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)

The Friends of Woking Palace are helping to preserve its character for the benefit of future generations, and you can help by joining the Friends and ensuring the Palaces's future.

The Friends are involved in a variety of activities, including:

  • We have working parties to keep the copse in good condition
  • Guides are needed to take visitors around the site on Open Days
  • Stewards are needed to be on duty at Open Days
  • We need people to help on the information stands on Open Days
  • Fund raising
  • Helping with publicity
  • Or get in touch and we'll find something for you to do!
  • They are also involved in a new Heritage Lottery Fund project
