Hotels in Egham

Egham is one of the most historic counties in the Surrey area, with a central location and excellent transport links to London. This picturesque town is known for its history and range of eating establishments, as well as a local show which entices visitors from across the region.

A legacy which stretches back over the centuries

Egham has been recorded as a settlement many times throughout British history, and is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Egeham, when it was held by nearby Chertsey Abbey. Perhaps the town's greatest claim to fame, however, is its role in laying the foundations of British democracy. Runnymede, the site of the signing of the Magna Carta in 1215, is located just down the road from the town, and there is a memorial at Cooper's Hill commemorating the event.

If you would like to learn more about the history of Egham throughout the ages, the Egham Museum offers a fascinating look at the enduring legacy of the town. Located on the first floor of the Literary Institute on the High Street, the museum offers exhibitions relating to the Magna Carta, as well as the town's wartime role.

An educational centre with a vibrant culture

Today, Egham is perhaps better known as a hub for the area's educational institutions. Royal Holloway College is located to the south of the town, and the student influence on the town is evident in the many pubs and shops which give the town centre its thriving atmosphere.

Perhaps the best time to visit the town is during the famous Egham Royal Show. This annual event has been running for over 150 years, and showcases the best horticulture and crafts from across the region. With displays ranging from Wild West shows to escapology and marching bands, it promises to be a fun day out for all the family.

Good food, outstanding hospitality

The Monkey's Forehead in the town is a prime eating destination, thanks to its range of hearty meals and local events. In terms of accommodation, Egham hotels provide a range of options suited to all budgets. A good bet is the Runnymede-on-Thames, which overlooks the river and attracts loyal customers, thanks to its attentive staff and superb spa facilities.
