Anyone going out to a party has a range of options for buying gifts and cards, before making themselves look good at the nail bar or one of Wey Hill’s hairdressers or barbers. If the party is fancy dress, then you could pop along to the Hokey Cokey and pick up a costume.

Wey Hill is fortunate enough to have a green at either end – Lion Green and St Christopher’s Green. The larger of the two, Lion Green hosts regular entertainments for all the family to enjoy. Some of the highlights are the Haslemere Fringe Festival, The Wave, Dylan’s Ice Cream Festival, Haslemere Food Festival and a circus and funfair. The look of Wey Hill is also enhanced at particular times of year with colourful flowers during the summer months, thanks to Haslemere in Bloom, and some of the best Christmas lights for miles around at the festive season.
Wey Hill is blessed with having a large amount of car parking nearby. Towards the train station, there is the Pay and Display at Weydown Road, and the free to use Fairground Car Park. During the week these are predominantly occupied by commuters, although spaces can usually always be found, while at the weekend there is ample parking. For those using M&S or Tesco at the other end of Wey Hill, the supermarkets provide their own parking facilities. Anyone just looking to pop into one of the shops can use the on road parking.
