Overlooking the beautiful, historic Georgian town of Farnham, on the Surrey/Hampshire border, Farnham Castle has stood proudly on its hill for nearly 900 years, one of the few remaining great medieval houses of England, built by the powerful and wealthy Bishops of Winchester to provide a convenient stopping place between London and Winchester. After 1660, the Palace became the Bishop’s principal residence and many English monarchs, from King John to Queen Victoria have visited or stayed at the castle. Following a hearty pub lunch in one of the town's oldest inns; located in Castle Street, considered the grandest in Surrey, we will be introduced to the town's splendid Georgian buildings, many of which are very much older than their brick facades initially reveal and will visit Grade I St Andrew's church, the oldest parts dating from the middle to late 12th century, between 1150 and 1170.
