Why move to Surbiton?

Surbiton is almost a hidden gem, as we like to think of it. It has an amazing community that get together and do crazy things and knows how to have fun! With its village feel and yet only 20 into London by train, this is arguably one of the best place to live. The River Thames is right there offering bike paths, walking paths, boats, plus a relaxed life on the river. You are less than five minutes from all the major shops of Kingston and yet you are surrounded by tree-lined streets, old architecture and a beautiful village with everything you need.
