Guided Walks Around Dorking

Guided Walks Around Dorking

Dorking Walks Team

The Dorking walks team can offer a variety of walks taking in the different aspects of the town’s history and heritage.

Explore the history of Dorking through its urban landscape, following its development from settlement at the foot of the chalk downs to flourishing market town and turnpike staging post, taking in the old foundry (now the Museum), the only known surviving house of a pilgrim father, the Cotmandene, site of a historic early depiction of the game of cricket, and the coaching inn that features in Dickens’ Pickwick Papers.

The Museum is currently booking the following guided walks for individuals:

The Deepdene Trail

Deepdene Trail Heritage Open Weekend 2017

Tours will leave from the entrance to The Deepdene Trail and last an hour and a half, including access to the Hope Mausoleum.

Deepdene Trail Heritage Open Weekend 2017

Walks can be tailored for groups including, our Pubs Walk, the Deepdene Walk and our Words and Music walk. For details of group bookings, please have a look here.

 

Thank you and your team for giving us such interesting guided walks on Saturday morning. It was refreshing to be lead with so much enthusiasm. Your love of Dorking was clear to see. We can now all answer the question ‘Why Dorking?’
