In the Royal borough of Kingston upon Thames stands the Coronation Stone, said to commemorate the place at which 6th and 7th century Anglo-Saxon kings, including Ethelred the Unready, were crowned. But Kingston's history stretches back much further than this, a settlement is thought to have existed at the site on the bank of the Thames for thousands of years. Relics have been discovered in the area that are hundreds of thousands of years old and extensive Roman remains have also been uncovered.

Kingston was also home in the early twentieth century to the Sopwith Aviation Company, makers of the legendary Sopwith Camel, the plane that famously dueled with the Red Baron in the skies above Europe in World War One. The borough also contains London's largest area of parkland, Richmond Park, which is used for sport and leisure purposes by many of the borough's 150,000 inhabitants.
