Reigate, Surrey

You might not necessarily plan for a day out to Reigate but if you’re staying nearby or if you’re more or less passing on your way to or from somewhere else you should make a detour because you’ll probably like what you see. It’s a nice little place, another one of those historic Surrey market towns that has something of a villagey feel about it, you know, lots of charming red brick buildings and plenty of independent shops to browse. You can easily while away a morning or an afternoon here so actually, why not put it on your list for somewhere to visit? For starters you can have a look round Reigate Priory Museum and if that gets you in the mood for a bit of history there’s plenty more - Reigate Castle, the 19th century Reigate Fort at the top of the hill, or Reigate Caves.  The young ‘uns would probably like to go to Priory Park where they can tear about and let off steam, play in the playground and explore the woods. You’re bound to need sustenance at some stage and they say The Black Horse is very good, but if you like burgers go to Eighty Ate Burger, and if you’ve got a thing for salt beef you really should go to Beryl and Pegs.
