Welcome to Farnham

Lying midway between London and Winchester, Farnham is a thriving and bustling historic town in Surrey.

It is of historic interest, with many old buildings, including a number of Georgian houses and Farnham Castle majestically overlooks the town. A short distance southeast of the town centre are the ruins of Waverley Abbey, Moor Park House and Mother Ludlam’s Cave. The town is drained by the River Wey, which is navigable only to canoes at this point.



Here are some of our personal favourite hangouts, in the Farnham area.

The town is approximately 34 miles WSW of London in the extreme west of Surrey, adjacent to the border with Hampshire. By road Guildford is just 11 miles (17 km) to the east and Winchester a further 28 miles (45 km) along the same axis as London. Farnham is the largest town in Waverley, and one of the top five conurbations in Surrey.

Charters are also located in the cathedral city of Winchester and the thriving market towns of Alresford and Alton. These locations are well positioned to reach the coast, as indeed they also are to reach many major towns such as Basingstoke and Reading to the north, and Southampton, Portsmouth and Bournemouth to the south. It is also well worth noting the myriad of pretty villages and beautiful countryside that Surrey and Hampshire have to offer.
