Woking marked Her Majesty the Queen’s 60-year reign by designing a brand new public space in the heart of the town called ‘Jubilee Square’. Visitors can now enjoy high quality restaurants and outdoor seating, new paving and landscaping in the town centre, plus enhanced retail outlets in this area and the refurbished shopping centres nearby.
Woking offer a large variation of attractions, from history and art exhibitions at “The Lightbox” which is an award-winning gallery and museum – to some of the biggest shows from the West End at one of the region’s largest venues, The New Victoria Theatre. Theatre goers can also enjoy some some home-grown talent at the neighbouring Rhoda McGaw Theatre, or sit back and enjoy one of the latest blockbuster films, at The Ambassadors complex.
Places of interest include Brookwood Cemetery, the ruins of Henry VIII’s former country retreat at Woking Palace, and the first purpose built mosque in the UK – the Shah Jahan.
Woking has many picturesque commons and heath lands as well as the 12.9km upgraded Basingstoke Canal towpath, which can be easily accessed from Woking Town Centre and at various points around the Borough. The Woking’s Cycle Trails make it easier than ever to get to, across and around the Borough on two wheels.
Woking is perfectly placed in the heart of Surrey and has a fast, regular train service from London Waterloo, which is just half an hour away.
