If you’re still looking to live the fast life, then Byfleet grants you easy access to London with a direct train service from West Byfleet and a mainline service from Woking. Byfleet is itself bisected from West Byfleet by the M25 motorway which provides a convenient arterial road for navigating the South. To put it simply, life in slower-paced Byfleet does not mean you are cut off from the world!
Making an appearance in the Domesday Book of 1086 isn’t the earliest mention of Byfleet, there’s a record of the village existing in 727 and traces of a Neolithic settlement have been found in archeological digs. Today you will find evidence of Byfleet’s rich history in the village’s seven listed buildings including the gorgeous watermill and the 14th century St Mary’s Church which stands proudly in the village centre. Byfleet Manor will also be recognisable from its appearance in Downton Abbey!
Plenty To Do
Living in Byfleet puts you at the heart of British aviation and motoring history. Nearby is Brooklands Museum which was formally the UK’s foremost motor racing centre and also the home of Concorde.
