Visit Dorking and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Dorking, Surrey. An ancient market town, and a good centre for walking, delightfully set between Box Hill and the Downs rising to the north. It is notable for the number of fine modern dwellings that are being built in the district; Dorking has an increasing population of residents who travel to work in London. There are also a number of old buildings but the Parish Church of St Martin dates only from the latter part of the 19th century; its 210-ft-high spire is a monument to Bishop Wilberforce. Two of the older inns are the White Horse, with a 400-year-old exterior, and the Red Lion, perhaps even older, which was known as the Cardinal's Hat in medieval times.
The poet and novelist George Meredith lived in a house at the foot of Box Hill, and John Keats finished writing his Endymion while staying at the Burford Bridge Hotel in 1817.
