Epsom

Epsom is a town in the county of Surrey, about 15 miles south-west of London.

Each June, it is the home of the Epsom Derby horse race, the second leg of the English Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing.

Historically, Epsom was known as a spa town, although there is little to see nowadays.

Epsom has frequent rail services to London (Waterloo Station, Victoria Station[?] and London Bridge Station[?]), and also to Leatherhead, Dorking, Guildford, Horsham and Croydon.


Epsom is also the name of a place in the State of New Hampshire in the United States of America. See Epsom, New Hampshire.
