Choosing a bed and breakfast in Kingston places you in the heart of London’s pageantry and history.
The ancient market town of Kingston-Upon-Thames hosted the coronation of seven Saxon Kings in the 10th century; Edward the Elder, Athelstan, Edmund, Edred, Edwy, Edward the Martyr, and Ethelred. They were crowned on the Kingston Stone which can still be seen outside the town’s Guildhall.
While the century’s have rolled on, Kingston is still a busy market town with the biggest collection of shops in the capital outside the centre of London. The riverside is as busy as ever, with a clutch of restaurants, bars and nightclubs clinging to the banks of the River Thames.
Connections to central London are quick and easy thanks to the frequent services by Southwest Trains from Kingston railway station. Regal Hampton Court, Henry VIII’s favourite Palace, can be reached by train, bus or river ferry.
