Plan your visit to Waverley

Despite being blessed with pristine countryside and a slower pace of life, Waverley is well located and connected for international visitors travelling into Gatwick Airport, Heathrow Airport, Waterloo Train Station and the Eurostar Terminal at St Pancras.

If you already live in Surrey or nearby then the A3, which links to the M25, is the quickest route into the heart of Waverley although there are many winding country lanes via the chocolate box pretty villages for a more picturesque drive.  

Once there, take a look at the Hills to Harbour Community Rail Partnership website to explore the scenic towns, villages and attractions in Waverley by rail.

Enjoy car free days in the Surrey Hills.  Find the next train to:

There’s plenty for the walkers and cyclists too…

Or, alternatively, enjoy a stroll along the River Wey on one of the scenic towpaths that wind their way through the towns and villages with miles of riverside walking for you to explore.  

  • The North Downs Way, which tracks the historic Pilgrims’ Way route, starts in Waverley near Farnham train station and continues all the way through the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and beyond to Dover in Kent.
  • St Swithuns Way - a 34 mile (55 km) long-distance footpath that runs from Winchester to Farnham.
  • King Alfred's Way - a national trail which runs through Waverley from Farnham through Tilford and Thursley Common to Hindhead as part of a 350km loop.
  • The Downs Link, which provides the option for cyclists to travel all the way down to the south coast at Shoreham on bike (before coming back by train, of course!).

Quiet, but never boring, you'll find fabulous food, wonderful pubs, fresh air and space to relax. Visit Waverley to discover your new happy place in the Surrey countryside.
