    Woking Palace was the site of a Tudor residence with origins dating back to 13th century. Little survives at the site itself, but this circular walk and audio guide shares what we know about this important site. Using the latest research, reconstructions, and results from a series of excavations, this guide by Surrey County Archaeological Unit (SCAU) will shed light on life in Old Woking and Woking Palace 500 years ago.

    This 2.5 mile circular loop will take you around Woking Palace and the surrounding area, starting and finishing at Manor Way Car Park in Old Woking.

    SCAU would like to thank to The Friends of Woking Palace and Woking Borough Council for their support on the Woking Palace and its Park project.

    We really enjoyed the walk and learning about Woking's history and the Palace. Thankfully we had our wellies and baby carrier as the site was very muddy.

    Very interesting. Wellies could be useful as there was a lot of mud and lying water.
