Reigate Area Guide

A London commuter belt town, Reigate is perfectly positioned to enjoy easy access to both the capital and abundant greenbelt countryside.

With an excellent range of amenities and many sought-after properties in the town centre and surrounding areas, there is something to appeal to everyone whether buying or renting.

Reigate fact file

  • The now-ruined Reigate Castle was built under orders from William de Warenne, 2nd Earl of Surrey in the 12th century.
  • The medieval market town sprung up around the castle.
  • Trading in oatmeal for much of the 16th century meant there were a dozen or so mills in the area during this period, with two windmills remaining today at Wray Common and Reigate Heath.
  • The arrival of the London to Brighton railway line in 1841 led to building across the area and the creation of neighbouring Redhill.
  • Reigate is renowned for its ‘caves’ which are in fact historical sand mines that tunnel beneath the town centre
  • There is an abundance of green space in Reigate, including the pleasant grounds of the ruined Reigate castle.

Architecture and property

Property in Reigate encompasses everything from detached 1920s houses to Victorian cottages and Edwardian semis to contemporary flats, so there is truly something to cater to all tastes and budgets. There is a slant towards the high-end market however, neighbouring Redhill is less expensive with more new-build properties on offer and a good variety of property for sale and to rent.

Green space

Priory Park has extensive facilities including a pond, playground, skate park, sports courts and picnic spots. The National Trust owned Reigate Hill in the North Downs offers far-reaching views and the glorious countryside of the Surrey Hills.

What does our local Hamptons community think

Another amazing experience with Hamptons in Reigate. I have now bought and sold three times with Hamptons and they have been exceptional from start to finish. Jonathan leads the team and is always personable and clear with communications. I’d highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell in Reigate or the surrounding areas. Looking forward to working together again soon no doubt!
