Reigate was a market town and borough in the county of Surrey, England, about 24 miles southwest of London. It had a population of 25,993 as of 1901.

Sherlock Holmes and John Watson visited the town in 1887, at the invitation of Watson's old friend Colonel Hayter. Watson thought it the trip would be good opportunity for Holmes to convalesce following a taxing case on the continent; little did he know, they would there find themselves involved in the case chronicled in "The Adventure of the Reigate Squire".
