Surrey is undoubtedly one of the most desirable locations to live in the UK. Bordering on Greater London is the most densely populated and third most populated county in the South East region; and with its beautiful towns and affluent reputation, it’s not difficult to see why many people would chose to make it their home. France isn’t too bad though either – and if you’re set on building a new life across the channel and require a professional removals company that specialise in Surrey to France removals, Anglo French Removals are on hand to help make your move that little bit easier.
Relocating from such a gorgeous area of England is difficult – we understand this from over 30 years’ experience of assisting people with their move from Surrey to France. The county of Surrey accommodates a variety of scenic sites and landscapes, including Box Hill, the Devil’s Punch Bow and Frensham Common. In addition to the 80 Wildlife Trust reserves located in the county, Surrey has several historical buildings and gardens such as the Tudor mansion of Losely Park, which was built in the 1560s, and the 18th century Palladian mansion Clandon Park. Guilford Castle and Runnymede (the ancient site where the Magna Carta was sealed) provide a further testament to the county’s historical importance and magical heritage.
Surrey boasts a number of fantastic great deal of leisure and sports facilities, accommodating a wide range of pastimes and pursuits. Cricket is very popular amongst the residents; with the mighty ‘Surrey Country Cricket Club’ being heavily supported throughout the club’s successful history. Sports fans can also enjoy the famous Epsom Derby horseracing event, which takes place in the district of Epsom.
In terms of transport, Surry is a commuters dream. It offers fantastic links into Central London and its surrounding areas, both by road and rail. Major road routes including the M25, M3 and M23 are within easy access, while London Heathrow and Gatwick airport are just a short drive away. Regular train services into Central London stations such as London Waterloo, London Bride and London Victoria make the daily commute for London workers incredibly quick and simple. It’s one of the main reasons why there are so many wealthy people who reside in Surrey. Being one of the most affluent regions in the UK, Surrey has the highest GDP per capita as well as the highest property values outside Inner London. The county also supposedly accommodates the highest proportion of millionaires in the UK and is the main UK base for numerous global firms including Samsung, Nikon, Canon and Toyota.
In our time, we’ve helped many people move back from France to Surrey, and given the quality of life the county provides, it’s not difficult to see why. There’s something for everyone; especially the foodies. Offering a selection of lavish Michelin Star and award winning restaurants, Surrey is perfect for those who cherish the fine dining experience. As well as dining in luxury, residents can also enjoy the variety of vibrant cafes, bars and nightclubs that are scattered throughout the county towns. Surrey is full of family fun too – you can ride the rollercoasters at ‘Thorpe Park’, pet animals at Bocketts or Godstone Farm, or climb the treetops at Go Ape.
On the other hand, living in France has its perks too. The warm weather, cheaper property, exquisite food and drink, the diverse culture, the picturesque scenery – it all makes for a superb lifestyle full of pleasure, comfort and tranquillity, which many of us aspire to have.

Just a quick message to say thanks for the safe delivery of my furniture from Charente, France to London - the coordination was great as was the care, I really appreciated it, especially the safe delivery of the grandfather clock and rocking horse, which were my grandmother's, and I was worried about! So - a big thank you - I will happily recommend you.
Vicky Edwards, Charente
We just wanted to say thank you for such a brilliant and seamless service. You will remember that your quotation came in at about 50% cheaper than the two bigger companies and obviously we were worried that would reflect in the service.
From your response time, to the lovely people we chatted to in Maidstone with our mutiple questions, letting us add to our load at no extra charge, to yesterday's experience when Nino and his mate arrived, everything has been quite brilliant.
They called us an hour before arrival and were both so cheery and obliging despite their obvious long drive and need to get to the next pick up. We had two different locations for our furniture plus we changed our minds a couple of times and literally nothing was too much trouble - Nino's manipulation of that giant blue monster around the tiny farm lanes was quite breathtaking!
Great job! Please thank your team.
Heather and David, Trèbes
Dear Mark and Stephanie,
I would like to let you know what an excellent job Rob and Jake did this afternoon. It was not an easy place to which to get their lorry and they had to carry things down to the front gate. But nothing phased them and they remained cheerful and professional. I will unhesitatingly recommend your firm to anyone needing transport to or from the UK.
With many thanks for your help.
Rosemary Barrow, Essex
