Sitting at the junction of the North Downs Line and Waterloo to Reading Line, Wokingham railway station serves around 2.3 million passengers every year looking for trains to Gatwick Airport, Redhill, London Waterloo and beyond.

The station itself opened in July of 1849 and has seen a number of changes and expansions in the 160-plus years since. This includes the electrification of the lines, which took place in 1939, and the rebuilding of the station in 1973. In 1987, the platforms were lengthened and more recently in 2013, Wokingham railway station opened a brand new station building.

Among the many things to do in the local area is the Billingbear Park Golf Course, which not only offers 18 holes across its two main courses, but is also used for weddings and other events all year around. But if golf isn’t your thing and you’d rather just take a walk with the kids, there’s also the 40-acre California Country Park.
