Reigate's historical significance

Eileen Wood, Curator of Reigate Priory Museum contributed to the leaflet, highlighting Reigate’s importance as a coaching halt between London and Brighton and other destinations. There used to be 50 coaches a day.

Historically significant buildings and other important finds, such as the Reigate Doublet, are located on the Trail, so that adults and children can find physical remnants of the town’s history in modern Reigate.

The historic treasure trail has been produced by the Reigate and Redhill 150 Year Celebration Steering Group.
