Shere is a beautiful, quintessential English village located between the towns of Guildford and Dorking.  The village offers visitors charming buildings, a stream with ducks, a small museum, a tearoom, two pubs, The White Horse and The William Bray as well as a 12th century church.

Surrounded by stunning scenery, and close to popular scenic sites Newlands Corner and the Silent Pool,  the quaint picturesque village of Shere is popular with walkers as well as being a favourite location for filmmakers with scenes in Bridget Jones, The Edge of Reason and The Holiday being filmed here.

The Church of St James appeared in the Domesday Book.  It contains a tiny enclosed cell in which Christine Carpenter, an anchoress (religious recluse) lived.  Her only contact with the outside world was through a grid and an aperture through which food was passed.
