A beautiful borough

Our borough is an attractive and interesting place to work with several town centres, good places to live, plenty of history and easy travel links to London and Reading.

Runnymede is in the north west of leafy Surrey and is famous as the place where King John and the Barons sealed the Magna Carta in 1215.

In the 21st century, Runnymede is an important centre for business and has several national and international companies within its boundaries, making it one of the more significant locations for commerce and employment in Surrey.

The Borough is home to Royal Holloway, University of London, Wentworth Golf Club, as well as Thorpe Park and the £19m Egham Orbit leisure centre and spa.

The Council places great importance in facilitating economic prosperity as well as providing a good quality of life for people living and working in the Borough.
