Kingston upon Thames ‘Did you know?’
- Kingston, which lies approximately 33 feet above sea level, was part of a large ancient parish in the county of Surrey, reformed in 1835.
- It was the ancient market town where Saxon kings were crowned, and the earliest royal borough.
- Kingston was called Cyninges tun in 838, Chingestune in 1086, Kingeston in 1164, Kyngeston super Tamisiam in 1321 and Kingestowne upon Thames in 1589. The name means 'the king's manor or estate' from the Old English words cyning and tun.
- Fine art is a prominent feature in the borough’s history. Both John Hoyland and Jeremy Moon worked from permanent studios in Kingston, and many prominent artists and designers have studied at the university, including Fiona Banner, John Bratby, David Nash and Jasper Morrison.
- Kingston Green Fair, dedicated to promoting sustainable development, was held annually from 1987 to 2008 in Canbury Gardens, next to the river, on the Spring Bank Holiday.
