Find out more about Woking

Sitting less than 25 miles from Central London makes Woking a hit with those looking to buy property just outside of the capital.

This large town has excellent transport links – hop on a train from Woking Station and you can be at London Waterloo in less than half an hour.

Of course, great access to London is all well and good, but they would count for little if the town itself had nothing to offer.

Thankfully, anyone buying property in Woking will discover a charming part of the country.

Old Woking is made up of the original village that took the town’s name until its expansion when the railway was built in 1838.

Since then Woking has flourished with a period of growth bringing a slew of new housing and shops from the 1970s onwards.

Those who decide to buy property for sale in Woking can enjoy top-class shows at the Ambassadors’ New Victoria Theatre.     Current productions include Avenue Q, Guys and Dolls, Sunny Afternoon: The Story of The Kinks and Gangsta Granny. Meanwhile, future one-offs cater for all the family, with the likes of Peppa Pig, comedian Romesh Ranganathan and Jimmy Osmond among those stopping off in the town.

Woking is also of literary importance, as HG Wells wrote World of the Worlds while staying in the town. That will be marked throughout 2016 to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the writer’s birth.

Foodies are also in luck as Woking is cosmopolitan in its choice of restaurants. Take a stroll through the town and you will find everything from traditional British grub to Thai, Cantonese, Bengalese and much more.

There are also several beautiful villages on the outskirts of the town for those buying property in Woking to consider. One such option is Chobham, which has been pinpointed by Country Life magazine as one of the best places for commuters to live. They say that the village is a pretty conservation area which also benefits from several shops and pubs.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801822874-ADNFCR
