About Addlestone

Brought to you by DarkStar Discos, the Addlestone Marquee Hire Experts 

The name Addlestone is thought to derive from “Attel’s Denu” meaning the valley belonging to Attel. Addlestone began life as a quiet agricultural hamlet which served the needs of Chertsey Abbey. Until the late 17th or early 18th centuries much of the present centre of Addlestone was a ‘heathy common’ known as Addlestone Common or Marlheath. Coxes Lock Mill, Addlestone, was built in 1776-1777 and the joining of the Basingstoke Canal with the Wey Navigation in 1796 increased the traffic on the canals significantly.

Addlestone is home of the Crouch Oak, which once marked the boundary to Windsor Forest and is thought to be over 1,000 years old. The town was once the home of the Bleriot Aeroplane Factory but is now a busy local town. Station Road in Addlestone is the main high street and is a mix of local shops, smaller sized business offices and a large supermarket.

Locally the River Wey and Basingstoke Canal cater for leisure pursuits, Foxhills Golf and Country Club is a popular resort and the newly refurbished Brackendene BMX track is the home of a new club and is a well-used local facility. There are a number of popular parks and open spaces including Victory Park and Sayes Court catering for both formal and informal leisure pursuits.

Top Things to do in Addlestone

Recommended by DarkStar Discos, the Addlestone Marquee Hire Experts 

Brooklands Museum, Weybridge, near Addlestone -
The Museum's vision is to inspire people to shape their future through inventiveness, expertise and a sense of adventure. The vision was derived from an examination of Brooklands’ intangible heritage – ‘the Spirit of Brooklands’ - and considering what it would mean to share that spirit with future generations. The aim is for Brooklands to be ‘best in class’ and an internationally recognised ‘living museum’. By that they mean that the Museum will be a place of activity: they demonstrate their aircraft and cars by running engines and provide rides on Test Hill and the Banking; they continue to develop their learning and family activities for all ages, with volunteers who will interact with visitors to ensure that they get the most out of their visits. The site is dynamic with constantly developing exhibitions and displays and they are not afraid to try new things!


RHS Gardens, Wisley, near Addlestone -
The Royal Horticultural Society was given Wisley in 1903, although at that time only a small part of the 24ha (60 acres) estate was actually cultivated as a garden, the remainder being wooded farmland. The original garden was the creation of George Fergusson Wilson - businessman, scientist, inventor and keen gardener and a former Treasurer of the Society. In 1878 he purchased the site and established the 'Oakwood experimental garden', with the idea of making 'difficult plants grow successfully'. The garden acquired a reputation for its collections of lilies, gentians, Japanese irises, primulas and water plants. Oakwood (formerly known as the Wild Garden) is the direct descendant of that original garden and despite changes is still true to the original concept. Wisley is easily accessible by train, car, bus and bike. Parking is free and those visitors who use bus or rail receive a discount on the entrance fee on presentation of the travel ticket

Addlestone is a town in Surrey, England, just within the M25 18.6 miles (29.9 km) southwest of London. Addlestone is home to the ancient Crouch Oak tree, under which it is said Queen Elizabeth I picnicked. It also marked the edge of Windsor Forest before the forest was cut down to build towns. Chertsey is the adjoining town, in which it was historically included, and Addlestone railway station is on the Chertsey Branch Line. It is also home to parts of St George's College, Weybridge.

Addlestone is a large village which owing to its size is generally referred to as a town, 18.6 miles (29.9 km) southwest of London and 9.8 miles (15.8 km) north-by-northeast Guildford; the town constitutes the administrative centre of the borough of Runnymede of which it is the largest settlement. Narrow green buffers separate the town of Weybridge and town of Chertsey and a larger green buffer including a farm, M25 and a golf course separates the village of Ottershaw. No fixed southern boundary with New Haw exists which has had signs at various points but not on all approaches.
