The famous salts were ‘discovered’ in a well in 1618: John Aubrey tried them in 1654 while visiting his brother, Richard at Woodcote Park. The town had ‘much company’, according to Pepys in 1668.
With the qualities of magnesium sulphate for relaxation, relief of aches and pains, and foot baths, Epsom became a fashionable spa in the late 1600s, with daily posts from London running through the season from 1684.
The Assembly Room in the High Street was one of the earliest in England: now in its latest incarnation as a large pub, it is an impressive building so representative of the 18th century: combining elegance with confidence.
By the early 1700s, London merchants would settle here for the summer. Defoe, writing around 1725, reported that they drove into town every morning and that Epsom was deserted in the winter.
Though the waters eventually failed, the original well can be seen on the common. Epsom was saved by its racecourse and the world’s most famous race. One can see the dome of St Paul’s from the Grandstand of 1927 - the first of its kind to be constructed of reinforced concrete.
