The local area guide to living in Woking: The Local Area Guide

Based in west Surrey, Woking is a popular area for commuters looking for a home away from the big smoke thanks to its convenient transport links. London’s Charing Cross is just 23 miles north and easily accessed by public transport. Because of its location, property prices in Woking are high – particularly suburbs such as Horsell and Woodham. The town centre and surrounding areas such as Mayford and Pirbright are more affordable, making these favourable for families and younger workers.

Woking is best known for its sustainable energy efforts, with much of the area’s power operating off the national grid and instead coming from renewable sources such as solar panels. Among the areas charm is a distinctively quieter way of life compared to the city, its canal and historical landmarks. Woking’s best claim to fame is perhaps best reflected by the unusual alien statue resurrected in its centre to honour H.G. Well’s The War of the Worlds - written and set in Woking.
