|Route outline (key)|
The B288 is a short urban B-road in Epsom.
It starts on the A24 to the east of Epsom town centre. It heads south, crossing the railway line before reaching the A2022. It multiplexes south along the A2022 for roughly the same distance as the entire length of the B288 before regaining its number by Epsom College. That road has only existed since the 1970s; before then the multiplex was along the B280.
The B288 continues south along Longsdown Lane South, climbing steadily. It passes the link road to Epsom Downs station on the left and a golf course on the right before it reaches the B284 at Buckle's Gap and ends. The racecourse is about another mile further on but the B288 has never reached it.
