Detailed overview

England has many wonderful small market towns with a plethora of gorgeous buildings creating a lovely atmosphere whilst meandering around.  The delightful English market town of Dorking is set against the backdrop of the Surrey Hills and it’s thriving High Street comprises many Georgian and Victorian buildings and makes for an interesting hour or two to meander along.  It is home to numerous antique shops as well as the Dorking Museum and Heritage Centre (£2 entry) which includes paintings from 18th and 19th Century local artists.  There are plenty of cafes for refreshments.  There is an option to be dropped at Denbies Wine Estate for a tour (or just lunch and a browse around their gift shop), or visit Leith Hill Place (National Trust £6), a modest hill-side house, it is mainly dedicated to Vaughan Williams who composed some of his great music here.  The house is in the process of being restored.  There are great views from the tearoom terrace!

We can organise any tickets for you, or you can buy tickets yourself on the day.
