    The Tourist Information Centre is located here, in the Market House.

    Kings Stone

    by Fen Updated Oct 18, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.
