Dapdune Wharf is National Trust owned and is an excellent area to come and visit. These waterways have been in operation since the 17th century and link to the river Wey that flow through Weybridge in Surrey. Surrounding grounds are well looked after.

Small but a really nice place to wander down to, out of the way showing a way of life no longer with us. Enough buttons and things to pull for little children, also a very good second hand bookshop too. Very enjoyable.

Half a day but be aware that during busy periods if you leave it too late you won't get a boat trip.

Hi - yes, I'm afraid members to have to pay for the boat trip. The adult price is £3.95, child price £2.30 and a family of 2 adults and 2 children is £11.50. We hope you enjoy it!
