Guildford is just six miles north on the A3100, while the major A3 trunk road from London to Portsmouth is within easy reach, linking the area directly to the capital and the M25.

Godalming Railway Station is on the Portsmouth to London Waterloo line, with regular services to Guildford, Woking and London. Waterloo can be reached by rail in about 50 minutes. For air travel Heathrow Airport is an easy 32 miles and Gatwick is 42.
