Perhaps you have lived here for one month or 10 years, there are lots of places to explore just using public transport from Kingston. You are in one of the most beautiful countries, so get out there and explore the United Kingdom!
1. Windsor castle
Getting the train from Kingston to Twickenham, then Twickenham to Windsor and Eton Riverside, and you arrive at the historic town of Windsor. Just a 5 minute walk up the hill and you reach the entrance to Windsor Castle. The home of the Queen of England and where Prince Harry and Meghan got married in 2018! A ticket to enter the castle gives you access to the royal state apartments, the grounds including watching the soldiers display at 11am outside and entrance to St George’s chapel where the wedding took place. The most beautiful castle in England – in my opinion!
Trains run from Waterloo to Brockenhurst (1 hour and a half), book a train ticket in advance as they can be expensive. https://www.thetrainline.com/
Hire a bike from just behind the railway station https://www.thenewforest.co.uk/things-to-do/cyclexperience-bike-hire-p779951 and follow trails through the forest to see the wild ponies and beautiful wildlife.
Or take a New Forest Bus tour http://www.thenewforesttour.info/ to see a larger area from forest to seaside! You can get on and off as much as you like.
