Guildford Lido, a glorious Olympic sized heated outdoor pool that has served the county since it opened back in 1933. So whether you're looking for a serious outdoor swim or a little fun on the slides, it’s the place to be. Find out more information here.

Buckland Park Lake

At the weekend refuel after some vigorous swimming or canoeing at El Rocinante, the lagoon-side mobile set up which has light bites and drinks or step inside The Reverie, a relaxed restaurant for something a little more substantial.

Dapdune Wharf
