North Downs Way
The North Downs Way passes through 153 miles of stunning landscapes, making a great family day out, a short walk or bike ride, a really good ice cream or a life-changing long distance walk. 35 railway stations are located near the trail. Visitor attractions and country parks give plenty of reasons to escape stress and noise of modern urban living.
Reigate is well known for its 'caves', largely old sand mines. The castle mound overlooking Reigate town centre is composed of soft sandstone and has been mined over several centuries. The castle has long gone but the mound and many excavations still remain. Tours include the Barons' Cave in the Castle Grounds and the Caverns in Tunnel Road.
