The Derby is Britain's richest horserace, where the world's best 3-year-old thoroughbreds do battle over 1 mile, 4 furlongs and 10 yards for the UK's richest equestrian prize.
It remains the race that everyone wants to win, as horses and riders push themselves to the limit around the unique and challenging course, and boasts an unrivalled roll of honour, including legendary names such as Seabird, Nijinsky, Mill Reef and Shergar.
The Hill is the famous area at the centre of the racecourse and is usually the heart of the party as people flock to its unique carnival atmosphere. The fun runs all day with live music, market and funfair continuing on after racing. Amazingly, by joining the massed throngs on The Hill, it's possible to enjoy this spectacle for free.
Racing starts at 1:35, but by meeting early we can hope to get a good position for the group by the rails in full view of the action, and enjoy a picnic before the racing begins.
So, meet in the ticket hall at Guildford station from around 9:15am, in good time to get group saver tickets (around £10 each, return) for the 9:48 train to Tattenham Corner station, just yards from the racecourse.
