Itinerary: Shopper's Delight
Pull out your biggest tote because you’re going to need it! In Dorking we have the most glorious independent boutiques, stocking exclusive brands as well as unique and hand-made, locally sourced products that you just can’t find elsewhere.
Victoria’s Little Bra shop — a teeny, tiny, perfectly formed, lingerie boutique with the most divine chemises, luxury swimwear and sets.
Martha Russell Dorking — stop by for some beautifully sustainable fluid jersey investment pieces for your perfect capsule wardrobe. The collection changes seasonally and you will literally want to buy everything in the shop. Caroline has started a partnership with Liberty of London and you’ll fall in love with the prints.
Anni and Arthurs at the Yard - located in King Arthurs Courtyard, this sustainable shop is an ideal spot to find preloved fashion. You can pop out into the Courtyard and find a cuppa at Hart's at the Yard, gifts at The Fig Tree, massage and a pedi at the Courtyard and incredible artwork at John Arthur's Art Gallery and Studio. Perfection!
Aya Boutique — the fabulously stylish Deborah will guide you through her fab selection of European clothes and seriously cool accessories. Her service, style, and approach to fashion is impeccable.
Westdaw Menswear – Who can resist a little stylish something to gift later on? You’ll find an elegant, sporty and excellent selection of menswear and accessories from Barbour, Gant and Matinique, as well as the quirky stock of Happy Socks!
It’s now got to be lunchtime.
When you’re ready for a warming tea break or a quick bite, there's My Old Commodore, Burgundy and Black, Oriund Cafe, Tikkanation and Wimpy's to satisfy your every desire. There are some new fusion options opening in Dorking, to include Arrack, to the always popular Cafe Rialto, Dorking Brasserie, Aroma, and New Fountain Garden.
It’s your call!
After lunch, might we suggest a little light loop along West Street and South Street?
The shops of West Street will make you reconsider your home décor just to fit in one of their pieces. The street’s reputation in the industry is renowned, attracting interest from antiques dealers from around the world. If antique furniture or objet d’art are your thing, this street is a must see.
And if you still have the energy, pop on over to Indigo Grey Interiors and Lifestyle Store for some scandi chic inspo. Jen is a dream and knows her stuff as a professional interior designer. Harman’s tailor-made furniture is where you can peruse the handmade British furniture and accessories, and you really don’t want to miss the multi-award winning Philippa McFarlane at Sandrock House, along with her business partner Rebecca (at this Wild House) where you can put the finishing touches to your newly (mentally) redecorated home. West Street is full of fabulous interior design, antiques and award-winning independent shops to inspire and delight. Find them all in our directory.
