The world famous Epsom Derby dates back to 1780 and is surely one of the most iconic sporting and social events of the calendar. The two-day Derby Festival, held each year on the first weekend of June at Epsom Downs Racecourse, is truly an unmissable event.
For the 2018 season, why not make your day really special by hiring a vintage bus to take you to the races. Our buses park facing the rails within an exclusive enclosure and provide excellent grandstand opportunities. Thoroughly recommended!!
Ladies Day, (The Oaks), which starts the festival on Friday 1st June, is certainly the place to dress up and be seen. A pleasantly relaxed meet and a refreshing alternative to the crowds Saturday’s event draws. All in all, Ladies Day is an absolutely magnificent, value for money day out.
The Derby on Saturday has to be the show-piece of the flat racing season. Horses and riders really are pushed to their limit and the atmosphere is superb. It's not difficult to imagine a fantastic day at the races for you and your guests.
Your day starts with the bus collecting you and your guests - usually from the Surrey or South London areas. Alternatively, the bus can meet you at Epsom station if you travel from farther afield.
Should you prefer to make your own travel arrangements, the bus can simply be made available within the enclosure as an exclusive rendezvous and grandstand for your guests.
By all means bring picnic hampers with you, or perhaps you may wish to arrange with us for experienced caterers to greet you on the course.
Epsom racecourse require the buses to be in position no later than 10:30am and we arrange parking in one of their exclusive enclosures. Departure is following the last race once authorised by Epsom staff, usually after 6pm.
