Situated south of London, the popular town of Woking is a short distance from Guildford and within easy reach of central London. Woking developed around its railway station, which was built in 1838 at the railway junction between London, the south coast and south-west England. To the south-east of today’s busy town, on the River Wey, is an area known as Old Woking. It’s association with aircraft came when Brooklands Aerodrome was used in World War I was used for test flying and deliveries for an aircraft factory. Known as The Lions Works, the factory was redeveloped in the 1990s and is now the Lion Retail Park.
There are great villages that surround Woking including Knaphill, Maybury, Goldsworth Park, Pyrford, Westfield and Old Woking which has a large conservation area. Brookwood Cemetery was acquired by the London Necropolis Company in the 1800s but towards the end of the century, large detached houses and golf course were built to accommodate a growing population.

The Lightbox arts and heritage centre also contains a range of paintings and sculptures.
