Guide to Belmont
Belmont is a suburb of south London that retains the community feel and extensive green space of a village.
The history of Belmont only dates as far as the late 19th century. Belmont station – originally named California station after the nearby California Arms public house – was opened in 1865, with the village only developing in the subsequent years.
Situated on the edge of the 430-acre Banstead Downs Site of Special Scientific Interest, Belmont is a fantastic location for families and lovers of the outdoors. As well as the numerous golf courses found in the area, the Downs are home to abundant wildlife, including the rare small blue butterfly – the smallest butterfly found in the UK.

Despite its rural feel, Belmont is firmly within the commuter belt thanks to its excellent transport links. Belmont station – on the Sutton to Epsom Downs branch line and the London Victoria to Epsom Downs line – is located in the heart of the village, with services reaching the capital in less than an hour.
As well as its proximity to central London, Belmont boasts its own commercial street – Station Road. Running from the station to St John’s Church, it is largely made up of independent shops and restaurants.
A mile to the north is the town of Sutton, home to a larger commercial centre and the iconic Winning Post pub (formerly the Red Lion), where The Rolling Stones were first spotted by music mogul Giorgio Gomelsky.
