Although Godalming is a little over 30 miles south-west of London, it boasts fantastic transport links that ensure you'll arrive in the city in super-quick time. Getting to the nearby airports of Gatwick and Heathrow is also easy. Whether you're a fan of going on holiday as often as possible, or you're a frequent flyer due to work commitments, the proximity to these two major airports is a huge advantage of living in the area.
Godalming isn't particularly famous or well known in its own right, but an interesting little known fact is that Godalming was the first place in the world to have its electricity supply installed, way back in 1881. When you think about how much we rely on electricity today, that's a pretty remarkable story! There are plenty of landmarks for locals and tourists to enjoy in the Godalming area - as you'd expect of any historic market town. Two of the most famous landmarks in the area are the parish church and of course the iconic "Pepperpot" town hall.
Godalming is home to a market every Friday where you can purchase everything from locally grown produce to antiques. The shops and businesses found in Godalming encompass everything from convenience stores and supermarkets through to solicitors, pubs and restaurants. Godalming has everything you could possibly need in a market town - the fact it's located so close to the UK's capital city is a big bonus.
