Wokingham station lies at the junction of the Waterloo to Reading Line and the North Downs Line, in the Royal County of Berkshire. Originally built in 1849, the station has seen several major redevelopments over the years, including a new signal box in 1933 and an all-new station building in 1973. This redevelopment has continued into the present day, with a recent £6 million refurbishment including the construction of a new building, footpath and clock tower.
Wokingham’s regular service between London Waterloo and Reading runs every 30 minutes, with additional services during weekday peak times – there is also a an hourly semi-fast service from the station to Gatwick Airport.
The town has a small, charming centre, and it was once one of the largest producers of silk during the Tudor period. Some the houses involved in the industry – with taller ground floors to house looms – can still be spotted around the town today.
