Epsom and Ewell Municipal Borough was the forerunner of the current Epsom and Ewell non-metropolitan District. It was located in Surrey, England, and covered the towns of Epsom and Ewell. The borough was formed as an urban district in 1894, and was known as Epsom until 1934. It was made a Municipal Borough in 1937.

The district was considered for inclusion in Greater London in 1965 but was left unaltered by the London Government Act 1963 and the Local Government Act 1972. However, despite being outside modern Greater London the borough was in the Metropolitan Police District until it was transferred to Surrey Police in 2000.
