Redhill (紅山), Surrey (薩里郡)




Redhill is a town located in the south of Surrey. East of Redhill is Reigate which is historically a rich area with expensive houses and private schools. Croydon (Greater London zone 5) is located in the north of Redhill.


Redhill is also really close to Box Hill (only 21 minutes by car), which is the Surrey greenbelt where people can enjoy walking in the countryside.


Redhill is very convenient being so close to Gatwick Airport (14 minutes driving and 9 minutes on the train). There is one flight per day (by Cathay Pacific) from Gatwick to Hong Kong. *


Redhill is a commuter town with good roads (motorway M23) and railway links to London, Guildford (west of the Surrey) and Brighton (down south to Sussex).


Surrey is known to be one of the wealthier home counties and is located in the South East of England. Home counties are counties of England which surrounds London.
