Haslemere is a quaint market town nestled in Waverley, Surrey. In many ways, it fits the stereotype of a traditional English market town perfectly: It's home to a bustling high street where weekly markets are still held - and it's a hotspot for fresh, local produce.
If you find yourself at a loose end in Haslemere then the good news is that there's plenty to do and see. A visit to the Haslemere Museum is the perfect way to spend an afternoon - there's fun for all the family. Haslemere is also popular with people visiting from London and the surrounding areas thanks to the well-maintained paths and beautiful scenery. Haslemere is a great place to go walking and be at one with nature - every weekend Haslemere sees a small influx of people looking to take advantage of the beautiful scenery and pleasant paths that the area has to offer.
Transport links to London are particularly strong - there's a direct service between Haslemere's station and London Waterloo. This strong rail link with the capital makes Haslemere a really popular place for commuters to live when working in London and the surrounding area. Being such a short distance from London, if Haslemere's shops aren't quite up to your high standards then a trip to the iconic shopping districts of Kensington and Oxford Street are just a short distance away.
Haslemere is an extremely pleasant place to visit and live - it's no wonder the area is so popular with those looking for a location that's close to London but a little more laid back than the capital city.
