Extra Info

Friday 31st May – Saturday 2nd June

This is THE Derby, the original, all other Derbies are named after this race meet and the meet itself is named after the then 12th Earl of Derby. This is sometimes known as the ‘Blue Riband of the Turf’ and is considered to be the most prestigious of the five Classic Races (the others being: 2,000 Guineas Stakes, 1,000 Guinea Stakes, Epsom Oaks, St. Ledger Stakes).Team Tactics offer hospitality packages which provide the perfect way for you and your guests to enjoy the frivolities.

Getting There

By Road

Epsom is just inside the M25 on the Gatwick Side of London.

If heading in from the East: Turn off the M25 at Junction 8 and head North up the A217 towards Tadworth. When you get to the Third roundabout, take the 2nd exit onto the B2220. As soon as you have gone over the railway cutting, turn right onto the B290 (High Street). Take the 2nd left onto The Avenue then the 2nd Right onto Kingswood Road. Kingswood Road ends in a T-Junction: turn left and then follow the road all the way to the racecourse. Make sure you are not attempting this route after 1200 as the road will be closed.

If heading in from the West: Turn off the M25 at Junction 9, at the roundabout take the 1st exit onto the A243 (heading south), at the next roundabout, take the first exit onto the A24 and head into Ashtead. As you drive down the high street, you’ll pass the Beijing Palace on the right, turn right immediately onto Park Lane. Just after the first bend you will need to turn left to stay on Park Lane. Park Lane eventually ends in a T-Junction, here you should turn right onto Farm Lane. Take the first left (it’s about half a mile) onto Downs Road, the soon turns into Langley Vale Road which you follow all the way to the race course.

By Rail

Tattenham Corner Station is the closest to the grandstand, it takes about an hour from London Bridge station. There is also Epsom Downs station which is a little further away, but if you don’t mind a mile-long walk through a golf course this may prove a more convenient station for you. There is a direct train to this station from London Victoria which takes about an hour. If you don’t fancy walking, a shuttle bus serves both stations on derby days.
