Meeting at the view point car park on Epsom Downs we start with a panoramic view of central London .
We go under the racecourse and pass the new Duchess Stand ( opened by Camilla ) and the Queens Stand where the rich and famous watch the historic Derby race ( already being prepared for ) .
Then 'we're off' across the Downs to the Derby start and Langley Vale and more views . We take a long steady uphill to Walton on the Hill and have a pub lunch at the Chequers Inn .
In the afternoon we will walk through the pretty village of Walton on the Hill with it's church and pond and pass the RAT over to Walton Downs where we get a widescreen view of the racecourse and stop to look at some radio controlled planes .
There are various options if we want them at the end including a tea hut , ice cream van ( weather permitting ) or we could go for tea / drinks in the Derby Arms to finish off the day .
£2 in the pot for meetup costs please .
