“Designers want me to dress like spring, in billowing things. I don’t feel like spring. I feel like a warm red Autumn.”
– Marilyn Monroe

Welcome to another issue of Surrey Magazine.

The last few months have been challenging, but Covid19 has also brought out the best in people. Nurses, doctors, medical support staff, care home workers, plus those with elderly or vulnerable families have faced traumatic events with love, tenacity, patience and kindness. We salute them.

Many companies, from small independents to the high street, are facing serious hurdles to their continued existence, particularly in the arts and creative industries.

Our team recommend some of the marvellous, local, independent producers offering everything from international fashion to lingerie, handmade gifts to delicious, fresh, local produce.

This issue presents uplifting features on new health and lifestyle trends to inspire you, including boutique clubs such as BeZu luxury fitness and The Club London.

Peruse our guide on the best places to visit and what to do in England, Scotland and Wales. There are snow-capped peaks to climb, cool lakes for wild swimming and fascinating areas of historical interest to explore.

We celebrate luxury brands that exemplify fine craftsmanship and brands that look to the future, including sustainability, diversity and inclusiveness as core to their brand ethos.

Taylor Swift has brought out a new album developed during the lockdown, this fusion of country and pop is probably her best yet.
The latest trend in property is multi-use, creating an environment for work, play, fitness and living, all under the same roof, big or small.

Our fashion spread is a homage to pirates and the magnificent beauty of our coastline. Nothing quite like messing about in boats, whilst divinely dressed.

I take the Ferrari GTC4 Lusso on a tour of vineyards in Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire, and revel in the extreme performance and refinement that Ferrari delivers in this touring marvel.

Enjoy our selection of the finest new watches, all offering superb quality and a little something extra in terms of design, originality and collectability.

Keep fit around Surrey, and make the most of the extraordinarily beautiful landscapes and walks on our doorstep. The River Wey has not seen such crowds since the fifties!

Find the most stylish way to isolate. Read all about the best yachts for charter and the finest places to visit once aboard.

We look at the best private schools in the area and evaluate their merits so you can make the right decision for your offspring.
Our travel feature takes us to the magnificent La Manga Club resort in south-eastern Spain, justly celebrated for its golf club and family-friendly houses and apartments.

Like Marilyn Monroe, let’s embrace autumn as flowers turn to fruit and the leaves explode chromatically in different hues of fiery red and deep orange.
