Kingston-upon-Thames Hotels - London

Mini guide to Kingston-upon-Thames

     

Kingston-upon-Thames is a quaint suburb of London, lying right on the riverbanks of the Thames and one of only four Royal boroughs in England. It is a wonderful area to spend a weekend outside of the hustle and bustle of Central London.

A visit to Hampton Court Palace should not be missed. It is a magnificent blend of sumptuous Tudor decor and Wren's baroque architecture. It was built by Cardinal Wolsey, who gave it to Henry VIII in an attempt to retain his favour. The palace has wonderful gardens and has a famous hedge maze that is definitely worth a try. Access is by train from Waterloo station to Hampton Court (approximately 30 minutes, departing at-least twice hourly).

There are also many things to enjoy on and around the river. There are pubs and restaurants along the riverside; boat trips can be arranged and a wide variety of watercraft are available for hire. There are walks and cycle routes to Hampton Court, Hogsmill,Teddington and Richmond along some of the most picturesque stretches of the Thames. North of Kingston Bridge lies Canbury Gardens, a spacious park with riverside pathways, picnic tables, lovely gardens, and opportunities to fish and feed the ducks.

Nearby, there are several famous theme parks for a great family outing. Chessington World of Adventures is the South's number one theme park - full of rides and adventures. Also nearby is Thorpe Park, one of Britain's favourite family theme parks, and one admission price includes all rides, shows and exhibits. Both theme parks can be reached via train from Waterloo station.

Kingston-upon-Thames is a beautiful area to stay and explore. Although it is just outside London, you can begin to enjoy the flavour of the English countryside here. Although there is no direct tube access, you can get to Central London by train via Waterloo station.
