Nestling amidst the Surrey Hills countryside, with a population of 20,000, Dorking still retains all the features of a bustling market town. People have settled here since Roman times and many famous people were born or lived in the surrounds including Laurence Olivier, Oliver Reed and Eric Clapton. Historic West Street is the centre of the renowned Antiques Centre and the ancient Kings Arms whilst Dickens stayed at the White Horse in the wide High Street. The surrounding countryside is truly stunning with Ranmore, Box Hill and Leith Hill (the highest point in the South East of England). Westcott, Holmbury St Mary, Abinger, are all delightful villages with historic inns just perfect for a pint.
