Living in Surrey in the UK does appear to be mor expensive than Markham. House price vary between £350,00. to over £2M. Persons over the age of 65 get a free bus pass which can be used in a lot of the parts of the UK. Being situated just inside the M25 motorway and close to London means that there is a great demand for housing aqnd the roads are grossly overcrowded as though theris public transport it is not very reliable. Ashtead has lot of countryside adjacent to it, being a few minute car ride from Epsom Downs. home of the Derby horse race and there are much common land but little agricultural land. It has many small local shops but no big retail outlets. It is considered quite a desirable location in which to live.
