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.
