Tadworth has ancient origins predating the Domesday Book, and even today it has a tranquil village atmosphere characterised by a range of independent small shops including a butcher, baker and greengrocer. Many of these are situated close to the station, and within a few minutes' walk of Hazelmoor Rise.
Nearby schools include Tadworth Primary; Kingswood Primary; Chinthurst School, an independent prepschool for boys; Bramley School, an independent prep school for girls; and Aberdour School, an independent mixed prepschool.
