Oxted is a town in the Tandridge District of Surrey taking in Limpsfield and Hurst Green. It lies north of East Grinstead and south-east of Croydon just off the A25. It is also a short drive to the A22 and M25.
The original village of Oxted, now referred to as Old Oxted is a charming village renowned for having 4 pubs in its short High Street, The Old Bell, The George Inn, The Crown Inn and The Wheatsheaf.
Oxted likes its history and culture. It is one of the few Surrey towns to retain its town brass band, Oxted Band, which has been a fixture within the town since 1901. Another annual event is the charity pram race, which started in 1977. This annual feature of the calendar involves entrants wearing fancy dress and pushing a pram around the two thirds of a mile course, stopping at each of the seven licensed premises on the way to quaff a drink as quickly as they can. The race ends in Old Oxted high street where the road is closed for the evening and a street party is held. The nearby Master Park also holds annual events through the summer.
Oxted Station has direct trains to London Victoria in 40 minutes making it an ideal commuter town. It also has good schools. Oxted's main state secondary school is Oxted School (Oxted County School until 2000). Opened in 1929, it has over 2000 pupils and is one of the largest in the country. Other state schools are Downs Way primary school and St Mary's C of E junior school. There is one independent school, Hazelwood School, which is co-educational and caters for children 2.5 to 13 years.
Oxted has a good choice of shops from the large Morrisons superstore to the smaller boutique shops in the high street. It is also well served for coffee shops, cafes and restaurants. Famous residents of Oxted include the businessman Mohamed Al-Fayed, palaeontologist, TV presenter and author, Alan Charig and singer Louise, formerly of the band Eternal.
