Epsom has been famous for centuries. The first recorded Derby was held on Epsom Downs Racecourse in 1661 and the famed ‘Epsom Salts’ have been sourced from their bitter natural spring since before records began. This foundation of history and heritage sets the scene for a community rooted in tradition, yet totally connected to the contemporary world.
The rolling South Downs are in easy reach of Rutland House, but there’s an even more convenient green haven to be found in Roseberry Park, right near the town centre. The famous Laine Theatre Arts, University of the Creative Arts and renowned Epsom Playhouse bring a dynamic, creative community to the town, energising the growing collection of bars and restaurants found at its centre.
The Ashley Shopping Centre was opened by the Queen and with over 50 outlets continues to serve as a vibrant hub of employment and community. A steady stream of commercial businesses is drawn here, attracted by the skilled labour force, low crime rates and perfect balance of rural/urban lifestyles.
