A Historic Market Town nestling in the Surrey Hills
A visit to the charming market town of Dorking is a special experience. Surrounded by the beautiful Surrey Hills, you can catch glimpses of the wooded hills and open downland as you walk along the historic streets of the town.
Since medieval times Dorking has been a busy market place, with the town constantly evolving to serve the needs of its customers.
It’s a joy to wander around Dorking discovering arts and crafts shops, boutiques, art galleries, jewellers, interiors and furnishing specialists sitting alongside eclectic vintage shops and fabulous antique centres.
Relax in any of the excellent cafes, restaurants and pubs and enjoy a respite from the pleasures of shopping, browsing and sightseeing.
