Explore the Town

Sitting on the River Wey and bounded to the north by the River Thames, Weybridge has many wonderful paths for walkers to stretch their legs.

After a busy day’s exploring, there’s nothing like a cosy pub to sit back and relax in as you enjoy the delicious food and drinks. 

Visit Mercedez-Benz World 

Whether you’re a motor fan or not, Mercedez-Benz Worldoffers some amazing attractions and exhibitions that are well worth a visit. 

You and your family can learn about the history of the automobile, take each other on in the Accelerate interactive racing experience and give the young ones a feel for driving with the driving simulator. 

Of course, you’ve got the added thrill of learning about Mercedes’ F1 team and the work they do to keep Britain’s Lewis Hamilton winning championships. 

London Bus Museum

Just as iconic as a Mercedes F1 car is the London bus, and you can learn all about them too in Weybridge. The first London bus route opened in 1829 as a horse-drawn carriage, and whilst changing significantly since, has been a constant part of London life ever since. 

The London bus plays such a big part in local culture, and it’s amazing to learn all about these iconic vehicles at the London Bus Museum

Elmbridge Museum 

If you want your history to go back a little further than 1829 then drop by Elmbridge Museum and learn about the local history. 

Weybridge is mentioned in the Doomsday Book of 1086 and has had an illustrious history throughout. In 1537, Henry VIII built Oatlands Palace in the local area, where he married his fifth wife, Catherine Howard, so there is lots of Tudor history on show. 

Elmbridge Museum is a great place to get a feel for the history of this beautiful town and has some great exhibits to keep everyone entertained.
