Getting There

A circular walk from the Dabbling Duck cafe in Shere, Surrey. The Dabbling Duck is a great place to meet up for breakfast, morning coffee, lunch or afternoon tea. The welcome is warm and the food is a treat. The walking route explores large sections of the adjacent Albury Estate taking in pastures, woodland, Albury village, heathland and the formal park with chance to enjoy great views across the rolling hills. The route includes several climbs and descents throughout. Whilst most of the paths are generally firm, some sections can get quite muddy after periods of rain and in winter. You will need to negotiate several kissing gates plus two stiles (both of which have gaps in the fencing alongside, which should be suitable for most dogs to squeeze through). Two of the pastures you cross are likely to be holding cattle so take care with dogs. Approximate time 2 to 2.5 hours.

Shere is located between Guildford and Dorking, just south of the A25. It is easiest to park in the free village car park. Turn off the A25 into Upper Street and follow this as it swings left, look out on the left for the small blue sign which leads you into the village car park. From the car park, you need to make your way to the Dabbling Duck cafe to begin your walk. Exit the car park back to the junction with Upper Street. Turn left along the pavement for just a few paces, and then cross over with care to turn right into Middle Street. You'll find the Dabbling Duck just a little way along on the right. Approximate post code GU5 9HF.

WalkingGreat!

We really enjoyed this walk. There are some hills but mostly easy. We parked in the car park in Shere around 10am on a Sunday but it’s likely to be busy on weekends. Had a lovely lunch at the Dabbling Duck afterwards. We recommend booking a table in advance as it can also get busy! Walk took us around 2hr15mins with some stops for rest.

Lovely walk. The road part is fine, it's on footpaths and the village is pretty and interesting with a great pub with garden and stream.

Lovely walk but not the greatest for dogs: too long walking by the road in the middle section. Shere is really nice though - will return and try to find another circular walk. Highly recommend The Dabbling Duck for a late breakfast!

Lovely walk with some beautiful views, not too muddy though very cold so could be a bit muddier at this time of year! Nice food and a beer at The White Horse.
