Soaring prices in the capital have forced buyers to look further afield, yet they are suddenly realising that many of the areas, including Epsom, offer the best of both worlds. It may be famous for Epsom salts and the world’s greatest racecourse but there’s a lot more to the Surrey town than that. Londoners who want to maintain the excitement of the city during the week, but escape to the leafy countryside on weekends would be silly not to consider this popular choice for those looking for a better quality of life outside the capital. So, we thought we would provide you with all the Epsom information incase it takes your fancy…
