Woking Mini Guide
What can you Tell me About Woking?
Woking is an important commuter town for London located in the north of Surrey. It has existed for well over a thousand years as a small village but only grew alongside London’s growth. For what appears to be a bland commuter town, it has plenty of things to entertain the tourist.
How Easy is it to get to Woking?
For the international traveller, it’s very easy to get to Woking. Heathrow and Gatwick
Airports are within thirty to forty minutes travel and the town is on the mainline railway from the south coast into London. You can rent a car at Heathrow
or Gatwick or take the train to Woking before hiring a car there. Flights arrive at Gatwick and Heathrow from destinations all over the world making Woking easily reachable from just about anywhere.
What can I do or see in Woking?
Woking has a surprising number of attractions for tourists including the former royal palace of Henry VIII, just off Carter’s Lane. Henry VIII’s grandmother lived there during his reign and it remained a royal palace until sold by James I in 1620.
You may think that mosques are a recent addition to the UK skyline but the Shah Jehan II Mosque was built in the late 19th century and funded by one of the rare female Muslim rulers, the Begum of Bhopal. Outside of prayer times you can visit the mosque and find out more about its history.
For a great day out, take a trip in a canal barge along the Basingstoke
Canal and stop off for a pub lunch at one of the many canal-side inns.
