Spotlight on Weybridge

Have you considered Weybridge?

Located approximately 18 miles south-west of London, Weybridge offers the convenience of being just 30 minutes to London Waterloo on the fast train and an abundance of good and outstanding OFSTED rated schools.

As a family we love Weybridge for it’s accessibility to the City and having the countryside and the wide variety of attractions on our doorstep is a real bonus. Being not a very sporty family, river walks, picnics in the park, visits to Surrey Downs and the abundance of gardens is plenty enough for our lazy brood. Of course, being close to the airports and motorways is great for getting away for further trips when times allowed.

We set up home in Weybridge 12 years ago and have found it very easy to settle in with our friendly neighbours and great School community. Could this be the perfect destination for your family too?
