    About Bookham
    image cannot be displayed

    Bookham still retains a village atmosphere with an excellent range of shops in the High Street and Church Road whilst sporting pastimes are well catered for locally including a number of golf clubs and the Leatherhead Leisure Centre.  

    Local schools are much in demand particularly the Howard of Effingham secondary school as well as the Eastwick and Dawnay infant and junior schools.

    Bookham's charm is enhanced by the glorious countryside which surrounds the village (much of which is owned by The National Trust) while commuters are well served by the A3, the M25, mainline stations at Bookham and Effingham Junction and good access to both Heathrow and Gatwick Airports.

    All this combines to make Bookham a thoroughly pleasant and attractive part of the south east in which to live.
