Kingston’s Guildhall is described as ‘neo-Georgian’, but looks and feels like the product of the 1930s it is. It is home to the chambers of Kingston-upon-Thames Borough Council and its various administrations and houses a Magistrates’ court in the basement. It does, however, has some impressive features including a marble lined circular entrance hall and a staircase with opaque semi-spherical glass lamps. There is a stunning entrance door with a gold coat of arms above. In the grounds stands the coronation stone by which several medieval Kings were crowned and which gives Kingston its name.

Monday 17th September we were walking around Kingston in the sunshine, and we stopped outside this important Local Government building This iconic building is situated in the heart of Kingston with the Hogsmill River running along side it, with the historic Coronation Stone in its grounds and the Clattern Bridge nearby. It is a stones throw from Kingston Market Place. The current building was constructed in 1935 and is a Grade 11 listed building and is built in a semi circle with a large square tower It is well worth a visit to see this building and it's historic surroundings.

This is where it all happens: the education, the local housing, the council rates and taxes and complaints: nicely kept gardens, impenetrable for the general public to get any real decisions made - staff guarded like royalty, typical local council, I suppose!

I was doing a job here this week and took my time to have a look around whilst here. The building is absolutely stunning, grade 2 listed set in lovely grounds. Well worth a quick visit if you like old buildings.

This is a great historical imposing building in the town centre that is well worth looking at its architectural structures and reading about its history within the city Just outside of the building is the coronation stone which itself is well worth a look
