What locals say about Woking

  1. Very easy to get into London and Guildford via train or car. Also very close to M25 to go south to Sussex. Beautiful Surrey Hills all around, with unlimited options for walks in national parks or a bike ride. Excellent shops including Hobbycraft, Paperchase, Superdry, Debenhams, TK Maxx. Typical restaurants such as Cafe Rouge, with excellent gastro pubs all around the town and surrounding villages

  2. Woking is a great place to live because it ticks all the boxes for a young, vibrant person. And the transport links are brilliant - we're talking 20 mins to London = 1 game of Sudoku (advanced setting). :D Jack

  3. Because it's small good living area, with a lot of green areas, handy station, near Heathrow airport, local hospitals, big shopping centres

  4. Fast trains to London, good bus services, two hospitals within 7.5 miles plus community hospitals, quiet area
