Christmas comes to Reigate
It’s the most wonderful time of the year – and where better to celebrate and get prepared for the busy festive season ahead than Reigate, a town full of cosy, country charm and a great array of shops and eateries.
On Reigate High Street, Christmas shopping becomes the simplest of tasks. With big names such as Jo Malone London, Space NK, Mint Velvet and White Stuff, each shopper will find a present for everyone on their list. Late night shopping also takes place on the 12thof December, allowing that extra time for those who need it.
Reigate also contains an exceptional mix of eateries, where residents can catch up with friends over the festive period or share a special meal with loved ones. For example, La Barbe on Bell Street is a popular choice at Christmastime, as it is heralded for its delicious December menu. However, Skimmington Castle is also an excellent choice for a Christmas meal, as it is known to be royalty amongst the pubs of Reigate. Located away from the hustle and bustle on Reigate Heath, the ‘Skim’ contains a dining room with a warm fireplace, the perfect spot to enjoy the pub’s selection of real ales and fine wines this winter.
Furthermore, the annual Reigate Christmas Fayre takes place each year towards the end of November or the beginning of December. This year, Santa truly came to town at the Fayre as he arrived by helicopter and landed in Priory Park, much to the delight of all children.
Reigate on Ice is also a brilliant event and is happening this year until the 4thof January 2020. Under a big top marquee in Priory Park, Reigate locals can enjoy a special skating experience alongside other fun attractions, all whilst make those special festive memories with family.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all of us at Hound & Porter – we’ll be enjoying all that the winter wonderland of Reigate has to offer!
