A village with a long history

Tandridge dates back to Anglo-Saxon times, having been mentioned in the Domesday Book in 1086. If you're keen to catch a glimpse of Tandridge's past, be sure to visit the parish church of St Peter, parts of which date from the 11th century. 

The churchyard contains a number of historic headstones and vaults belonging to local digniteries, the grandest of which is an elaborate, white-marble tomb commemorating Lady Scott, the benefactress of the church and wife of architect Sir George Gilbert Scott, who lived at nearby Rooksnest. It's also home to an immense yew tree, which is estimated to be over 1500 years old – making it one of the oldest in the country.

Attractions around Tandridge

Nature lovers will enjoy a visit to the British Wildlife Centre, where you can get to know the local critters, while families with children will love a day out at Godstone Farm & Playbarn. If you're keen on visiting grand manor houses and elegant gardens, make the short trip to Titsey Place and Gardens, which dates back to the 16th century. 

Golf fans can indulge in a game at the handsome Tandridge Golf Club, designed by golf architect Harry Colt, with stunning views of the countryside. Or for an evening out, head to The Barn Theatre in Oxted for a selection of local and touring productions, all in a quaint building constructed from 13th-century timbers.
