The county town, Guildford is 17 miles west southwest. On the North Downs, Banstead is on three of the four main compass points separated from other settlements by open area buffers with Metropolitan Green Belt status. Echoing its much larger historic area and spread between newer developments, Banstead Downs is a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Regarding its "town status", Banstead has never had the right to a regular market; however it forms a post town.
