Epsom Racecourse from Tattenham Corner
This photo shows the Grandstand and the finishing straight at Epsom Racecourse taken from Tattenham Corner. The notice in the foreground says "Epsom Downs, Home of The Derby. Expect Racehorses on the road. Please drive carefully". There is a 30mph speed limit sign below the notice. Racing has taken place on Epsom Downs since the 17th Century, although The Derby race was first run in 1780. It now takes place on the first Saturday in June each year, with its sister race The Oaks being held on the previous day. In 2015, eleven meetings are being held at Epsom Racecourse including four Thursday evening meetings in July.
