Lifestyle

Just a few miles south of the M25, Redhill is a close neighbour to Reigate, but it’s situated in the beautiful Surrey Hills. We’ve collected some of our favourite things to do in the area, so if you’re stuck for something to do, you’re in the right place…

 

Learn to Fly at Redhill Aerodrome

The Redhill Aerodrome has been around in some form or another since 1933. Today, there’s a business park and an airfield that boasts a range of commercial aviation activities. It’s home to a number of private aircraft, and the Kent Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance, and the National Police Air Service.

You can learn to fly there through several of the aviation companies – including a helicopter – as well as use a flight simulator.

Reigate Castle Ruins

Constructed in the 12th century, nothing remains of the castle now, only an 18th century folly. The castle as destroyed in the Civil War after it was used as a garrison by followers of a Royalist uprising.

However, Barons’ Cave, which sits below the castle, is one of Britain’s oldest show cave, and is open to the public on particular days. No one knows how old it is, or why it was dug out, but there are initials carved into the rock which dates from 1644 onwards.

There are also sand-mine caves under Reigate that can be explored too.
