Woking, Surrey (薩里郡)


Woking (pronounced as Woe-king) is located in the northwest of Surrey. It is a popular commuter town given Woking is at the edge of southwest of London. The fast train only takes 28 minutes into London Waterloo station.

Surrey is known to be one of the wealthier home counties and is located in the South East of England. Home counties are counties of England which surrounds London.

Guildford is a nearby large town which is 21 minutes away by car and 8 minutes by train from Woking. Some of the top primary and secondary schools (state and private) in the UK are in Guildford along with the University of Surrey. (Rank 59th in the UK 2020 from the Time Higher Education)

There is a community of Hong Kong people in Woking who have moved here in the 80s and 90s. On Saturday, children can go to St John’s Baptist Roman Catholic Comprehensive School for Chinese lessons (Cantonese, Mandarin, Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese).

Woking(發音為Woe-king)位於薩里郡(Surrey)的西北部。由於Woking位於倫敦西南邊緣,所以是一個受歡迎的通勤城鎮。乘撘火車(快車) 僅需28分鐘即可到達倫敦滑鐵盧 (Waterloo) 火車站。

薩里郡(Surrey)位於英格蘭東南部。作為一個 home county, 薩里郡是一個較為富裕的郡。Home Counties 就是圍繞倫敦的外圍的郡。

Guildford是鄰近的大城鎮,距離Woking車程21分鐘,乘火車8分鐘。 英國一些頂級中小學 (公校和私校)和University of Surrey 都是在Guildford。2020年英國排名第59位(Time Higher Education)。

由80年代和90年代開始,已經有一班香港人移居到 Woking組成一個社區。逢星期六 ,小朋友可以去St John’s Baptist Roman Catholic Comprehensive School上中文班 (有廣東話,普通話,繁體中文和簡體中文學)。
