About the area

Kingston upon Thames is located in South West London and is a commuter heartland. Once a historic market town, it now boasts attractions old and new. The town is steeped in history: in the X century, seven kings were crowned on Kingston's Coronation Stone. Kingston's ancient marketplace, established in the XIII century, has survived to this day and now it lies in the heart of the historic centre. As for more modern attractions, Kingston is home to the Bentall Centre, which boasts four floors of shops. David Mach's unusual sculpture of leaning telephone boxes is located on Eden Street, while Chessington World of Adventures, Greater London's finest theme park, is also situated within the boundaries of the borough.

The borough of Kingston upon Thames is a mainly residential area that lies on the bank of the River Thames. It has a great number of high-end shops, bars, and restaurants that suit any taste. Moreover, the districts of Kingston are rich in parks and green zones, which makes it a relaxing place to live in. One of the most famous parks in this area is Fishpond Park. It occupies more than a dozen acres, popular with all kinds of people, especially dog walkers. Another popular green area here is Claremont Gardens. Both those parks attract a great number of ‘white collars’ who want to take a rest from their urban office life.

In general, Kingston is a sought-after place to live in with high-quality property on the market.
