Epsom has a rich and varied history with a number of famous landmarks and historical connections. Home to the Derby and Epsom Salts, the traditional market town has seen some dramatic changes since it was first discovered as a spa retreat several hundreds of years ago.
Nestled between the North Downs and Greater London, the town’s close proximity to London makes Epsom a desirable location to live, work, study and visit. The Town Centre is home to a range of high street shops and restaurants with a number of national and international businesses in the area. There is a cinema, leisure centre and theatre all within walking distance of the Town Hall. The combination of village-style pubs and modern bars makes the Town an ideal place to relax after work and socialise with colleagues.
Epsom is also fast becoming a popular student destination with the University for the Creative Arts (UCA) at its heart. North East Surrey College of Technology (NESCOT), which is ranked ‘best in the county’, provides both further and higher education and has facilitated a number of apprenticeships for the Council.
