How The White Horse, A Revamped Coaching Inn, Is Bringing A Local Flavour To Surrey

Angelina Villa-Clarke , CONTRIBUTOR

Chasing the dream: I write about travel and the world around me  Opinions expressed by Forbes Contributors are their own.

They say that the High Street is dying out, but breathing new life into the main thoroughfare through the Surrey town of Dorking is the recently revamped coaching inn, The White Horse.

Dating back to 1750, the inn was once a popular stop-off point and watering hole for travellers on their way into London, including Charles Dickens, who wrote some of The Pickwick Papers while staying here.

The historic inn has a revamp for a modern traveller

Found at the top of Dorking’s High Street, the renovation of the storied inn places The White Horse as the town’s first destination hotel, ideal for visitors wanting to explore theNorth Downs, Box Hill or visit the nearbyDenbies Vineyard and Estate.

Lovers of olde-worlde charm will be delighted with the £4 million revamp. Owners Bespoke Hotels have kept at its heart the essence of the historic property. Creaking floorboards, original black beams and a higgledy-piggledy feel to the rooms have all been showcased and there are plentiful nods to the Dickens' association with historic prints and volumes of his works found in the bedrooms.
