About Oxted

oxted events

Oxted is a vibrant and friendly town situated at the foot of the North Downs.

Listed in the Domesday Book of 1086, Oxted has a long history but its first major expansion came with the arrival of the railway in 1884. The town grew and prospered into the thriving community that we have today.

Oxted is in a beautiful location, surrounded by countryside whilst benefiting from an excellent rail and road network being only 5 minutes drive from the M25 and 20 minutes from Gatwick airport. Visitors can travel by rail from London to Oxted in only 30 minutes.

It has long been said that you can find everything you want in Oxted and it’s true. We are incredibly proud of our excellent range of independent boutique style shops selling everything from fine jewellery, gift and fashions to fine wine and artisan beer. You can also meet your more practical requirements from a selection of shops stocking household items from furniture and carpets through to electrical goods and DIY items. Then of course there is an excellent range of supermarkets and convenience stores.

When you are tired of shopping you can chose to eat in one of our cafés, restaurants or pubs offering menus to meet every budget and taste. And, if you would like to be pampered we can do that to at one of several hair, beauty and nail salons in the town.

Oxted is a town that punches above its weight and even boasts a lovely cinema housed in a tudor style building on Station Road West. If you want to be a little more active then visit the Leisure Centre where there are a wide range of activities available including an excellent swimming and leisure pool.

Come by train and you will arrive in the heart of Oxted. Come by bike and use on of the many bike racks available throughout the town. Walk and enjoy all that our location has to offer. However, if you do need to come by car, please enjoy the free parking which is available for up to 4 hours per day and all day at the weekends.
