Hampton Hill is just a little further, with shops, restaurants and a theatre. Visit the many events and activities to celebrate the 500-year anniversary of Hampton Court palace (from where you can take a boat down the river to central London). Take the opportunity to explore the surrounding areas, such as the historic market town of Kingston-upon-Thames, Richmond riverside and Richmond Park. **** PLEASE NOTE : This rental is for a room within the property, which is owner-occupied. You will have full guest access to: * A private room with a double bed for 1-2 people *.

I love to travel and meet new people and have enjoyed hosting and staying with people around the world through various social media....it's such a great way to get to know a place and its people. This is my home and I live here but I'll respect your space and privacy. I'm a sociable person and I'm happy to chat and to help with travel/tourism recommendations or you're free to be totally independent. You'll find me pretty laid back, either way. And if you just want to use the place to sleep between activities that's fine too. Either way, I look forward to hosting you!More

About the neighbourhood
Hampton feels like a real community: people talk to each other. This place gives you a flavour of how London once was - as one of a collection of distinct villages that gradually joined to become the metropolis that is London. Hampton and Hampton Hill have retained a local feel, with independent shops and restaurants, not yet subsumed by the corporate chains that render one high street indistinguishable from another. Aside from easy access to central London (40 minutes direct train service), Hampton also benefits from lovely open spaces, with Bushy Park (the 2nd largest of London's royal parks) and Hampton Court Park on your doorstep. It's a great spot for cyclists and it's possible to cycle from here to Putney and Roehampton via the banks of the River Thames and Bushy and Richmon...
Getting around
Direct train line from Hampton station to London Waterloo (40 minutes) 2 bus services stop at the station (timetables available at tfl): 111 : Heathrow central bus station to Kingston 216 : Staines to Kingston Other bus services a short walk away: R68 : Kew Retail Court to Hampton Court R70 : Hampton shopping centre to Richmond
