A settlement has stood in the area that now makes up Walton-on-Thames since Celtic times. Some have suggested that this was the place where Julius Caesar forded the River Thames on his second invasion of Britain.
It later made up part of the Anglo-Saxon quasi-administrative district known as Elmbridge hundred. By the Norman era, the town was noted as “Waletona” in the Domesday Book of 1086.
Walton-on-Thames was, centuries later, the home of John Bradshaw, the judge who presided at Charles I’s trial after the English Civil War.
During the First World War, injured Commonwealth soldiers from New Zealand were hospitalised nearby. The local names of New Zealand Avenue and Wellington Pub, as well as a small memorial, stand testament to their outstanding contribution.
Today, visiting an Afternoon Tea Walton-on-Thames establishment is an excellent choice before or after soaking up the town’s rich history.
