Leafy Esher station tucks in between two golf courses and the Sandown Park Racecourse, about a mile north of Esher town centre and just south of Weston Green village. The south-west London suburb joined the railway network in 1838, and current daily services that call at the station travel between London Waterloo and Woking in Surrey. Extra trains, though, are put on for race days at Sandown Park, and there is a special entrance to the racecourse directly from the station platform. Should you be in town not on race day, the walk from the station along Portsmouth Road to the town centre takes about twenty minutes, or nine minutes by bus. The main collection of shops, pubs and restaurants are along Portsmouth Road and the adjacent High Street. A twenty-minute bus ride south of the station will deliver you to the 18th-century Claremont Landscape Garden, part of the National Trust with a cafe, playground and serpentine lake.
