Market town

Epsom is regularly praised as being one of the best places to live in the UK. As befits the home of the Epsom Derby, the town offers a number of top quality equestrian shops and outfitters. But there’s much more to discover, including continental-style cafés, a monthly farmers’ market (on the first Sunday of every month) and a whole host of big high street names – from H&M and House of Fraser to Pandora and Waitrose.

The Epsom Playhouse in the centre of the town is a jewel of a theatre, hosting a whole range of professional and community productions and a highly popular Summer Film Season. You’ll also find a superb range of restaurants and eateries including The Bamboo Basket (tip – the noodles are amazing) and La Familia, renowned for its home-made, authentic tapas. Epsom is not only a delightful place to live, but it’s a place where there’s no shortage of things to see and do.

The Ashley Centre, with over 60 shops including big-name stores and small boutiques draws in visitors from across Surrey and beyond.

Take a walk

to remember

Ewell was immortalised in the Diary of Samuel Pepys, who visited regularly and enjoyed the town’s inns and Nonsuch Park. Today the park is just as impressive, with many ancient trees, a fine mansion house, and is home to an impressive variety of birds, flowers and insects.

The town is also home to the imposing Bourne Hall, which overlooks the Hogsmill River. Home to a public library, underground theatre, gym, café and museum, it’s a fantastic place to get involved in a brilliant variety of community activities.
