Surbiton is an area of South West London located within the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames. It is situated next to the River Thames, south west of Central London.
Surbiton was created during the 19th century after border lines were altered to accommodate the new London to Portsmouth railway line. Children’s writers Enid Blyton and Alfred Bestall (the creator of Rupert the Bear) are among Surbiton’s most famous historical residents.
Thanks to its plentiful green spaces and riverside location, the area is popular with young families. Many of Surbiton’s schools do well and some are rated “Outstanding” by Ofsted. Property prices are relatively more affordable than neighbouring Kingston, and as such many people buy their first family homes here.
“Family friendly with a relaxed lifestyle.”
