One of the London Boroughs, in the south-west, bordering and postally included in Surrey. Covers the areas of Kingston, Surbiton, New Malden and Norbiton.
Kingston itself has Saxon foundations: it used to be where kings were crowned. On the river, er, Thames. A fairly attractive and expensive little town, with good shops and a small market. Nice walks down the river, good riverside pubs.
Eadweard Muybridge, who invented motion photography, was born here, and there's a small museum of his works.

A town in south west London, more officially known as Kingston-upon-Thames.

One of the few Royal Boroughs in Britain and a place where seven Saxon kings were crowned.

Now home to one of the largest shopping centres in London.

It's a pleasant but unexciting town although there are a few London landmarks including Hampton Court, Kew Gardens, Richmond Park and the Ham House.

The borough of Kingston-upon-Thames covers the towns Kingston, Surbiton, Chessington, New Malden and Tolworth.
