I'd say it's a great place to live. Like all places though there are areas in need of TLC.

I'd say it's a great place to live. Like all places though there are areas in need of TLC. There is a real pothole problem around here. And if you dont mind waiting weeks for a doctors appointment then its ideal.

Transport

There are traffic jams down the main streets on my way to work, thankfully I use a short cut. Public transport is plentiful but they use the packed main streets so they are slow. Tons of cycling routes. Public transport is usually clean

Community

Bad parking availability due to massive office towers, they come early and park up and down our street. Bin men are great, street is clean. Rarely and crime, police station is close by. Mostly families or couples with older children. Rarely a house for sale

Amenities

Great selection of local shops. Huge number of restaurants, mostly serving korean food. Do have classics like wetherspoons, nando's etc. Handful of pubs. We have a mini tesco, lidl, waitrose and a couple family owned grocery stores on the high street. There is a massive tesco near the a3 too. Train station and bus stops are easily located. Schools are plentiful. I'd say the only thing that needs work is the amount of doctor surgerys in the area, there is just not enough.

Kingston’s a smashing area!

Transport

There’s no need to drive really for getting about it Kingston itself. And you can get trains all day long to central London or the neighbouring towns.

Community

My street is a private road that’s gated so it’s pretty quiet down here and everyone is very nice and respectable. Mostly families down here.

Amenities

Kingston’s a smashing area! Lots of pubs scattered about, and nice restaurants along the River Thames! Pretty much got all you need in one area here! There’s entertainment like cinemas, children’s play centres, from A-Z you’re sorted in Kingston.

It is a very safe area.

It is a very safe area. In my opinion the biggest plus is the close proximity to Kingston centre, where restaurants and shops are. It’s a quiet area, perfect for people who don’t want to live in a busy, noisy place. There could be more grocery shops nearby.

Transport

There is a few bus stops around, as well as a train station, from which you can take a fast train to central London. Kingston centre is not far away, where even more busses and trains are available.

Community

There is parking available. There is just one busy road nearby, however it is not too noisy. The hospital is right in front of the building. There is a lot of renters and nhs staff living around.

Amenities

There is not many shops and restaurants around, however the location where I live is very close to the Kingston city centre, which is full of amenities. It is either a short bus drive away or a 15/20 minutes walk.
