Why do you find Virginia Water a great place to live?

Local resident

"It's close to London but rural enough to still be counted as the 'countryside'. Easy commute into London and friendlier people as not so busy and rushed unlike central London areas."

"Chobham Common is the legendary source of the Chobham Treacle Mine. The treacle in question was to be used by a garrison of troops stationed there before they shipped out to the Crimea, but the treacle was left in a small subterranean cave where it could cool and hopefully not ferment. In 1901, they began to burst and it began to run down the hillside."

  1. About Virginia Water

    Virginia Water is an affluent village, a lake and, originally, a stream, the village being in the Runnymede Borough in Surrey and the bodies of water stretching over the borders of Runnymede, Old Windsor and Sunninghill and Ascot. The village takes its name from the lake in the nearby Windsor Great Park. The lake's name was transferred from a previous stream, which was probably named after the 'Virgin Queen'. Virginia Water is home to many London commuters. It is also close to the M25, M4 and M3 motorways.
