Coronation Collection: Live like a King

By Sophia Wood-Burgess

View latest articles


One of our premier development clients St George, part of the Berkeley Group, took inspiration from Kingston’s epic history to create its ideal development – Royal Exchange. As we gear up for the Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III, let’s see what it’s like to live like a King.

The Royal Exchange experience:

Live in luxury

Built around the beautiful Grade II listed Old Post Office and Telephone Exchange buildings, these modern homes are designed to the highest specifications – from the chevron flooring to the contemporary style of each room and the view outside your window, all have been carefully considered.

Easy access to a central hub

Living in Royal Exchange, you’re just a short walk from Kingston train station. There, up to six trains an hour travel to London Waterloo in just 30 minutes. Waterloo Station is a great central hub, an an easy base to explore the Capital from.

Your gateway to education

Excellent primary and secondary schools – including renowned Tiffin School and Kingston Grammar School. Kingston University, which admits over 16,000 students worldwide, is renowned for art and is one of the country’s top universities for start-ups.

The Berkeley treatment

Of course, if you walk out of your building you’ll have the best of Kingston on your doorstep. However at home, you still have a residents’ gym, screening room, 24-hour concierge, meeting room and beautiful residents’ courtyards to unwind in peace from the town centre’s hustle and bustle.

The royal connection

London’s Westminster Abbey has been the site of every coronation since 1066, but well before that, as many as seven Saxon Kings of England were crowned in the ancient market square in Kingston upon Thames. Whilst the Coronation on Saturday will be the first that many of us have ever witnessed in our lifetimes, London is already well-versed in the fanfare. With Hampton Court Palace and Royal Parks nearby, Kingston wears its royal history proudly.


Placemaking is key with Berkeley. The idea is to understand the history, amenities and culture of an area before you build a development, so you’re bringing exactly the right mix to fit into the community. That means long-term success for the development and for the community it joins. Royal Exchange is the perfect example of this.

Kingston’s ancient market stalls have blossomed into a bustling town centre. Nestled up against the Thames, this town centre is surrounded by Royal parklands, picturesque river walks and world-class education. In the centre, there’s The Rose theatre; riverside pubs; retail’s name brands, boutiques and rising designers; all sorts of health and fitness services; and cuisine from just about everywhere…All Kingston’s town centre needed was some high-quality housing in the heart of it all.

The Royal Exchange is an exceptional development in a prime location, book a viewing for the royal treatment.

East or West?

This development is the pride of a growing South West London hotspot. However, if you're looking in the other end of the Capital, there's a South East London development where King Henry VIII's finest ship was constructed. Read Coronation Collection: the riverside reigns supreme.
