Kingston-on-Soar is a village and a parish only 9 miles south-east of Derby, 10 miles south-west of Nottingham city and 120 miles north of the city of London. The parish covers 1,200 acres. There are four centres of population within the parish: the village, Kinston Hall, New Kingston and Kingston Fields.
The village is on the east bank of the River Soar. Across the river is Leicestershire. If you are planning a visit:
- Exit the M1 motorway at intersection #24.
- I know that rail service runs by the west side of the village, but I do not know if the trains stop at Kingston. They used to stop at a station called Kegworth that was in this parish. I do know that the East Midlands Parkway opened up in 2008 at Ratcliffe on Soar, which will get you close.
