More about Woking:
Located twenty-five miles from London, in northwest Surrey, Woking started out as a village but eventually grew into a large town with a population of some 62,796 residents. Woking features a number of sites of historical interest, including Brookwood Cemetery (the London Necropolis), which is the largest cemetery in the UK and one of the biggest in Europe and Woking Palace, which was once the country retreat of Henry VIII. In addition, Woking is also one of the centers of culture in England as it hosts the New Victoria Theatre, which is one of the region’s biggest venues and The Lightbox, an award-winning museum and gallery that focuses on inventions, sculpture and art.
The newly-refurbished town center, known as the “Jubilee Square”, is also popular with visitors since it is highly pedestrianised, making it easy to get around on foot to enjoy the various restaurants and retail outlets in the area, as well as the nearby renovated shopping centres.
