Waverley neighbours the boroughs of Guildford and Mole Valley in Surrey, and the counties of West Sussex and Hampshire. The borough is named after Waverley Abbey, near Farnham, the earliest Cistercian monastery in Britain. The borough also contains Blackheath Common an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Waverley is a Wealden borough, bounded to the north by the Hog's Back section of the North Downs. It is one of the most heavily wooded boroughs in England. It takes its name from Waverley Abbey, whose ruins are within the district (unlike local wandering side Waverley Cricket Club, who are named after the Waverley Arms pub in Farnham and who have used the name since 1952).
It was recently voted, in a Channel 4 poll, the 4th best place to live in the UK
