Cycling and Walking
Dorking is not a large town and the centre is easily accessibly by foot. Visitors in wheelchairs and those with a visual impairment will find that adjustments have been made to make the town as accessible as possible to disabled people. Seating is also provided in locations within the town to allow pedestrians to rest and enjoy the activity of the town around them.
Open spaces on Cotmandene or Meadowbank are within a few minutes walk of the town centre and provide good gentle walking and places to picnic, with views to the hills. Other walks are available into the countryside in all directions using the extensive network of footpaths and bridleways. Many of the attractions around the town are easily accessible by foot and visitors are encouraged to leave their car behind and explore the countryside in a more leisurely way. Maps and leaflets of walks and footpaths are available from the Visitor Information Centre.
Facilities for cyclists both within and around the town are improving. Cycle parking is available throughout the town and there are cycle paths to the north and east linking Leatherhead and Brockham. The Surrey Cycleway passes close to the town and provides and excellent series of circular routes, mostly on road. A family cycle route in Norbury Park is a lovely trip out in glorious surroundings.
