Riding School at the Durdans, Chalk Lane

Riding School at the Durdans, Chalk Lane, Epsom and Ewell, Surrey KT18 7AX View on map

The property is an indoor riding school designed by George Devey for Lord Rosebery, who later became Prime Minister. It was built in 1881. It is still used for equestrian purposes as it is part of the Durdans Stables, a racing and livery yard. Lord Rosebery bred three Derby winners; Lados, Cicero and St Visto, whose graves are also at the Durdans.

Opening Arrangements

7 - 10th September - 9 am to 1 pm each day. Also open by appointment.


Head towards Epsom Racecourse and follow Chalk Lane down from the Racecourse. Durdans is through double doors on the left just before a barrier across the road. Nearest railway station is Epsom approx 3/4 mile away. Not served by a bus route.

Parking Spaces


Limited parking and is shared with the livery horse owners so suggest, if possible, visitors should park at the race course - end of Chalk Lane & walk down to the stables. Very pleasant walk - 15 minutes.
