It is with huge regret that we to have to advise you that tours of the Dorking Caves have been suspended until the end of this season.  This is due to engineering work by Sutton and East Surrey Water on Victoria Terrace.   We apologise for the inconvenience and disappointment caused.

Tours will resume as normal in 2019 with our Open Day Tours on Saturday 30th March and then on the last Saturday of every month. Tickets will be on sale from 1st March. Look forward to seeing you then. 

For all tours – meet at the entrance to the South Street Caves (next to the War Memorial) 10 minutes before your tour is due to start. No physical tickets will be issued.

Group Tours are available on any date to suit you and will run to October 2018, and can take place between the hours of 9am and 8pm. Why not get a group of families or friends together, to celebrate a birthday or special event? Organisations also very welcome.

The Group leader should contact Graham Speed by email on caves@dorkingmuseum.org.uk to arrange a date and time.
