Location and connectivity
Situated in central Surrey, 25 miles south west of London and covering an area of 6,400 hectares, Woking contrasts a modern evolving urban centre with 3,800 hectares of unspoilt countryside. Over the last decade, Woking has grown rapidly as a commercial, business and transport hub, partly due to its connectivity with London and the South East.
Woking has an ideal strategic setting for companies with a regional, national and international focus. The M25, M3 and A3 are each within a 15 minute drive of Woking Town Centre, providing excellent access by road to all major centres.
London Waterloo is just 25 minutes away, with trains every few minutes to the capital via Clapham Junction. Woking also provides fast rail links with the South and South West, including Exeter, Cardiff, Salisbury, Bristol, Winchester, Bournemouth and the international ferry ports of Portsmouth and Southampton. Central London's Eurostar Terminal at St Pancras Station is within one hour of Woking, offering up to 20 trains per day to Paris (2h 15m), 10 trains per day to Brussels (1h 51) and eight trains per day to Lille (1h 20).
London's largest airports, Heathrow and Gatwick, are within 16 and 30 miles respectively, with a direct, half hourly coach link to Heathrow from Woking Railway Station. Gatwick can be reached within the hour by rail from Woking, and Southampton Airport is 40 minutes direct by train.
Woking also enjoys excellent digital connectivity. BT Openreach is upgrading its existing infrastructure across Surrey to a fibre-based network, capable of providing superfast broadband speeds, known as Next Generation Access (NGA). Virgin Media also offers a fibre broadband service that covers much of Woking's urban and surrounding areas.
