Information about parking near Woking Station
As Woking is part of the London commuter belt, parking at its railway station is in high demand. The town is situated to the northwest of Surrey, and residents can reach London Waterloo station by train in less than 30 minutes.
Though Woking has long existed and is mentioned in the 11th century Domesday Book, much of it sprang up in early Victorian times with the building of the railway station. It is a multicultural town and notably has a thriving Italian community, which mainly originated from Sicily.
