The Kingston Guardian was a weekly free local newspaper covering the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames, in South West London, ceasing to be published in September 2016. It was published once a week, on a Thursday, and is distributed free of charge.
The paper was also sold for 60p at some newsagents and shops around the borough.
It had an average distribution of 30,546, including 1,249 free pick-up copies at supermarkets and estate agents.
The newspaper was owned by regional newspaper publisher Newsquest Media Group's South London arm along with other Guardian titles including the Elmbridge Guardian and the paid-for Surrey Comet. Sadly, due to cuts from Newsquest, the publication ceased to be printed on September 30th, and became part of an amalgamated Surrey Comet.
