    Dorking – 8 Quirky Facts

    1. A Doodle Doo!
      Dorking’s official emblem features a 5-toed cockerel and dates back to Roman times.
    2. Fine Vintage
      The UK’s largest vineyard (Denbies) sits just outside the town. Sounds like a good reason to do a bit of grape inspired research to us. Cheers!
    3. Pickwicked
      Charles Dickens finished writing Pickwick Papers while staying in Dorking.
    4. Mayflower
      The town is home to the only surviving house of one of the Mayflower Pilgrims. William Mullins left the house to sail for America in 1620.
    5. Sporting Pedigree
      Dorking was famous for cricket during the 18th century, it was also home to riotous, all day football matches (although no one kicked the heavy ball as it was heaved through the streets by dozens of fighting locals) held every Shrove Tuesday, a common pastime in many English towns during the period.
    6. The Dorking Cock
      In honour of Dorking’s emblem, a 10ft silver cockerel was unveiled in the town (well, a roundabout to be precise) in 2007. It’s occasionally decorated in keeping with national and local events and celebrations.
    7. Girl on the Train
      Actress Emily Blunt (Girl on the Train, The Young Victoria, Gnomeo & Juliet) went to school in Dorking.
    8. Ghost of Woolies
      Before the company disappeared, many staff claimed to have seen a staff in the Woolworth’s store. Probably just after the pic ‘n’ mix.

    About Dorking

    Close to London, Dorking is a charming town with a village feel. While there are direct train routes to London, the slower duration (compared to other locations) means Dorking isn’t a mass commuter town, giving it a charming feel.

    In keeping with a country-life feel there are a number of events throughout the year, plus small quirky streets, historical buildings (one even has its own ghost, allegedly!) and a rich selection of antique shops.

    There’s also a famous vineyard and plenty of country side right on the doorstep. Dorking has it all.


    Locally known as Antique Alley, there’s a thriving antiques district plus a healthy number of independent shops for any committed shoppers. Foodies will also find plenty to enjoy, artisan bakeries, delis, farm shops and eco-wholefood shops all offer tempting wares as well as excellent cafes and restaurants both in the town and surrounding area.

    A varied calendar events throughout the year include food and art festivals, a military show plus the Bonfire Night celebrations which are a particular highlight.


    Dorking is close enough to London to make it convenient for days out and trips to the West End yet the town doesn’t have a fast train (53 minutes to Waterloo) so doesn’t have the commuter struggles of other towns in the area. The A24 which runs through the heart of Dorking runs to Worthing on the south coast and up to the M25 near Leatherhead to the north. Gatwick is the nearest airport, a 27-minute drive.
