    Woking – 6 Quirky Facts

    1. War of the Wells
      HG Wells moved to Woking with his family in 1895 and it was while living in the town that he wrote War of the Worlds, published in 1898. He used Woking as the setting of the alien invasion. Clearly the aliens weren’t impressed and destroyed the town (or perhaps Wells was just venting his council tax fury?). In 1998, to celebrate the book’s centenary, a statue of one of the aliens was unveiled in the town centre by Carol Vordeman.
    2. Woking’s Famous Faces
      Famous people to have lived in the town include; Delia Smith (TV chef), Sean Walsh (comedian), James Cracknell (Olympic rower), Sir Patrick Moore (astronomer), Kazuo Ishiguro (novelist), Harry Hill (comedian), Susie Dent (Countdown), Rick Parfitt (Status Quo) and Lady Emma Hamilton (Horatio Nelson’s infamous lover).
    3. A Town Called… Woking
      The Jam had a string of hits including the iconic “A Town Called Malice”. The band members grew up and formed the band in Woking. Paul Weller used to hold open jam sessions and anyone who turned up was in the band that day. Eventually the three main protagonists started gigging and the name stuck. In later years they dispelled the myth that Woking was the town called ‘Malice’, “It could be anywhere. I think it’d be unfair to say it was just about Woking.” said Rick Buckler, the band’s drummer.
    4. Spice Girls
      Another famous band to have learnt their trade in Woking was the Spice Girls. Having been put together, the girl group rehearsed in Woking’s Youth Arts Centre before going on to find global fame (that’s what they really, really want!).
    5. First Mosque
      Britain’s first mosque was built in Woking in 1889. Today it is still a place of worship and also a grade II listed monument.
    6. McClaren
      One of the town’s biggest employers is the car manufacturer and F1 racing team McClaren. The racing team’s former boss Ron Dennis also lived in the town.
