The perfect getaway
Nestled in the Surrey Hills, with rolling countryside and woodland on all sides, Dorking is the perfect escape from busy everyday life. This charming market town sits on the London commuter belt, a 50-minute train journey from the capital - but with so much natural beauty around, you’d never think you’re so close to the city.
Take the Deepdene Trail
Just 15 minutes from the centre of Dorking lies the Deepdene Trail, a new walking route that takes you through the Surrey countryside and into the beautiful gardens of the Deepdene Estate, which has been privately owned since it was built in the 17th century. You can also visit Nearby Box Hill and walk to the summit for stunning views of the Surrey Hills. We won’t blame you if you decide to roll back down the hill afterwards...
A vibrant market town
Aside from its striking countryside surroundings, the town of Dorking itself has plenty to offer. Stroll down the high street and take in the assortment of cosy cafes and quirky boutiques along the way. And don’t forget to visit Denbies Wine Estate - situated on the outskirts of the town and boasting 265 acres of vines, it hosts regular tours and wine tastings. Planning a trip to Dorking?
