Strolling along the riverside before brunching in a Parisian style brasserie on the banks of this most picturesque stretch of the Thames, you will soon be under Kingston’s spell. You might start the day at the independent coffee shop Local Hero, winner of a

Time Out Love London award. The heart of the community is the ancient market square, a sunny piazza where local fishmongers and florists sit alongside open-air Vietnamese and Japanese restaurants in timber market stalls.



It’s the perfect place to refuel and stock up for the weekend after shopping in the Bentall Centre, home to stores like Apple, Zara, Massimo Dutti, and Superdry.


With its School of Art & Design and renowned fashion courses at Kingston University, the neighbourhood also has a strong creative vibe. Join the future artists and designers in gastro pubs like The Albion, known for its wide selection of craft ales, or the Grey Horse with its live music nights and jam sessions. Or head for the independent stores of Old London Road where Neil’s Wheels Bike Shop, That Vintage Store, Collectors Record Centre, Old London Road Tattoos, and Kingston Antiques Centre evoke the independent buzz of East London’s Brick Lane. This is also where you’ll find Mr Mullan’s General Store, founded by Mark Ronson’s barber in the Stone Hair salon. This hip boutique stocks the kind of clothing, lifestyle, and accessory brands stocked in Shoreditch’s most renowned stores like Goodhood and Labour & Wait.



It’s not just the parks, river and buzzy neighbourhood atmosphere that make Kingston such a desirable place to live. You are also perfectly placed to make the best of London. A short walk brings you to Kingston Station with a train every five minutes to London Waterloo. Just half an hour away it’s the UK’s busiest railway station with underground connections to the many areas of this exciting city.


As well as connecting you to London Waterloo in the South and Shoreditch in the east, Clapham Junction (20 mins) is also where you will pick up the Gatwick Express. And with Heathrow airport also just half an hour by car it’s easy to get away. For shorter trips, head to the South Coast or Surrey Hills with Box Hill under 50 minutes away and Brighton another hour. On two wheels you are also well positioned to make the best of South West London – whether it’s the boat race at Putney or centre court at Wimbledon.
