Welcome to Kingston upon Thames; an historic market town with attractions old and new. One of only four Royal boroughs in England and Wales, Kingston has close links with royalty that date back more than a thousand years. The town was first recorded in an Anglo Saxon Charter in 838, and then in 946 when it became the venue of a number of councils and coronations, cited by King Egbert as 'the royal town where kings were hallowed'. Visitors have long favoured Kingston for its attractive riverside location, proximity to beautiful Royal Parks and of course, its excellent shopping. A reminder of Kingston's links with the Saxon times is Kingston's famous Coronation Stone, probably the borough's most notable possession. It currently stands by the historic Clattern Bridge (the oldest surviving bridge in Surrey dating from the 12th century) over the river Hogsmill outside the Guildhall. A silver penny noting the reign of each King set into the plinth of the stone. Tradition has it that seven Anglo Saxon Kings were crowned on the Ancient slab. King John (who granted Kingston its earliest charter) is believed to have built a residence at Kingston. The 13th century column, which can be seen outside Kingston Library, is reputed to have come from this building. Kingston continues to be a thriving place in which to live, work and learn, offering the visitor a wealth of opportunities. With Kingston College and Kingston University situated close to the town centre, there is a large student population bringing youth vibrancy to the commercial centre, whilst the river and neighbouring Hampton Court provide the opportunity to enjoy a leisurely trip through the ages. However you choose to spend your time in Kingston we hope you have a rewarding visit. Population 147,000
