The Kingston area
Introduction to Kingston upon Thames
Kingston Upon Thames is a beautiful place to study, situated just outside central London but combining the wide open space of the countryside with the ample amenities of a major town. Kingston is situated next to the River Thames, and is a town steeped in history. One of only three Royal Boroughs, Kingston has a rich anglo-saxon history and is also located just across the river from Hampton Court Palace, home to Henry VIII.
The centre of the town is a shoppers' paradise with a vibrant shopping centre, plus there are plenty of top-quality cafes, wine bars, restaurants and pubs to relax in after a hard study session.
Our safe and green Kingston Hill campus is just outside of the main town centre, within easy walking distance of Richmond Royal Park; and with central London only 25 minutes away by train, you don’t have far to travel to access its world renowned thriving legal and cultural centre.
