General Introduction

Charter Quay is located at the historic core of Kingston-upon -Thames, 20km south west of the City of London. The area, located between the Thames and the market place at Kingston-upon-Thames, was part of a Saxon royal estate, and was at the centre of Kingston during the Medieval and later periods, when the town was an important market and inland port.
