Dorking has a large Waitrose (amongst other shops), good concerts/films and a swimming pool. For other shopping and entertainment Guildford is sixteen miles away and Brighton is thirty miles away. Despite being on the edge of an AONB Capel is very well connected making travel abroad and trips to London very convenient The A24 connects London to the south coast and gives access to the M25 at Leatherhead (Junction 9).
