New Malden is a leafy suburban town and shopping centre in south west London in the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames. Its centre was developed in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries with 2 to 3 bedroom terraced houses. Further out are larger detached and semi-detached houses from the 1930s.
New Malden is bounded to the north by the affluent Coombe Hill and to the south and east by the busy A3 trunk road. To the west it merges with Kingston upon Thames. A minor tributary of the River Thames, the Beverley Brook flows just east of the town.
It has probably the largest expatriate community of South Koreans in Britain. According to the Korean Residents Society, the Korean population in the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames is about 3,500 to 4,500, mostly in New Malden.
New Malden has its own youth theatre, the Green Theatre Company, established in 1986 in a converted cricket pavilion at Barton Green.
