Epsom Derby Races Tickets

Situated within a stunning Surrey setting, Epsom Downs Racecourse hosts some of the most exciting races on the horse racing calendar.

You’ve likely heard of The Epsom Derby, but if not, we’ll come to that soon. What you’re less likely to know of, unless you’re an experienced horse racing fanatic, is the other four major meetings that take place in Epsom every year.

Alongside The Derby, Epsom Downs presents The Spring Meeting at the end of every April, two Afternoon Meetings in August and September, and a Season Finale meeting to cap if all off on the final Sunday of September.

Epsom Downs Racecourse, thanks to its brilliant positioning on The Epsom Downs chalk lands, can accommodate up to 130,000 spectators at any given time. This indicates two things – the stature and significance of the meetings held here, and the demand and popularity the races attain.

Regardless of Epsom’s attendance capabilities, tickets for enclosures and hospitality sell out fast, so it’s important to stay in the know for when tickets go on sale for each meeting, especially The Derby.
