life in kingston

i spent 3 years living in kingston upon thames, and had a wonderful time there. the river is just fantastic, especially in the summer.

kingston is a student town - which gives it a nice relaxed feel, lots of cafes and bars and theres always somewhere to go.


dont go clubbing in kingston, its really really terrible. unless you like awful music (think house, garage, dance) and overpriced drinks. there isnt a single decent indy venue there (apart from maybe the peel, but i wouldnt recommend it). dont waste your time, just go to camden instead. the N77 nightbus home is usually more fun than the night out anyway. just dont fall asleep.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:great shopping, nice bars, lovely river
  • Cons:a bit expensive, bad clubs, transport back from london late at night is by cab or nightbus only (no trains)
  • In a nutshell:i lived there for 3 years and enjoyed every minute of it
