Welcome to the Lower Kingswood Residents Association (LKRA) website. The LKRA is an organisation run by villagers for villagers and has been in existence for over 60 years. Our aim is to maintain the character of our friendly and active village for its residents.
Lower Kingswood is a small village spread out on either side of the A217 Brighton Road and has a community of about 2,500 residents. Situated in a beautiful part of Surrey, it is surrounded by agricultural land and a mosaic of heathland, grassland and woodland that provides direct access to the North Downs Way and beyond. Its location is ideal, with easy access to central London to the North and the M25 and M23 motorways to the South, providing access to Gatwick and Heathrow International airports and the South Coast. The name Lower Kingswood and the surrounding lands date back to the reign of Henry VIII when it formed part of Nonsuch Palace hunting grounds. Today the village contains many amenities and unique and historical venues such as a grade 1 listed Church, a Community Primary School and a 16th century pub.
