A busy riverside coaching town in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Egham now offers a pedestrianised town centre, making it a favoured shopping destination. The beautiful Royal Holloway building is of national historic interest, modelled on a French Chateau, now part of the University of London.
Egham offers an exciting choice of bars and restaurants. In the last year, there have been new properties built on the out-skirts of Egham and in Egham town centre. Egham is very popular with families due to the great schools in the area. Hidden away behind the town centre, you will find many semi-detached and terraced Victorian cottages and villas.
There is however a variety of property, ranging from small studio apartments to large detached family homes. The population for the Egham area is approximately 26000.
With the majority of its primary schools rated as ‘Good’ and one rated ‘Outstanding’ Egham offers plenty of choices when it comes to choosing a primary school for your child.
