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.

Kingston - A spread of activities, spread a little thin.

Kingston has one of the highest Council Tax payments in the country, but is it worth it for the sake of its amenities? Kingston does have one thing going for it; variety. Its transport links bring it right to the heart of the New Malden urban shopping area and its own high-street is a treat for anyone from a smaller town. Links into London and the surrounding boroughs are also well facilitated by bus and train, meaning there's significant access to any shops or food outlets not represented on the high-street. That being said, it does suffer from a lack of quality in its local food. New fast food restaurants and dining experiences are plentiful, but rarely quality. Their quality stagnates around the level of a work-do evening and the clubs are no better. The cinema and escape rooms are nice to have as options, but like the restaurant scene, somewhat limited in the actual quality. You'd be better off looking further afield for quality than staying at home for convenience.
