Lying within the Greater London Urban Area, Addlestone is the administrative town of Runnymede village of Surrey. It is home to an ancient oak which is thought to be more than a thousand years old and is called the Crouch Oak. The Crouch Oak once served as Addlestone’s boundary to Windsor Forest. It is one of the oldest trees in England and local legends claim that Elizabeth I once had a picnic under the branches of this ancient oak.
Within this busy local town is the Station Road that serves as the main high street. It holds a mix of different local shops, small business offices and one big supermarket. Addlestone also showcases a number of beautiful and famous parks and open spaces that you and your family or friends can go to for a short or longer weekend trip. As you explore the area, you will meet a lot of friendly people and the town gets even more interesting.
The vast land in Addlestone accounts for the number of golf courses such as the Abbey Moor Golf Club that was mentioned in H.G. Wells’ book entitled The War of the Worlds. Previously known as the Addlestone Golf Links, Abbey Moor Golf Club is a privately owned nine-hole golf course situated just off junction 11 of M25. The golf course offers a relaxed ambience for a round of golf and eating out.
