The Tourist Information Centre is located here, in the Market House.
Here you will find all the information you might need re the local and regional surrounds. I have been here once and found them to be friendly and helpful.
It has won numerous awards for its outstanding service to the community and visitors.

Kingston Museum was built in 1904. The building and its galleries were restored between 1992 and 1997and include a Lottery-funded 'Town of Kings' Gallery, telling the story of the Borough from Saxon times. The Museum and Heritage Service operates on two sites and comprises a Museum, Local History Room and an Archives Service.
Opening hours: daily 10am to 5pm except Wednesday and Sunday.
The Museum has three permanent galleries: Ancient Origins, Town of Kings and Eadweard Muybridge. There is also an Art Gallery for special exhibitions. The Local History Room holds a large and growing collection of local history research material.
The Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames is the oldest of only four Royal Boroughs in England and Wales. It was awarded the title because it was the place where seven Anglo-Saxon kings were crowned and the name, derived from Cyningestun, means royal estate or palace. The stone used in the coronation ceremonies can be seen outside of the Guidhall: a silver penny from the reign of each Saxon king being set into the stone's plinth.
This is a rather old church that looks as if has seen better days with a rather old Tudor building next to it.
Just wander around the shopping precinct and market area and you will come across several street performers which are quite good but did not appear to be earning too much money.
Inside the grounds of the Guildhall is The Kings Stone. it was built in 1935 on the site of clattern house.they needed more space.
In Market Place it houses the Tourist Information Office together with a pleasant cafeteria. Outside, fresh food, market stalls are open from Monday through Saturday
