Polesden Lacey - National Trust,Dorking Information
Polesden Lacey is a place where you can relax, enjoy the countryside and experience history. It has glorious views across the rolling Surrey Hills, acres of countryside, geo-caching, sign-posted walks and a garden audio guide. Step back in time as you enter the house of Mrs Greville, the Edwardian hostess who entertained royalty at her famous weekend parties here. The popular restaurant and coffee shop are open every day throughout the year, offering a wide range of freshly prepared food and drinks. The gift and garden shop give plenty of inspiration for hard to find gifts. With a wide programme of events there's always a reason to come.
