Dorking Museum and Heritage Centre

Dorking Museum is a small local history Museum, run entirely by Volunteers. The Museum tells the story of Dorking and the surrounding area from Cretaceous times right through to the present day when the 2012 Olympic Road Race came through our town.The museum has a fine collection of local chalk fossils, as well as the mineral collection of Lord Ashcombe of Denbies. Other key items include a Wedgwood pottery collection. The museum archive holds a large collection of ephemera relating to the area. Our Learning team has put together loan boxes that are regularly utilised in schools, both in the Museum catchment area and further afield. We also welcome schools and youth groups to the Museum. The walks team organise regular walks through Dorking on a variety of themes. The caves team run 4 tours a day to the South street Caves once a month.
