Woking Palace is a Scheduled Monument in the county of Surrey, which sits on a gravel island beside the River Wey.
English Heritage describe Woking Palace as "of particular importance because of its excellent survival, high diversity, enormous archaeological potential both on the island itself and in the waterlogged moats and particularly because of its historical association with royalty and the amenity value which is afforded by this association."
(Extract from the National Heritage List for England entry for Woking Palace)
