With an abundance of family homes, a superb shopping complex and flourishing educational institutions, this historic riverside borough has plenty to offer. What better place to be able to fit our made to measure plantation shutters?
Kingston is now a prime spot for families seeking a safe neighbourhood outside the bustling Central London. One thing that is important to parents of young families is privacy and that is exactly what we offer here at The London Shutter Company with our wooden interior shutters. Although there are no Underground stations going through Kingston, the borough is well served by the South Western Train connections which mostly make up for the lack of tube stations with direct links to London Waterloo.
The Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames is one of our popular areas as it isn’t too far from us here in Battersea. We have fitted many shutters in this borough over the years and have many happy customers in this borough. Being such a popular borough for families there is plenty of opportunities for us to work with many kinds of people from all walks of life with different tastes and styles. The benefits of our window shutters are that they are custom made to measure and fit into any style and home.
With the River Thames stretching along the west side of the borough and the glorious greenery of Richmond Park on the north, Kingston is highly desirable to families and retirees seeking extra space without forking out the high house prices of Central London. Also, being close to the likes of Twickenham, Wimbledon and Richmond there’s plenty of opportunities to attend an event at any of the stadiums. Another great tourist attraction in the area is David Mach’s sculpture called ‘Out of Order’. It is a sculpture of 12 British pillar red telephone boxes leaning against one another with one standing upright at the end with the rest tilted to various degrees where the last one is almost flat to the ground. If you then venture beyond this sculpture you can then find an eclectic mix of unusual and interesting shops.
The Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames is one of only four ‘royal’ boroughs in London and the first recording of the borough dates back to the year 838. The name derived from the royal connection as it comes from the phrase Kinges Tun meaning ‘the king’s manor or estate’. By the tenth century, Kingston had become a coronation centre where Saxon kings were crowned. Past and present there have and still is some great people to live in Kingston such as the newest Spiderman actor Tom Holland, Manchester United Football player Luke Shaw, Young adults author Jacqueline Wilson and photographer, Edward Muggeridge, that pioneered the work in photographic studies of stop motion and motion picture projection in the early 1870s.
