Where in the world is Weybridge? In the borough of Elmbridge, the County of Surrey, Weybridge is surrounded to the north by Shepperton, to the east by Hersham and Walton-on-Thames, to the south by Wisley and Woodham, and to the west by Addlestone and Byfleet. Within in the London orbital, the M25, Weybridge is easily accessible at junction 11 for Chertsey and junction 10, which also meets the A3. The M3 skirts north of the area. See the map below for current borders.
Centuries ago Weybridge was a hamlet, part of the Byfleet manor in the parish of Chertsey. In the fourteenth century, Weybridge became a parish in its own right. By 1898, Weybridge had grown into a town of sufficient size to govern many of its own affairs. In 1933, the national government forced the unwilling towns of Weybridge and Walton together with the village of Hersham, adding to it the half of Brooklands racetrack which had been part of Byfleet. Since that time Weybridge has absorbed areas previously considered part of Byfleet and Hersham.
