About

Weybridge is close to the attractions of London yet surrounded by Surrey countryside, and has a long association with motoring and aviation history.

It sits on the River Wey and bounded to the north by the River Thames at the mouth of the Wey. Weybridge appears in Domesday Book of 1086 as Webrige and Webruge held partly by Chertsey Abbey; partly by an Englishman from the abbey; and partly by Herfrid from the conqueror's brother, the Bishop of Bayeux. Until the late 18th century Weybridge was as a very small village with a river crossing.

In 1537, a manor house affiliated to Weybridge, on what was a border of Weybridge and Walton, Oatlands Palace, was built by Henry VIII, which was where he married his fifth wife Catherine Howard. When it was demolished in 1650, bricks from its walls helped to line the then new Wey Navigation canal. Elmbridge Museum is located in Church Street above the library, and has a range of interesting exhibits, including artefacts from Henry VIII’s Oatlands Palace, which used to stand at Weybridge.
