5 – Ancient Woking Palace – A Monument to the Past

Now here’s one for the history buffs! Along the picturesque River Wey lies the ruins of Woking Palace, a Royal Palace built during the Tudor era.

The Palace is both a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Scheduled Ancient Monument. Despite the ravages of time taking their toll on the site, idyllic surroundings add beauty and mystique to the area. The palace is a must-see if you’re a fan of taking a walk through history and struck by wanderlust.

6 – Go for a Calming Stroll Along Basingstoke Canal

Another one for the roamers and wanderers out there – Renowned as one of Britain’s most enchanting waterways, the Basingstoke Canal gracefully winds its way through the Woking Borough from Brookwood to West Byfleet and is easily accessed from Woking Town Centre, in close proximity to your abode at The Marches.

Originally intended to reach from London to the coast, the canal unfortunately never reached further than Basingstoke during its construction. It offers views of bridges, locks and wildlife, making for a delightful stroll.

7 – Doing Your Part at The Living Planet Centre
