A little bit of history
John Lennon and Ringo Star both lived in Weybridge during the late 1960s. John's son Julian went to school with a certain Lucy O'Donnell. His nursery school drawings of her inspired the song 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds'.

Weybridges' Span estates were set up in the late 50s by developer Geoffrey Townsend and architect Eric Lyons. The idea was to create affordable, attractive, Scandinavian-style modernist houses and flats. Today they have a cult following as the Habitat of house building and still offer a more affordable way to live in this desirable area. The novelist Forster and his mother lived at Monument Green where he wrote his famous novels, A Passage to India, Howards End and the fittingly titled, A Room with a View.
Weybridge has a wide variety of shops. Be it the latest fashions from Jaeger, White Stuff, Fat Face and Phase 8 to furniture at Antiques at Church House, you'll be sure to find what you need.
