Woking’s new retail, residential and leisure destination, Victoria Place Woking, opened its doors in March 2022.
The 125,000 square feet of new premium retail space features 429 residential studio, one-bed and two-bed apartments in two iconic sky-high towers, a new four star Hilton hotel, two public plazas and new parking facilities.
Taking centre stage in Henry Plaza is the purpose built Italia Conti Performing Arts Academy. The state of the art performance space offers 48,000 square feet over two floors, with 24 state of the art rehearsal studios, one to one coaching rooms, gymnasium, theatre, TV and film suite, and recording studio. Neighbouring Woking SuperBowl offers the latest entertainment activities including 14 lanes of 10-pin bowling, laser quest and arcade style gaming.
Bringing a convenient and modern way of living to the town centre is the adjoining build-to-rent apartments, called The Marches. The 34 and 30 storey towers offer jaw-dropping views and easy access to the borough’s countryside, all within a quick commute to central London.
To accommodate visitors to Victoria Place Woking, a new 1,556 capacity car park features ticketless entry, 78 electric vehicle charge points (rising to 200 charge points as demand increases and funded by an award of £166,090 from the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles), 80 disabled parking bays, 54 parent and toddler parking bays, and an exclusive M&S ‘click & collect’ area.
Incorporated into the design of the new car park is adorned with a stunning living wall featuring an impressive 475,000 individual plants – all carefully selected to improve air quality by trapping pollutants.
The new, yet to open, Hilton hotel will feature 189 guest rooms, including 12 suites, as well as a ballroom for up to 500 people and 7,000 square feet of meeting room space, adding to the town’s already impressive business offer.
Victoria Place Woking is a joint venture between Woking Borough Council and shopping centre owner and investor, Moyallen Group.
