Surbiton is regarded by many as the epitome of well-to-do, middle class suburbia. It was featured in the 1970ís BBC sitcom The Good Life, where a couple move here to become self-sufficient by growing their own vegetables and making their own clothes, to the shock of their neighbours. How many of the locals choose to live this way in reality is debatable, but what is certain is that Surbiton is favoured by professionals and wealthy families attracted by the fast journey time into the city, green spaces and appealing Victorian and Edwardian homes, some of which are detached and rising to seven figures. The Thames and Hampton Court are close by, and nearest shopping hub can be found in Kingston.
