Epsom is the largest town in this part of Surrey with a theatre, large shopping centre and very busy mainline station. The high street has numerous restaurants, pubs and bars and still retains the roots of its market town past. Most famous for its racecourse, a little way out of the town high up on the beautiful North Downs and the worlds most prestigious horse race - The Derby. The race is held at the start of June each year and thousands descend on the area as they have been doing for over 200 years.
