Sutton is the principal town of the London Borough of Sutton in South London, England. It lies on the lower slopes of the North Downs, and has the administrative headquarters of the borough. It is located south-south west of Charing Cross, and is one of the eleven metropolitan centres identified in the London Plan.An ancient parish originally in the county of Surrey, Sutton is recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as having two churches and about 30 houses. Sutton's location on the London to Brighton turnpike from 1755 led to the establishment of coaching inns, spurring its growth as a village. When it was connected to central London by rail in 1847, the village began to grow into a town, and further expansion followed in the 20th century. It became a municipal borough with neighbouring Cheam in 1934, and became part of Greater London in 1965.Sutton has the largest library in the borough, several works of public art and four conservation areas. It is home to a number of large international companies and the sixth most important shopping area in London, centred on Sutton High Street. Sutton railway station is the borough's largest, with frequent services to central London and other destinations. Sutton is a hub for filming in south-west London. It is home to the Royal Marsden Hospital and the Institute of Cancer Research, where there are plans to create the world's second biggest cancer research campus.Find what you're looking for from your Sutton holiday, by planning the whole thing with us using our handy United Kingdom trip planner.
