Reigate is only 21 miles from London, the presence of the North Downs means that the busy market town remains separate with a wonderful backdrop of the Downs.

Reigate's earliest history can be traced back to the result of the Battle of Hastings. Victorious William the Conqueror awarded the land as part of a generous grant to one of his principal knights, William de Warenne, on whom he also bestowed the title Earl of Surrey in 1088

Reigate's Old Town Hall, dating from 1708, is in a prominent position at one end of the High Street, on the site of the original market place.

Much of the town centre is designated a Conservation Area and there are specialist shops including crafts, antiques, furniture and clothing. Reigate also has a reputation as a gourmet area with a range of restaurants, cafes and pubs.

A short walk from the town centre lies Reigate Priory, founded in the early 13th century which offers 200 acres of open space and woodland, a fantastic children's playground and modern pavilion caf?, designed by renowned French architect Dominique Perrault. The Grade I listed Priory now houses both Reigate Priory School and Reigate Priory Museum. Reigate Priory stands in Priory Park, a 200-acre area, overlooked by the North Downs with a lake, beautiful gardens, woodland and recreational facilities.

Overlooking the town is Reigate Hill, owned by the National Trust, a place for walking, with spectacular views over Weald and South Downs.

Near Reigate Hill lies Gatton Park, the core 250 acres of a manor and park. In the 1760's the park was landscaped by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown. The park comprises grasslands, woodland, ponds and a large lake and there are also formal gardens, including a Japanese Garden, added by Sir Jeremiah Coleman (of mustard fame). Gatton Park is now home to the Royal Alexandra and Albert School . To the west is lies Reigate Heath, 130 acres of sandy heathland, a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Local Nature Reserve.
