Epsom is a bustling market town just outside the suburbs of London, England. It sits in Surrey, to the South West of London. Great transport links and a hubbub of community spirit make this a very popular place to live, with great schools and thriving markets. While it is definitely close enough to benefit from what London has to offer, it also offers close links to the countryside, with magnificent Epsom Common, and nearby Nonsuch Park providing excellent green spaces.
Epsom as a name is derived from two words, “Ebbi” meaning Saxon woman, and “ham” which means asmall town or a village. The town is located fifteen miles to the southwest of London.

Palace was built in the town and this led to demolition of the church and village to create space, but during the 1670s it was a gain demolished and and land sold to the farmland.
