Dorking Museum Guided Walking Tour – Hidden Dorking and the Mayflower

7th October 2021, 10:30 - 15:00


Dorking Museum Guided Walking Tour


Thursday 7 October 2021
10.30pm – 3.00pm



Anyone who attended our Zoom lecture on the Mayflower in March will already know a lot of the history of the Mayflower connection with Dorking. Now you can actually visit the sites as well as some other points of interest in this historic market town.

We have organised to take lunch in a local pub also dating back to the 1400’s.   As the pub menu is changing just before our event, you will receive the menu about a week before the event and will be asked to email your choices back to us so that we can submit a pre-order to make it easier to serve the food quickly when we arrive. The menu is extensive – everything from sandwiches and snacks to full meals. Each party will settle their bill directly with the pub on the day including any drinks they might purchase.

After lunch, we can visit the museum itself. Depending on numbers, we might have to split into two groups as the museum is quite small. There will be an exhibition entitled “Darking 1620” – marking 400 years since the sailing of the Mayflower.

The walk is almost entirely on paved surfaces and should not be too challenging although there are some steep inclines to visit some of the sites. The walk will take approximately 1 ½ hours but with many stops to see the points of interests and hear more about the town. It is outside so suitable clothing for the prevailing weather conditions will be necessary.

The cost will be £10 for members and £14 for non-members which includes entrance fees to the museum. The cost of lunch is NOT included. This visit is not aimed at children and dogs are not allowed.

It would perhaps be possible to complete the tour in a wheelchair but please get in touch if considering this so that we can make provision to accommodate you.
