"Maurice Gibb of the Bee Gees lived at a house called the Firs in Esher from the 1970s. He regularly talked of his love of living in Esher and he always held a spectacular Christmas party there."

I love walking through the beautifully planted gardens at Hampton Court Palace on a sunny day.

There are some extraordinary properties in the Surbiton and Kingston area that you wouldn't find in central London.
