Epsom Downs Racecourse
Home of both The Investec Derby and The Investec Oaks, Epsom Downs Racecourse is less than an hour by rail from London Victoria or just over an hour from Waterloo Station. Early June's Investec Derby (arguably the most famous horse race in the world) is the UK's premier thoroughbred horse race for three-year-old colts and fillies, while the Investec Oaks (also raced in early June) is the third of Britain's five Classic races to be held during the season. Located in the North Downs, the elegant Grade I-listed Epsom Racecourse is steeped in history and a popular venue for London's horse racing fans. It's a stylish and striking venue, with the modern Queen's Stand and Duchess's Stand both sights to behold, and the views over the rolling Downs quite something. The track itself is very technical - some say it is perhaps the most unusual and testing flat racing track on the planet, and includes the most famous bend in world racing: Tattenham Corner.
