To celebrate our Kingston store’s brand new look, we’re throwing a re-launch party this Friday, and all our lovely local customers are invited. There will be lucky dip discounts, bunny balloons and a special appearance from Eloise, our vintage Citroen van. For anyone coming from further afield, why not make a day of it? We asked our Kingston store manager Bethany for her tips on where to eat, play and shop. You can find full store details here.
Where’s your favourite place to eat in Kingston?
My favourite place to have lunch in Kingston is the Terrace cafe on Apple Market; lovely fresh sandwiches and salads.
Your favourite shop in Kingston?
The Bentall Centre has a huge selection of shops and then they also have Bentalls itself which has loads of high street and designer concessions.
Your favourite place to go on a rainy day?
The cinema and the Rotunda are great on a rainy day. They also have bowling and an arcade to keep the kids entertained.
Your favourite place to go on a sunny day?
Bushy Park is just over the bridge and beautiful on a sunny day – great for a long walk with the kids and dog!
Can you recommend any play groups or events for children?
On the ground floor of Bentalls there is the Caterpillar Café which is soft play for kids and coffee for mums and dads.
Place to meet other Mums?
A great place to meet other mums is the Jellybugs activity group in the Rotunda and Bizzy Lizzys’ which is an award winning family club offering fitness classes, baby classes and events in Kingston.
