Time to ex­plore

Surrey Life - - Town Life -

Sur­round­ing this, there is an im­prov­ing café cul­ture and the town con­tin­ues its shift to­wards be­com­ing a truly go-to shop­ping des­ti­na­tion.

There are won­der­ful lit­tle cu­riosi­ties too, such as Cel­lar Mag­neval, a se­ri­ously good wine bar, and The Cosy, a vol­un­teer­run, not-for-profit cof­fee­house.

The Light­box, a mag­i­cal art gallery and mu­seum, has be­come a must-visit for peo­ple across Sur­rey, not just those who live in the town, while the New Vic­to­ria The­atre goes from strength-to-strength.

The WWF even base their UK char­ity ef­forts from their eco-friendly head­quar­ters, The Liv­ing Planet Cen­tre, along­side the Bas­ingstoke Canal.

With beau­ti­ful coun­try­side and vil­lages such as Ri­p­ley, Chob­ham and Bis­ley on the doorstep, the town is only half an hour com­mute out of Lon­don from the main­line rail­way sta­tion, so it’s per­haps no sur­prise Wok­ing finds it­self in high de­mand.

Place Wok­ing on your ‘ones to watch’ list. They’ve got a plan, they’re stick­ing to it and the sky re­ally is the limit.
