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 countryside right on the doorstep. Dorking has it all.

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.
