Dorking is an historic market town between the North Downs and the Weald, sitting at the foot of the Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty of Box Hill and Ranmore, with the River Mole running nearby. The town is mentioned in the Doomesday Book and became known for its sporting pursuits: the area of Cotmandene was famous for cricket in the 18th century and a riotous, all-day, street-wide football game was played on Shrove Tuesday until the early 20th century, and the London 2012 Olympics cycle race covered much of Dorking and Box Hill, commemorated by the Cycle Race Sculpture on the A24 roundabout adjacent to the world-famous vineyard of Denbies.
The town is well-known for its range of antique shops specialising in furniture, objet d’art from the medieval period, Art Deco of the 20th century in West Street, and featuring beautiful listed 16th century buildings. It is also the location of William Mullins’ former residence. Mullins sailed on the Mayflower in 1620 and his home is believed to be the only known home of the Pilgrim Father to have survived intact.
There have been a number of famous people that have resided in Dorking including E M Forster, Leslie Howard, actor Laurence Olivier (who was born in Dorking), composer Ralph Vaughan Williams, novelist Daniel Defoe, builder Thomas Cubitt and Major Peter Labelliere, a self-confessed eccentric and author. Famous visitors to the town, some of whom stayed the historic White Horse Hotel in the centre of the town include former prime minister Disraeli, authors George Gissing, Jane Austen, Fanny Burney and Charles Dickens, poets John Keats, John Aubrey, John Evelyn and Richard Sheridan.
Dorking has been used as a film and television location on a number of occasions, such as episodes of ‘The Bill’, the films ‘The Secret Life of Adrian Mole’, ‘An American Werewolf in London’, ‘The Holiday’ and ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’ - with many scenes filmed at the church in the nearby village of Betchworth – episodes of ‘Foyles War’, and Betchworth’s now disused quarries were the location for the 80s iconic sci-fi series, ‘Blakes Seven’.
