West Byfleet began life in the Edwardian and Victorian eras, with the development of large houses and small holdings, close to the Basingstoke and Wey canals and the train station to enable commuting.
Until the middle of the 19th Century, the area was largely woodland. Much of the farmland was used for the growing of flowers for their perfume, mainly used in soap. Some of the local roads still bear names that reflect this.
Today, West Byfleet remains sought after for commuters and local families as it retains its village atmosphere and green, leafy avenues.
At the heart of West Byfleet there is the train station and a variety of independent shops and restaurants as well as a large Waitrose.
There is a village hall and green recreation areas for the local community and there is a drive for the community to take an active involvement in the development of the area.
For those who enjoy activities, the area is served by the local golf club and Top Golf driving range. Nearby is Mercedes Benz World, Brooklands Museum and the Bus Museum for car and plane enthusiasts. There are also an abundance of sports and leisure clubs, food fairs and community events in the local and surrounding areas.
West Byfleet is close to several well regarded primary schools and nurseries and the nearest secondary school is Fullbrook School and Sixth Form. There are also several notable private schools in the surrounding area.
Whilst West Byfleet retains its village feel, it is located close to Woking for shopping, theatre, cinema and art galleries and still there is easy access to London on the train. West Byfleet also offers easy access to Junction 10 of the M25.
