Top 4 Ways We Know It's Spring in Surrey

  1. Check out the Surrey Archives’ collection of vintage Easter postcards in this cheerful little YouTube slideshow.
  2. Visit a true gem in Surrey’s heritage collection, Darts Hill Garden Park. Created by Francisca and Edwin Darts in the early 1940s, this 7.5 acre garden is open to the public in April, May, June and September.
  3. Speaking of gardens, the Historic Stewart Farm’s heirloom gardens are wide awake and beginning to show off their spring finery. Stroll through the garden beds to enjoy forsythia, 1800s “King Edward VII” flowering currant, native rhododendron blooms, and rare heritage vegetable varieties just starting to sprout.
  4. Take part in the Surrey Museum’s annual Easter Fair on Saturday, April 19. Take part in an Easter scavenger hunt in the Museum galleries, and meet rescue animals, from rabbits to reptiles and dogs to parrots, and the organizations that save them.
