Whether you’re heading to the English capital for the weekend or a week, for business or a holiday, London is a city that boasts more than its fair share of great sights to see, fun things to do and fantastic places to visit.
Places like Kingston upon Thames…
The sun seems to always want to shine here, as Londoners lounge along the river, rowing, paddling, sipping alcoholic beverages in some of London’s finest riverside pubs or coffee at Kingston’s many cafes.
And like everything in London, the township is seemingly steeped in history. Dating back to 838 when Kingston was first recorded in a royal document, the town was later a coronation place for Anglo Saxon kings and many of its beautiful Tudor buildings still stand here today.
As it was hundreds of years ago, Kingston is an active market town with numerous open-air markets taking place around the town on any given week. The best of which takes place in Kingston’s historic market place – which has been in use since roughly 1170 – primarily on weekends.
The town has a weekly Monday market, too, when more than 50 traders descend on the Cattle Market Surface Car Park to sell meat and fresh produce from 9am to 1:30pm. For more information visit Kingston’s official market guide.
