Feature your event


Date: May 25 - October 14 | 2017
Location: Dorking Museum West Street Dorking

The Museum’s summer exhibition plots the growth in the number of pubs from the earliest known records through to its peak in the 19th century and subsequent decline. Which were the most important public houses and what other roles did they play in the lives of residents and travellers? A large scale map shows locations together with old photographs, paintings and drawings of how they looked in their heyday.

Families welcome – pub-sign drawing competition for children, play some old pub games.

New 140-page book on pubs of Dorking available for the exhibition.

New guided walks taking in former and current pub sites in Dorking.
