About Lower Kingswood
Lower Kingswood is located 20 miles south of London, astride the A217 in North Surrey and includes the surrounding areas of Margery, Mogador and Mugswell. Lower Kingswood possesses what could be thought of as the ideal properties of a modern village.
As well as the A217 providing a direct route into London, the M25 - just to the south - provides easy access to the airports at Gatwick and Heathrow and roads to the coast: the A3 is just 15 minutes away and the A22, A23, A24 and A25 are even closer. Lower Kingswood is also well served by public transport. There are regular bus services which run through the middle of the village and the railway station at nearby Kingswood is served by trains to London Bridge and East Croydon.
To balance out the excellent transport links, Lower Kingswood is surrounded by open ("Green Belt") land. To the west and north lies Banstead Common, to the east, rolling green hills and fields somewhat reminiscent of North Devon. To the south we have both Reigate Hill and Colley Hill - just a short walk away, with their spectacular views over the North Downs and all points south. Add in the fact that there are more golf clubs round here than you can shake a nine iron at and you have a small village where it really is a green and pleasant land.
Lower Kingswood has its own primary school (as well as pre-school facilities) and there are other private and state schools in the surrounding area. There are two churches in the village, plus a few retail shops; there are also a number of pubs and social clubs in and around the village. It also has its own recreation ground offering sporting facilities for bowls and football (as well as a play area for younger children).
With a population of around 2,800, Lower Kingswood is also fortunate in having a number of clubs and groups - run by volunteers - which cater for both children and adults. These help to play a significant role in fostering a sense of community in our village.
Reigate and Redhill are the nearest towns with Banstead, Epsom and Sutton all readily accessible. Each of these towns offer its own entertainment, shopping and sports facilities.
