The area of Ewell is part of the borough of Epsom and Ewell and covers West Ewell, East Ewell, Ewell Grove, Ewell Court, Ewell Downs and North Looe.
Located well within the London commuter belt, Ewell is a popular place to live, and house prices often reflect this. Just 12 miles from the centre of London and just over 30 minutes by train from either of its Zone 6 rail stations – at Ewell East and Ewell West (to Victoria and Waterloo respectively) – Ewell is ideal for anyone looking to live close to the rolling Surrey hills, while still being a quick commute from the City or West End of London.
Snaking its way through Ewell is the Hogsmill River, a tributary of the River Thames, the spring of which emerges in Ewell. In fact the name Ewell comes from an Old English word that means ‘river source’.
The area is believed to have been settled since the Bronze Age because of bones and pottery found through excavations, but we know the Romans left their mark as Ewell is on the road to Chichester, and the area is named in the Domesday Book.
Today Ewell offers its residents a lovely place to live with an eclectic mix of properties, plenty of green open spaces – including the 16th century royal estate now known as Nonsuch Park, and a whole host of fun activities for kids, including crazy golf, ten-pin bowling, a cinema just a mile or two down the road in Epsom, and so much more.
