My Guide to Kingston Upon Thames


As many of you are coming far and wide to visit my Pretty Pastel Style Book Launch & Fair event on Friday 22nd March I thought I'd compile a mini guide to Kingston Upon Thames
 Travel / Parking Info HERE:
So Market House the venue for the event is situated in the center of Market Place surrounded by a lovely Ancient Market with fresh fruit & veg stalls, artisan breads and a fab Flower stall. 
Shops around Market House include Cath Kidston, Joules, Fired Earth, Sweet Revenge, Patisserie Valerie, The White Company, Lakeland, Halfords, Laura Ashley, Whistles, TKmaxx is also nearby and has a big home section which I love!
The BEST place for lunch is The Terrace Eatery, they make delcious sandwiches, Jacket potatoes & Salads its situated just behind the market no.7 Apple Market. I'm also a fan of Byron's Burgers Riverside at Jerome Place Charter Quay and Jamies Oliver's Italian
Zara Home, Oliver Bonas and Huttons are all inside the Bentalls Centre

To get to Old London road you need to head From Bentalls down Clarence Street, pop into Tiger on your way and then lookout for the Red Telephone boxes and sign for Old London Road your find Kingston Antiques, Fabric Land (Aladins cave for fabrics & Haberdashery) and That Vintage Shop all well worth a look in.
 If you have any time left there's a big John Lewis, a lovely Space NK shop, an Old fashioned Sweet shop and all the main high street & designer shops you find in most big towns - Hope you have fun while your visiting The Royal Borough of Kingston Upon Thames!
