Dorking is a small town about 25 miles south of London. Most of the buildings in Dorking are at least 100 years old. The church is about 150 years old, and many of the houses are of that age. One street, West Street, is very old. It is full of antique shops, and many of them are in seventeenth-century buildings. There are also many old pubs in Dorking and one old hotel. But not all the buildings in the town are old; the town hall is a very modern building; there is also a modern shopping centre and a very new sports centre. There are many restaurants in Dorking and a lot of shops; there are two supermarkets, but no department stores. Every Friday, there is market in the town.

Dorking’s communications are very good. There are three railway stations, with lines going north to London, west to Guildford and east to Gatwick, London’s second airport. Dorking is also close to the M25, which is the motorway that goes around London. Another road, the A24, goes north to London and south to the coast.
