Epsom Downs is a Grade 1 racecourse in Surrey, England, that is used for thoroughbred horse racing. It is located in the Epsom Hills. The name’s “Downs” are actually part of the North Downs.
The course, which can accommodate 130,000 spectators when including those who watch from the Epsom Downs, which is open to the public, is better known for hosting the Derby Stakes, which has become known famously around the world simply as The Derby.
There are five fascinating meetings and race days that take place at Epsom Downs Racecourse during the flat racing season, which include The Spring Meeting in April, The August Afternoon Racing, The Glass Times Race Day in September and The Season Finale, also in September, as well as The Epsom Derby Festival on the first weekend of June every year.
Throughout Epsom’s summer flat racing season, those that have the most memorable experiences at the races are those that set aside a slightly larger budget to enjoy their day with clients, family or friends in an elegant, luxurious private box.
These private boxes are excellent value for money considering the sheer quantity of luxuries and additional benefits gained from paying a bit extra than just standard admission.
