Kent Road
Kingston upon Thames, Surrey

Formerly known as Kingston Meat Market

The Kingston Meat Market used a cover a large area of southern Kingston Town Centre, by Kingston University. Once it closed down the land was redeveloped, and now has new University buildings, The Bittoms shopping centre, and a new housing development.

Based on surrounding landmarks, filming looks to have taken place on land now occupied by the University; however, parts of the wall seen in the story are still visible in the private car park of avanté.

How to get here:

»

Bus: Kingston Bus Map - Bus stop Kingston Hall Road, stops UL/UK. Walk west along Kingston Hall Lane, and South Lane/Kent Road is on the left. +

»

Road: M3 - Exit at junction one (Sunbury) onto the roundabout and then follow the A308 east towards Hampton Court. Then continue along the A308 to Kingston, crossing the river and then following the one-way system to Clarence Street (A420). Head along here onto the dual carriageway (Wheatfield Way), and then turn right at the roundabout onto Kings Hall Road. The next left is South Lane/The Bittoms. Parking: roadside (only checked on Sunday). +
