Shopping and Services
Dorking has been a centre for trade and commerce for hundreds of years, slowly evolving into the town we know today. It is not difficult to imagine as you walk through the town, the cries of street traders selling their wares, cattle tied to the railings that still line the High Street, merchants clinching deals in the numerous public houses and the raucous Fair Days when horses were raced up and down the length of the town.
The evolution of Dorking has been kind to the town centre. Much of the original character survives, whilst containing businesses serving the needs of the 21st Century market. The town boasts a unique mix of well-known High Street names and independent retailers offering an individual selection of goods and services. The town's three main trading streets of High Street, West Street and South Street are complemented by a small open-air shopping centre, St Martins Walk, conveniently adjacent to the towns' main car park and easily accessed from the High Street.
The Dorking Directory contains a full listing of all the businesses and services available in the town centre, together with contact details. Free copies of these brochures can be found throughout the town and at the council offices.
