We love Godalming.  Not only is it the home of our base camp and showroom, it’s a town we love to spend time in whenever we get the chance. If you\’re looking for things to do in Godalming after visiting our showroom, we\’re here to help you out. We simply can’t keep our favourite haunts a secret any longer.

So, why are we sharing them in a blog post?  A visit to our showroom is always welcomed; it provides the perfect opportunity for us to answer any questions you might have, and it’s when you get to meet Georgina; the person behind all the ordering, calls and email exchanges.

We like it when you can make the most of your visit to us, and so here’s a list of other things that\’ll help you discover what Godalming has to offer, from cosy coffee shops to wandering walks.  Why not make a morning or afternoon of it?

1. Secretts of Milford: A Horticultural Haven

Start your exploration at Secretts of Milford, a fabulous garden centre that offers an oasis of natural beauty. Admire the array of plants, flowers, and shrubs, and seek expert advice to enhance your own garden.  If you’re coming to us for patio doors, this might be exactly the place you need to visit.     A few potted plants will really make those doors shine.

Pssst… Don’t forget to visit their delightful farm shop, where you\’ll find an abundance of fresh, local produce and artisanal gems.

2. Milford Common and Riverside Walk: Nature’s Serenade

Immerse yourself in the tranquillity of Milford Common and embark on a scenic riverside walk…why not stop off at Secretts just beforehand and pick up a few bits of a picnic!

Meander along the banks of the River Wey, surrounded by picturesque landscapes and abundant wildlife. Take in the sights and sounds of nature as you stroll along the idyllic pathways, offering a peaceful retreat from the bustling world.

3. Head to The Refectory for a good old pub lunch

If a picnic isn’t your thing, why not stop at one of the area\’s most quintessential pubs.  Enjoy this former cattle barn with open fires and ancient wooden beams for a place to warm your cockles in winter.  When the sun’s-a-shining, head outside, admire the view and soak up the rays; the perfect way for you to discover Godalming from the comfort of a chair.

P.S. We hear the chicken, ham and leek pie is a must.

One of our favourite things to do in Godalming, of course!
