Weybridge Lives & Times

by John Szepietowski

Weybridge and its surrounding areas have become the setting for the modern day country home accommodating the rich and famous seeking a secure, exclusive environment close to London

Situated between the UK’s two largest airports – Heathrow and Gatwick – with a wealth of bars and restaurants where residents may socialise relatively anonymously and free from paparazzi. It is also a place where residents’ children have access to some of the best private and state schools within a few miles radius of their homes. Even with the considerable development that has taken place in and around Weybridge it still retains a number of distinctive and interesting features. Not only interesting features but interesting people who have made Weybridge their home such as TV stars like Eric Sykes to stellar pop stars like John Lennon and Cliff Richard. Weybridge has been the birthplace for some such as famous conductor Sir Colin Davis and the actress Jacqueline Bisset and the new home for sports stars such as Chelsea’s goalkeeper Petr Cech and former home of striker Didier Drogba.
