London student accommodation in beautiful Kingston upon Thames
Kingston upon Thames is truly a place like no other. Cool and trendy, yet of huge historical importance, it’s London, but not as you know it. A bustling market town with superb shopping and plenty of student friendly restaurants and night life, Kingston’s riverside location, meandering tow paths, Royal Parks and nearby Palace combine to make it a very special place to live.
In the summer Kingston takes on a real festival vibe with home grown food and art events, Dragon Boat races and world famous Regatta. You can soak up the carnival atmosphere from the riverbanks before heading into town to enjoy a few drinks in one of the fabulous bars.
But that’s not all… jump on a train at Kingston station and you’re in London Waterloo in 30 mins, from there anywhere in the greatest city in the world, London, is within your reach.
