This circular walk from Woking Railway Station passes locations associated with H.G. Wells – one of the nation’s greatest science fiction writers and public intellectuals. His move to Woking in 1895 inspired some of his greatest works, including The War of the Worlds. Wells made Woking infamous in the late 19th Century by making Horsell Common the location for his Martian invasion so to celebrate the Borough’s connection with H.G. Wells, Woking Borough Council and its partners have launched the ‘Wells in Woking’ cultural event programme for 2016. More details can be found here:
