about Epsom Downs Racecourse
The Epsom Downs Racecourse was the site of one of the most iconic moment in the women’s rights movement. On 4 June 1913, on the day of the Epsom Derby race, militant suffragette Emily Davison jumped out in front of the King’s horse at the Epsom Downs Racecourse and was trampled. She died four days later.
In this dramatic moment, Davison is seen to have given her life for the cause of women’s rights, although there is some dispute on this point.
The incident occurred on the course at Tattenham Corner.
