Though there has been a station on the site since 1863, the current Kingston station dates back to 1935 and was completely refurbished in 2010. Today it's a busy commuter stop for South Western Railway services into London Waterloo, and welcomes visitors who come to the ancient market town for shopping and riverside walks.

Kingston's market dates back over 800 years, and is still doing business six days a week; it's a key part of an enduringly popular shopping centre, which mixes winding streets, independent boutiques and big-name retailers. Kingston's other major draw is its Thames riverside, which has charmed visitors since the railway reached the town in the 1860s. The quayside is lined with cafes, bars and restaurants, and river cruises sail the short distance to Hampton Court Palace. A hotspot for rowers, Kingston hosts the Dragon Boat Challenge every July, with teams coming from across the country to take part.
