Top 5 Reasons To Look At This Surprising Surrey Town

Whether it’s a quick train ride to London or an excellent school for your children, there are plenty of options available. Come see us today and find out why we call this place “Wonderful Woking”.


Woking is the perfect place to live if you’re looking for town life with a big personality. The birthplace of The Jam and setting of scenes from the sci-fi classic, War Of The Worlds, this town has history, energy and character all of its own. 

2 – ON THE UP!

If you’re looking for a great town that is close to London, Woking is the perfect place to be. With its fast-evolving charm and chic, this home county destination makes a great choice when it comes down to living in a neighbourhood that is most definitely on the up. House prices have risen by 6,5% in 2021, so why not come and take a tour with our local Woking property specialists.


Whether you’re looking for a spacious home with good schools or an easy commute to London, Woking’s architectural legacy might not be as robust in comparison to other Surrey towns like Guildford and Leatherhead, but it is still well worth checking out what is available. House prices are above the local average with rental yields also providing a great opportunity for investors alike.

With 250 trains passing through Woking train station on an average weekday, transport to and from this great town is not an issue!v Now in a contactless zone, return fares to London Waterloo are just £12.50 with South Western Railway.


There are a number of excellent schools to choose from. Hoe Valley is the local secondary school, and Knaphill the primary – all rated “outstanding” by Ofsted. There is also an excellent choice of pre-school nurseries to choose from, including a Bright Horizons.
