Reigate Hill and Gatton Park


Spectacular escarpment with sweeping views across the Weald

This stretch of the North Downs is good walking country with flower-sprinkled grasslands and quiet shady woods. A lovely spot too for family picnics and games.

Sitting proud at the top of the Hill is the 19th-century Reigate Fort. The fort commands a historic defensive position looking out over the weald towards the South Downs.

The chalk downland is home to many rare wild flowers and insects, including the vibrant Adonis Blue butterfly.

To the east Gatton Park nestles serenely into the North Downs. The lush pastures, mighty trees and sparkling lakes, designed by Lancelot Capability Brown, are stunning.

Reigate Hill and Gatton Park is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).
