The Borough of Woking is located in central Surrey. Woking itself has strong transport links with regular fast train services to London and the M25 motorway nearby.
The Wey Navigation, opened in 1653, and the Basingstoke Canal, opened in the 1790s, which run through the borough, were both once important trade routes, now used for leisure activities. The modern town of Woking developed after the building of the railway in the 1830s. Sites of interest in the area include Brookwood Cemetery, the Mosque and Woking Palace.
Many horticultural businesses have flourished on the sandy soil.
