Woking, in north Surrey, is the county's second largest town, with a population of over 60,000.

The modern centre of Woking was redeveloped in the 1990s with the Peacocks Centre being added to the existing shopping facilities around Commercial Way, the High Street and Wolsey Place shopping centre.

Woking library, one of the largest in Surrey, is located on Town Square in the centre of the town. The Peacocks Centre includes a cinema and the New Victoria and Rhoda McGaw theatres.

The War of the Worlds, written in 1898 by H G Wells, was partially based around Woking (hence the martian statue in the town centre).

The original centre of Woking was in the area now known as Old Woking (see local history page). Suburbs of Woking include Horsell, Knaphill and Goldsworth Park (a large development built in the 1980s) to the north of the town centre/railway line, and Hook Heath, Kingfield, Maybury and Westfield to the south.

South-East of Woking, near Old Woking, is Woking Palace - further information can be found on the aerial photographs and history pages, and on the Friends of Woking Palace website.

The mainline train station gives the town excellent transport links to London and there is also a RailAir coach link to Heathrow airport from the railway station. The M25 can be reached at Junction 11 (Chertsey), the M3 at Junction 3 (Lightwater) and the A3 at Send or Ripley (depending on the direction of travel).
