The Deepdene Trail in Dorking comprises several different walking routes with stunning views and also the restored gardens of the old Deepdene House which existed on the site. This was the home of the Hopes of diamond fame and there is also a mausoleum which they constructed for the grave of their son who died in childhood. This was unearthed and restored as part of the restoration project.

Starting from Dorking Golf Club, we will walk up on to the terrace which has stunning views southwards and was the viewpoint from the gardens just to the north in the valley below. We will take time to visit the restored gardens with its folly and other notable features. The walk will go out in an easterly direction with more fabulous views both southwards and towards the North Downs.

The total distance covered will be approximately 3.5 miles. There are some inclines including a steep slope/steps to and from the restored gardens. It is not expected to be particularly muddy or challenging but strong footwear is recommended. Except in dangerous weather conditions, the event will go ahead so please dress appropriately for the prevailing weather conditions.

Children who are good walkers could join.  However this walk is not pushchair friendly or suitable for those with mobility issues.

Well behaved dogs on leads are welcome.

We will assemble at the Dorking Golf Club lower car park which they kindly allow visitors to the Trail to use. The club house is open to the public for refreshments and you may like to have a coffee or lunch there at the beginning or end of the walk.
