Leatherhead sits just outside the M25 at the edge of the capital, yet it's just a few miles from the expansive natural beauty of Surrey Hills and the surrounding countryside.

The town centre is about half a mile from Leatherhead train station and most of the main shopping area is pedestrianised. There's a mix of high-street stores and independent shops, plus a street market on Thursdays and Saturdays. The Leatherhead Theatre, which is also a cinema and arts centre, draws visitors to the centre, too.

The current station opened in 1867, the fourth to serve the town and the only remaining. It's a grade II listed Gothic revival building designed by Charles Henry Driver, the architect who was also responsible for the Westminster Embankment in London. Now over two million passengers pass through the station every year. There are about six trains per hour into central London, with an average journey time of around 45 minutes. Other services run to Dorking, Horsham and Guildford.
