York Road is one of central Woking's most convenient locations in terms of access into the town which is no more than just a few minutes' walk from the house. Woking is going through a very considerable programme of regeneration currently which has already resulted in the town having a far more modern and contemporary feel to it particularly with the influx of well known and interesting bars, cafes and restaurants all along Commercial Way. The adjacent Peacocks shopping centre has a large food hall on the lower ground floor, a good deal of shopping on the upper floors while off to one side is the New Victoria theatre and multi screen cinema. Woking's mainline station is widely regarded as offering one of the best commutes into Waterloo that can be found in the south east with trains reaching London in approx. 24 minutes. In and around Woking there are excellent schools catering for all ages in both the private and the state sector along with a collection of very fine and highly regarded golf clubs all of which are within easy reach.
