We are proud to be based in Dorking, an attractive, historic market town in the heart of the Surrey Hills, one of England's most beautiful landscapes and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This page draws together a selection of books, homewares, crafts and greetings cards that reflect Calliope's local area.
Dorking and its surrounding villages have a host of great independent shops, galleries and restaurants, plenty of great pubs, a fine leisure and entertainment complex at Dorking Halls, and much more. Box Hill overlooks the town, and is famous around the world as the site for last year's Olympic road race; to the south-west, Leith Hill is home to an internationally acclaimed music festival. You can learn more about our hometown at www.visitdorking.com and www.dorkingmuseum.org.uk, and plan your trip to the Surrey Hills at www.surreyhills.org.
We welcome local artists and craftspeople who are interested in selling their products through Calliope - you can get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
