Epsom and Walton Downs
The Downs are private land owned by Epsom Downs Racecourse and managed by the Conservators through an Act of Parliament.
The Conservators’ principal obligations are to enable the training of the 150 racehorses and associated staff that currently use the gallops up until noon every day, to preserve the Downs in their natural state of beauty, to maintain the public’s right of access and to ensure that the various users respect each other’s rights and the Downs environment.
For further information about the Downs, please see the attached Epsom and Walton Downs document at the bottom of this page.
