Beautiful Kingston Upon Thames became part of greater London in 1965. Located just 12 miles from the centre of London, it is a picturesque market town, steeped in history and in a pretty riverside location. Kingston is one of the four Royal Boroughs in England and Wales. Central Kingston is a hub of activity with plenty of retail opportunities. With shopping being the main focus, there is a wide selection of high end stores and boutiques. Also in the centre is The Rotunda complex offering ten pin bowling, a 14 screen cinema, eateries and gym facilities all under one roof. A must see attraction in this area is the disused red telephone boxes that have been tipped on their side to lean against each other in a domino effect. Kingston also offers a wide variety of restaurants and cafés including the popular “Jamie's Italian” owned by Jamie Oliver, this has the added bonus of being located opposite The Rose Theatre. Nearby you can also find Britain's best vegetarian restaurant – the Riverside Vegetaria. To complete your visit to the area you have access to some of London's most impressive parks including Hampton Court Palace and Richmond Park which is the largest of all the Royal Parks and is home to 600 deer! A perfect getaway from the busy hustle and bustle of the city.
