It has a pedestrianised high street, with a wide range of shops including the Belfry Shopping Centre; Warwick Quadrant; a street market each Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and occasional French market. Supermarkets in the town include a large Sainsbury, and Marks and Spencer Food Hall; and there is a choice of GP surgeries and dentists. Redhill is near to Reigate and has easy access to Crawley, Gatwick, Croydon, London and Brighton. It is at the junction of the A23 and A25 roads, and the M25 and M23 motorways are within three miles. Redhill has its own railway station and numerous bus services are operated to the town including route 100 to Crawley which is part of the Fastway bus rapid transport system. London Gatwick Airport is only 6 miles from Redhill, and there is also the local Redhill Aerodrome.
