Reigate is a small town of about 20,000 people situated in eastern Surrey. Although Reigate is only 20 miles from the London’s city centre, it retains a rural feel as the town is surrounded by some stunning countryside. Reigate is located at the foot of the North Downs, a ridge of chalk hills. These hills are a lovely place to stroll and adventurous walkers can walk even as far as Dover’s white cliffs, if they follow the National Trust’s long-distance foot path: The North Downs Way. One, however, does not have to venture out of Reigate to enjoy the outdoors, as the town is home to several parks and green spaces. The most popular in Reigate is Priory Park and despite its popularity it is large enough to find a peaceful spot, even on busy summer days. Visitors to the Priory can enjoy the park’s lake, woodland and stunning views from the top of the hill. As Reigate is both so close to London and to nature it is a very attractive place to live – particularly for commuters who enjoy a more rural life. Our users agree and in the last 12 months, reallymoving.com and our conveyancing solicitors have helped over 150 people relocate to the town.
Reigate is a town famous for its caves. The caves are the result of intensive sandstone mining in the Reigate area and, as legend goes, the Barons of England met at these caves to draw up the Magna Carta. Although these caves help make Reigate a unique place to live, home buyers should be wary as the caves may compromise ground stability and cause significant property damage. This is one reason reallymoving.com highly recommends the services of our expert conveyancers as they will provide you with a comprehensive environmental search. This search will highlight, among other things, issues arising from ground subsidence.
