"The name Kingston has evolved over the centuries from "Cyninges tun", to "Chingstune", then "Kingeston", "Kyngeston super Tamisiam" and perhaps most familiar "Kingestowne upon Thames in 1589."

As a local, it's easy to forget how exciting it is to see Kingston's street art for the first time..

What locals say about KT1

  1. So much for all ages to do, great parks both large and small, Richmond Park feels a world away from London! Great shopping and schools :) And only about 25 mins on the train to central London.

  2. Nice family area, vicinity to the Thames and Richmond park, excellent shopping choices

  3. The proximity to London but the feel of the countryside.

  4. Kingston is a great vibrant town with fantastic travel links. The redevelopment of the market in the town square has been great, There is a vast array of shops, and the recent riverside development has bought some great family friendly chain restaurants to the area. The location on the river is perfect to enjoy an early evening walk.

  5. The shops!
