Coombe Lane West links two major town centres, Kingston and Wimbledon.

The A3 trunk road offers fast access to central London and both Gatwick and Heathrow airports via the M25 motorway network. The nearest train station at Raynes Park is within walking distance, though the 57 bus route runs along Coombe Lane West and provides frequent services to Waterloo with its underground links to points throughout the city. The immediate area offers a wide range of recreational facilities including five golf courses, tennis and squash clubs and many leisure centres. The 2,360 acres of Richmond Park, area of outstanding beauty easily accessed from Kingston Gate and Ladderstile Gate, provide a picturesque setting in which to picnic, go horse riding, jogging or just take a leisurely walk. Theatres at Wimbledon and Richmond are also popular alternatives to the West End. There are numerous excellent local schools for all ages, private, state and a variety of international educational establishments many within walking distance.
