The arrival of rail in 1849 turned the delightful market town of Dorking into a popular choice for daytrippers, and by the early 20th century, the town had expanded considerably. Now served by three stations, Dorking is still admired as a quaint market town, but it provides connections to nearby Box Hill, part of the North Downs, with its tremendous views over the Mole Gap - along which trains to Dorking run. The new station, opened in 1982, is on the outskirts of this predominantly commuter-serving town, but that's not to say that Dorking central isn't worth the short bus ride from the station. Visitors will encounter multiple art galleries, jewellers, and florists as they stroll the town, and West Street is a must-visit, with more antique shops than anyone could need. Be sure to pick up some shin pads on your way through the High Street -for decades, Dorking hosted an iconic game of street football every Shrove Tuesday, and you never know when such traditions might stir back up.
