The market town of Reigate has a good selection of shops, pubs, and places to eat, and some very interesting historic buildings and is served by several of our bus routes.
The man-made ‘Reigate Caves’, beneath the castle, were excavated to connect the Castle Keep with the town below and Reigate Castle Tunnel, constructed under the castle grounds in 1823, is believed to be Europe’s first road tunnel.
A short walk from the town centre is the 13th century Reigate Priory. The Grade I listed building, now houses Reigate Priory Museum with a collection of local artifacts and period costumes displayed in atmospheric settings. The Priory stands in the picturesque 200-acres of Priory Park, with stunning views of the North Downs as a backdrop.
