Weybridge is a town by the River Wey in Elmbridge, Surrey. A London suburb, Weybridge is nicely located close to the capital and Woking but with a mix of river life, cosmopolitan living and hidden heritage. House prices are above national average and property offering range from large family homes, new developments and modest cottages.

Weybridge is part of the government district of Elmbridge which is often referred to as the 'Beverley HIlls of Britain' because of its wealthy status and popularity amongst sports personalities and the rich and famous.


This attractive riverside town is where the River Wey meets the River Thames and it is rumoured to be the site where Julius Caesar crossed the Thames in 55BC. The area is further steeped in history, appearing in the 10 56 Domesday Book as ‘Webrige’ with a list of the area’s assets. These include a wool worth hogs, 32 acres of a meadow and one and a half ploughs. There is mention of Weybridge in Henry III’s records too. Throughout the late 18th century, the area was known for its seed milling to make flour and river crossing but there were no large shops, coach houses or markets. It wasn’t until the late 19th century that Weybridge station arrived and brought people to the area.


Architecturally, Weybridge is predominantly Victorian, with terraced houses and white stucco mansions. Large, detached family homes are prized, particularly in St George’s Hill. The area is home to five Span estates, home to well-designed post war flats and small homes that are popular with young professionals and retired members of the community.


Now, the area is a commuter hotspot, with lots of professionals and families taking advantage of the river and open green spaces as well as the proximity to London. There are fantastic schools in the area, lots of independent shops, cafes and restaurants as well as cricket, rugby and rowing clubs. The area is well loved by famous names, author E.M Forster lived in Weybridge as did the well-loved Gilbert O’Sullivan and Tom Jones in the late 1960’s.


Transport links are readily available, with trains travelling to London Waterloo in just under forty minutes. Southern Railways also provide rail links to the South of England and further afield. The area is well connected by motorways like the M4 and M25.
