Dorking Leisure - Picture by Royston Williamson


The countryside around Dorking is acknowledged to be one of the finest for walking and rambling, with degrees of difficulty extending from an assault on the steep footpath of Box Hill to a gentle stroll to the village pub.

Riding is popular on the many bridleways that connect the parklands, commons and woodlands.

Cycling is also permitted on bridleways and there are designated cycle paths linking town and countryside.

Golf and fishing combine a recreation with some of the most restful and beautiful places surrounding Dorking.
