We look forward to seeing you! It is hoped that there will be a display of memorabilia which should be of interest to everyone. In certain instances your help will be sought with the identification of some of the rogues of yesteryear!

~ DIRECTIONS FOR REACHING REIGATE MANOR HOTEL
Reigate station is about a mile and a half from the Hotel, up the hill on your right as you leave the station. Taxi rank nearby.
(Note: Redhill station, a couple of miles away, offers a better service from London without having to change anywhere. Please contact me if you need more info on this)
On the M.25, you need Junction 8.
Follow signs for Reigate Town Centre and Gatwick - this is Reigate Hill and after about a mile you will see an ESSO Petrol station on the right, just after 30 mph sign on a clearly marked bend,
At the further end of the forecourt, turn right as if going into the petrol station but keep to the extreme left and follow the road round behind the Hotel into the car park. The “front entrance” is clearly visible at the back!
Entering Reigate from Dorking to the East or from Redhill to the West, enter the one way system and follow signs for the M.25, continue over the level crossing, pass the railway station, then about a mile further on the road begins to rise more steeply, and you will soon see the ESSO Petrol Station on your left – turn as if going in to the petrol station but keep to extreme left and follow road round behind the Hotel to car park. The “front entrance” is clearly visible at the back!
The front entrance is approached by a short flight of steps.
An easier alternative is a sloped entrance to the left as you face the steps, starting near the corner of the building
There are some disabled parking spaces on your left before you turn to access the hotel entrance, and several more immediately to the right of the steps.
Registration will be straight ahead of you as you enter, manned by Esme Weller.
(Toilets on left as you enter hotel)
Don’t hesitate to give me a ring if you have any questions – 01372 - 372 936.
