Woking Town Centre
Type: Shopping Centre
Woking’s level town centre, under-cover shopping malls and extra facilities for people with mobility difficulties, combined with a wide range of shops including large high street stores and smaller, more specialist retail outlets, make Woking a popular destination.
Woking Town Centre is home to two modern shopping malls, The Peacocks and Wolsey Place, plus boutique shops in the surrounding streets. New to Woking in October 2014 is Market Walk, conveniently located between Wolsey Place and The Peacocks shopping centre. Here you will find 15 permanet kiosks featuring a range of quality traders. The town square is the location of Woking’s popular farmers’ market every third Thursday in the month and some Saturdays.
Tired shoppers can take the weight off their feet in one of Woking’s many restaurants and cafes. Whether you’re after a quick snack or a three-course meal, English or Continental, Oriental or Indian, you’re bound to find something that takes your fancy in Woking. Many in the town centre offer pre- and post- theatre menus – why not combine a good meal with an evening at The Ambassadors theatres or cinemas?
For the convenience of anyone who has difficulties getting around on foot, the Town Centre Buggy, run by Woking Community Transport, offers free transport, Monday to Friday, in the pedestrianised areas. The buggy calls at a number of popular spots around the town centre and can be hailed on sight.
Woking also benefits from ShopMobility, on level 1 of the Peacocks Shopping Centre, which offers power scooters, and manual or powered wheelchairs for hire. A companion service is available if you have trouble using a wheelchair, or require extra assistance. Theatre-goers can book wheelchairs for shows at The Ambassadors complex, and ShopMobility has a car park exclusively for its own customers’ use. To find out more before you visit, see the DisabledGo website, which provides access information to hundreds of businesses and services in Woking and beyond.
