Weybridge in Surrey is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. Henry VIII built the now-vanished palace of Oatlands there in 1537. Bricks from his demolished palace were later used to build the lock walls when the River Wey was canalised.
Today, the town has a population of around 20,000. It is served by a fast rail link to London Waterloo, which has made the town an attractive choice for city commuters. Major businesses based in and around Weybridge include Sony, Toshiba and Procter & Gamble.
Famous Weybridge residents have included John Lennon and Ringo Starr, Sir Cliff Richard, Nicola Roberts, Eamonn Holmes, Theo Paphitis and Sir Geoff Hurst. The Daily Mail once described the local area as "Britain's Beverly Hills". Local attractions include the Brooklands Museum of motorsport and aviation, the Elmbridge Museum, and a select range of boutiques, pubs, restaurants and cafés.
