Great Bookham and Little Bookham were mentioned in the Domesday Book; originally two distinct settlements, they have become interconnected over the centuries. The villages are surrounded by common land and share a railway station, along with an excellent array of local amenities.

Bookham Common is home to the historic estate of Polesden Lacey, which dates back to the 17th century. Now owned by the National Trust, the 1,000 acres are ideal for long walks.
