Kingston area guide

The Royal Borough of Kingston is one of the oldest and most historic towns within the Greater London area. This fantastic town is a great example of somewhere which can maintain it’s historic identity whilst providing the most modern of lifestyles. Whether you want to visit the old market place and churches which date back hundreds of years or spend the day out shopping then wining and dining at some of the finest bars and restaurants, you will not be disappointed.

Kingston is home to a wide demographic, catering to everyone from young professionals who commute into the city using the fantastic transport links or a family who want to provide their children with outstanding education both private and state. The stunning Richmond Park and Kingston high street and riverside mean that no matter what your interests are, you will never be bored.


As Kingston is home to such a wide demographic of people, it also needs to be able to provide activities to suit everyone’s needs. Richmond Park is perfect for walking and cycling, providing some of the most beautiful and scenic views to be found anywhere in London. It is a great source of flora and fauna being home to many deer and even Macaws and the Isabella Plantation in particular has incredible natural beauty. Aside from the shopping, there are plenty of gyms and sports halls for the very active as well as swimming pools, sports centres and activity groups for those with children.


True to form, even the houses in Kingston cater to all different tastes and requirements depending on what your needs are. As it is an old town it is no surprise that the majority of the homes in Kingston are very attractive and characterful period properties from the Victorian, Georgian and Edwardian era, both smaller cottages and large grand homes set on huge plots of land. The area towards New Malden offer homes which are predominantly 1930’s build. With a huge influx of younger buyers and city commuters there has also been enormous investment in newly built modern homes in Kingston, both affordable and luxury, which can be found in the centre of town and along the riverside.
