What is drawing families to Epsom and other popular Surrey Towns?

Just 15 miles to the southwest of London lies Epsom, a charming market town with a reputation for bath salts and horse racing. This part of the world has always been popular for those seeking a lovely home location that is still within easy reach of all the amenities and opportunities of London. However, recently Epsom – and other Surrey towns – have been drawing even more family buyers to this part of the world.

A great choice of properties

Not every family is the same and so not every property will suit each family setup. The advantage of Epsom and other popular Surrey Towns is that there is a wide variety of different types of properties available. From charming, modern family homes, to barn conversions and late-Victorian and Edwardian houses, the range, choice and pricing of properties in this part of the world is very appealing.

The availability of new build homes

New build homes are ideal for families. Designed to be spacious and accommodating to growing numbers - and easy to move straight into - a new build home makes a lot of sense for those living a busy family life. Epsom and other Surrey Towns have an abundance of new build homes that are available in a very wide range of different dimensions and specifications. These types of properties are hard to beat and one of the reasons why so many families look in this area.

Location and transport

For London commuters Surrey is an ideal choice with swift train connections into the Capital that are plentiful and well timed. Epsom railway station is serviced by Southern and South Western Railway trains that go, not just to London, but all over the country. However, that’s not the only transport advantage to this part of the world. For those in Epsom, for example, Heathrow and Gatwick airports are a quick drive down the M25.

Schools and colleges

Families seeking strong local educational facilities appreciate the options in Surrey. Epsom, for example, has a broad choice of primary and secondary schools, both state and independent options. It is also home to the North East Surrey College of Technology and a campus of the University for the Creative Arts. For families with children at any age there is plenty of choice when it comes to learning and development.

Culture and things to do

Epsom is home to the world famous Epsom Derby, which is one of the oldest and most famous horse races in the world. This area is also where you’ll find a wealth of natural landscapes and attractions, from Box Hill through to the Bushy Park grasslands and the walking trails of Surrey Hills. Surrey also has plenty of family friendly entertainment, such as Chessington World of Adventures, and food hubs and farmers markets in towns such as Cobham, Epsom and Byfleet.
