Kingston upon Thames, more frequently referred to as Kingston, is part of southwest London. It lies on the banks of the River Thames, 10 miles southwest of Charing Cross Station, and is the admin centre of the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames. The town’s population is a little under 45,000.
Kingston has an impressive array of shopping centres, which easily outshine those of nearby Wimbledon and Richmond. Schools are also a huge attraction for parents with a great choice of ‘good’ and ‘outstanding’ schools, according to Ofsted.
While Kingston doesn’t have the cultural trendy vibe of neighbouring Richmond, it’s not to say it doesn’t have fabulous attractions. Highlights include the Kingston Museum which is filled with local historical artifacts, the fascinating Dorich House Museum, home of the internationally acclaimed Estonian sculptor Dora Gordine, and the Elizabethan style Rose Theatre where some of Shakespeare’s earliest works were performed.
The restaurant scene in the town consists mostly of popular high-street chains, including Côte Brasserie and Bill’s. However, there are also plenty of smaller cafes and bargain eateries, plus some amazing Victorian pubs.
Housing in Kingston
With spacious properties large enough for families, the excellent shopping facilities and highly ranked Ofsted schools, this riverside town has much to offer to families and retirees seeking a suitable property without the high prices of neighbouring towns Twickenham, Richmond and Wimbledon.
Properties in Kingston average around £535,000, which while expensive is cheaper than most Surrey towns, but higher than nearby Greenwich and Hounslow. The area has a decent selection of terraced and detached family-size properties which are perfect for loft conversions.
Great Commuting Location
While there currently is no Underground link serving Kingston, the borough is well-served by main rail. There are many stations close to Kingston, mostly on the South West Trains route. A direct train into Waterloo takes around 30 minutes, so commuting is not a problem for most. Underground stations can be found in nearby Wimbledon, Morden or Richmond for those who prefer to take this route.
The borough additionally has connecting A-roads, including the A3 and A243 so driving out to surrounding areas at weekends straightforward for car owners.
