"Living on the edges of London doesn’t mean missing out on the best of the city. We asked Time Out readers from Zone 3 and beyond to share the reasons they love their neighbourhoods. Here, Ben Tebbs explains what's so great about living in Surbiton
How long have you lived in your neighbourhood?
‘I moved here seven years ago. There’s a cool community feel – everyone knows each other. I love walking along the river Thames and checking out the architecture.’
What makes the area unique?
‘There’s a local skateboarding granny!’"
"Surbiton is a highly sought after residential area located on the River Thames. It has a thriving shopping centre, providing a real mix of individually owned shops coexisting alongside smaller chain store outlets. Bar and café culture is also a growing feature of the centre, with newer venues working hand in hand with the older and more traditional pubs and restaurants.
Surbiton has a number of attractive open spaces including 'Fishponds', formerly the grounds of an 18th century Georgian house. The magnificent Hampton Court Palace and its surrounds are only a short distance further along the Thames." Kingston Council
