The Epsom Derby is one of the highlights of the annual racing calendar in the UK, and what better way to get to the Epsom racecourse than by chauffeur-driven car? Chauffeur One is a leading chauffeur driven car hire service in London, providing fully-trained drivers and luxurious vehicles for your comfort and convenience.
The Epsom Derby has a long history and was first held in 1780; it is associated with some of the greatest names in horse racing history, from Sea Bird and Nijinsky to Shergar and Galileo. The Investec Derby, as it is called for sponsorship purposes, has a prize fund of £1.35 million, making it the richest horse race run in the UK and ensuring that some of the leading flat-race horses are entered to race. The race is for three-year old thoroughbred colts and fillies. The excitement of a roaring crowd on race day itself is not something you will want to miss.
The 2015 Epsom Derby festival is on Friday the 5th and Saturday the 6th of June. This flat race festival attracts huge crowds to the Epsom Downs. From London to the racecourse takes around an hour by road, making an outing to the races an ideal daytrip from the capital. Take the stress out of driving yourself by using a chauffeured car. Your chauffeur will pick you up and whisk you to the racecourse for a day of glamour and excitement. The Friday of the Derby festival is Ladies Day and you can add to the sense of style and occasion by arriving in an elegant executive car, fully fitted for your comfort and with a uniformed driver for an additional touch of class.
Away from the racecourse, the town of Epsom is a Sussex market town with the Hogsmill River running through. There are plenty of things to see and do in Epsom; its compact town centre is home to a mix of well-known high street names and independent shops. Chauffeur One will be delighted to draw up an itinerary for you.
At Chauffeur One, we provide Russian-speaking chauffeurs in London for those of our clients who feel more comfortable speaking in their native language. Our drivers have also been trained in security procedures, for additional peace of mind. The drivers also have knowledge of the areas they work in and will travel by the best route available to your destination, taking into account traffic delays.
If you were seeking a restaurant to dine in on your way to and from Epsom, Chauffeur One would be delighted to recommend one. If you prefer, you could bring a picnic to the races and your driver can mind it for you until you are ready to eat. If you are travelling to the races with a group of friends or your family, we have multi-seat vehicles for hire. These retain all the style and comfort of our executive cars, with the addition of extra space. If you want to check the latest odds as you travel to Derby day or keep yourself otherwise entertained, our vehicles come with complementary Wi-Fi.
