My GF lives in Woking! Went there last night and we had to keep changing pubs trying to find the most affordable place to eat. The cheapest we found (which wasn't wetherspoons) was burger and chips for £10! Still expensive but much better than other places, I couldn't believe it tbh. My local does great meals for about £6.

Anyway poshest place would have to be Oxshott for me, the houses are massive! Fav place on your list would be Guilford.

They've now knocked down the house were she grew up (Where my Granny and GrandDad where Still living) to make the enterance to a new estate -_- Urbanisation?

Having lived, worked or gone to school in about half those places, here's my ordering, from poshest to least...

Godalming
Farnham
Weybridge
Oxshott
Cobham
Guildford
Haslemere
Dorking
Epsom
Leatherhead
Esher
Virginia Water
Reigate
Thames Ditton
Woking

That said this is all totally arbitrary.. firstly the description 'posh' is so vague - do we mean old money or new money? Country estates and racketty old cars or huge modern mansions and brand new Jags? Secondly - everywhere's got it's posh parts. Even Woking

Haslemere because of it's proximity to the country's longest tunnel.

I miss Surrey so bad xD. Probably Guildford, but all of those places have dodgy areas and lovely areas.

I live in Epsom and it's full of old people, charity shops and mental homes. Not very posh, really.

I'd say Oxshott is pretty damn posh - a lot of £million homes around the area. Loads of footballers live in the area. Private roads galore...

Virginia Water followed by Haslemere.

Half the houses in VW back onto Wentworth. I remember doing some work down there, and going to the parade of shops. There was a bakery where everyone shopping was a nanny or housekeeper, and the Off Licence had Buy 6 get 1 free on Veuve Cliquot NV, instead of the usual offers on Stella.

Haslemere is nice too, although it does come across a bit Aga Lout. The Lythe Hill Hotel in Haslemere was Henry VIII's favourite love nest, and the Poacher's Pocket restaurant does a pretty amazing Sunday Lunch.

I was going to say I always found Virginia Water a bit nouveau but didn't want to offend anyone - but then I saw your 'get one free on Veuve' comment and decided it was for certain :p:

Haslemere, to me, seems like one of those picture perfect and always prosperous Surrey country villages that you only read about in fantasy land. But, there's no denying the fact it is leafy, green and beautiful. Guildford, while very posh in many parts, seems more urban to me--almost like a miniature Kensington and Chelsea. Dorking has pretty surrounding country side, but there's a nouveau riche element about the place that can be distasteful. Not as new money crass as Esher, Weybridge or Virginia Water, but I'd say it is dominated more by corporate moguls and managers who comute to the City everyday, as opposed to high-brow, well-educated people employed in the loftier professions like medicine, law and academia.

By 'posh' do you mean well educated, wealthy, and not full of chavs/ethnics?

If so, I would move there in a flash.

Such snobbery towards those who are better off that you are, isnt a good trait.

Don't come to live here, if you wish to live among friendly people. I've lived here for over 30 years and hate it.
