The Woking Martian

Woking is situated about 30 miles south west of London. However, the current location of Woking is only about 150 years old – the town having grown up around the railway station and the Basingstoke canal. The original area is now known as Old Woking and is a couple of miles to the south and Henry VIII used to have a palace there.

The Woking has a few good pubs although not as many as some towns. Locate the reviewed pubs in the Woking, Horsell, Knaphill and Guildford areas on a map

Getting to Woking

Woking is served by frequent trains from London, Guildford, Basingstoke and Farnham – all operated by South West Trains.

There is a bus stand by the station but services are mainly local – with services to Knaphill, Horsell and Chobham.

Eating in Woking

The Pizza Express in Goldsworth Road is good. Noodle Nation in the centre is like a chinese version of Wagamama and serves tasty food for a resonable price.
