Woking and its origins can be traced back to 1066 with Edward the Confessor's holding of the Royal Manor of Woking which later became a Palace, the ruins of which survive today. The original Royal Manor boundaries were roughly the present day Old Woking Road, Pyrford Common Road, Church Hill and Newark Lane with the River Wey as its Southern boundary.

It was not until the introduction of the Basingstoke Canal in 1788 and the railway in 1838 that Woking began to expand into the town it is today. A large part of the town reflects its Victorian influences but in recent years the centre has been redeveloped to include the Peacocks Centre which houses the New Victoria Theatre seating 1300, and a six screen cinema complex.

Now one of the busiest in the region, Woking Station is a major gateway with connections to London, the south west and the south coast. Trains run to London Waterloo, which can be reached in about 25 minutes, at least every 15 minutes throughout the day. Woking is within 10 minutes drive of the M25 Junction 11, M3 Junction 3 and A3 giving it excellent access by road to all major centres linking it into the national road network.

Pembroke Road / Park Lawn is conveniently located to the southeast of Woking town centre and railway station, both within easy walking distance. The town offers extensive shopping at The Peacocks Centre with major retailers such as Marks & Spencer, River Island, Monsoon and Next. Food shopping within the town is provided by Waitrose, Morrisons and Sainsburys.

Schools are well catered for within Woking, offering options at pre-school, primary and secondary education levels.

Woking town has a leisure centre which offers sports such as swimming, squash, badminton, martial arts, indoor cycling and a gymnasium to name but a few. Golf clubs are numerous within the area, Woking and Hoebridge Golf Club being approximately 3 miles distant and in under 10 miles you will find the renowned Wentworth and Foxhills courses.
