What’s it like?

Known as the gateway to Gatwick Airport, Horley has all the atmosphere of a friendly town but with the world at its doorstep. From London-dwellers keen to get more for their money, to families looking for rural living close to schools, to retirees, Horley has it all.

Both London and cosmopolitan Brighton are easily accessible by train from the towns mainline station, while the Gatwick Express provides the easy way to jet off. The market town of Reigate is nearby, as are commuter lines from Redhill.

Horley is surrounded by beautiful open fields and horse chestnut trees (conkers anyone?), offering The Good Life, with a Waitrose in town if self-sufficiency isnt your thing.

Quiet residential roads are lined with stunning period properties while a little further out you can get more space for your money in pretty villages including Charlwood, Smallfield, and Newdigate.

Wine connoisseurs will love Denbies Wine Estates in Dorking, while the thrill of a flutter can be found at Lingfield Race Course. The British Wildlife Centre, Go Ape Tree Top Adventures, Bluebell Railway and Sheffield Park are ideal for active families. There are also plenty of fantastic cafes, pubs and restaurants to choose from.
