Epsom Derby Day Travel Planner
Our friends at PP Travel have great value coach tours to Epsom for the big Derby Day Festival on the first Saturday of June - you can check out their Derby Day Packages here.
If you are attending the races with a group of friends or perhaps on your own the following guide could be useful to you in terms of organising your travel to Epsom Downs Racecourse.
South West Trains operate services from London Waterloo to Epsom Station (10 minute drive), Epsom Downs Station (1 mile walk) and Tattenham Corner Station (half mile walk). It is far easier and closer to walk from Tattenham Corner Station but if you do choose to travel to Epsom Station there are free shuttle buses organised by the Derby Festival race authorities. tfl.gov.uk
It is three stops on the local bus route operated by Metrobus from Epsom Station to Tattenham Corner Station. Jump on the 460, 480 or 406F bus - but of course, as stated above, there is a FREE shuttle bus service direct from Epsom Station to the Epsom Downs Racecourse although the free shuttle does get very crowded and there can be longish waiting times. goaheadlondon.com
The B290 is the direct route from Epsom Town and is only a six to 10 minute drive from the racecourse. If coming from the M25 take junction 9 and you’ll be directed by AA sign markers on any approach route to the racecourse. The postcode for GPS or Google Maps etc. is KT18 5LQ trafficengland.com
Gatwick Airport is the closest International airport hub and is 18.5 miles away. Heathrow is 27 miles from the racecourse. Taxis are plentiful from either airport to Epsom Downs.
Ethical and Eco-Travel
Please consider utilising public transport to minimise harmful petrol/diesel auto emissions. If public transport is not possible to you or unavailable then car sharing can be a very effective way to travel. ecotripcars.co.uk
