Woking Palace

In the fields to the east of Old Woking, alongside the River Wey, the ruins of Woking Palace can be found.

A Scheduled Ancient Monument, the site is also a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

Henry VIII spent considerable sums of money on Woking during his reign but in 1620 the Manor of Woking was granted to one of James I's courtiers, Sir Edward Zouch, who pulled down much of the Palace buildings and used the materials elsewhere in the area.

Directions: Carter's Lane, Old WOking GU22 9JN. One mile east of Old Woking village. Access by foot or cycle only, with no parking available on site.
