Situated in the Royal Borough of Kingston, Norbiton is an up and coming area where more and more people who want to make savings on their living costs are signing up to live.
The local railway station was famously used as a location for the British sitcom The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin. The headquarters of the Fire Brigades Union is located close to the station, on Coombe Road.
A notable resident was Cesar Picton, an African enslaved at the age of six, who lived as a servant (though evidently a very favoured one) at Norbiton Place for nearly thirty years from 1761, before becoming a highly successful coal-merchant in Kingston.
Norbiton has four stations: Norbiton on National Rail, Kingston on National Rail, Berrylands on National Rail and New Malden on National Rail. These make it easy to access the centre of London (only 25 minutes to Waterloo) and the area is well served for accessing all of London for work purposes.
There are numerous wonderful places to go to in Norbiton such as the Chessington World of Adventures, Kingston Museum, Out of Order sculpture, Rose Theatre, Stanley Picker Gallery, Kingston University, The Queen's Promenade, River Thames
Come and see the ancient Coronation Stone, a sarsen stone block which is believed to have been the site of the coronation of seven Anglo-Saxon kings. For those of you interested in British history Æthelstan was consecrated king at Kingston in 925, Eadred in 946 and Æthelred the Unready in 979. You could live amongst the great kings of the past!
Norbiton is the location for the One Norbiton Working Together project which is a pilot initiative established in 2010 by the Government and the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames to give people greater influence over local services. It is primarily made up of local residents and businesses, with input from the police, council officials and other professionals.
There are several lovely parks to visit including Bushy Park, Canbury Gardens and Richmond Park.
Our guardians have created a welcoming community in our building who are a good mixture of key workers such as nurses and support staff, engineers and factory workers. We also have a computer programmer, a children's entertainer and an assistant manager for a very large company. So there is a great mix of different personalities for stimulating conversation. They are all good working people looking for the right person to join them as a property guardian.
