Municipal Borough of Surbiton
Surbiton was a local government district in north east Surrey, United Kingdom from 1855 to 1965. Until 1855 Surbiton was administered as part of the parish of Kingston upon Thames. In that year a body of improvement commissioners was formed by a local act of parliament to govern the area. The Local Government Act 1894 reconstituted the Improvement Commissioners District as an urban district, and Surbiton Urban District Council was formed to replace the commissioners.
Horton is an area to the west of the borough of Epsom and Ewell in the English county of Surrey. It borders on Chessington. It gave its name to the Horton Light Railway which served a number of the psychiatric hospitals in the area.
Horton Light Railway
The Horton Light Railway was built in 1905 to transport materials for building London County Council's Long Grove Asylum to the west of the English town of Epsom. It never (officially) carried passengers, its main purpose being to carry building materials and coal and other supplies to Long Grove and the other psychiatric hospitals in the Epsom Cluster. The railway connected with the mainline network near to Ewell West railway station.
Vampire (roller coaster)
Vampire is an Arrow suspended swinging roller coaster at Chessington World of Adventures theme park in London, England. It opened in 1990 in the new Transylvania area, and was designed by John Wardley. It originally featured bat-themed trains, which were later replaced with floor less models. The trains hang from the track, and swing freely as the roller coaster completes the course. It has two lift hills, featuring many dives and turns throughout.
Rattlesnake (roller coaster)
Rattlesnake is a steel wild mouse style roller coaster ride which opened in 1998 at Chessington World of Adventures. Due to local planning restrictions (a result of the park being on green belt land) the land designated for the ride area was excavated, resulting in the ride being partially submerged below ground level. The layout consists of a steep lift hill, sharp turns and small airtime hills. Essentially, the rollercoaster starts slower and then starts dipping and twisting.
Horton Country Park
Horton Country Park is a wooded recreation area situated on land to the west of Epsom, Surrey. Part of the area is occupied by Horton Park Children's Farm. The Horton Light Railway used to run through this land from Ewell West railway station to the five psychiatric hospitals owned by the London County Council, known as the Epsom Cluster. Parts of the landscaped grounds of these hospitals have now been incorporated into the country park.

It is adjacent to Chessington South railway station operated by South West Trains and connected by bus routes 71 and 467. It has been rebuilt as part of a £2.50 project funded by the local church.
Rameses Revenge is a Top Spin ride at Chessington World of Adventures theme park in London, England, introduced in 1995. It was the main focus of advertising for the park in that year, and was also widely featured in the British media, even being featured in its own segment by the ITV Evening News. The ride was manufactured by Huss Rides, a German company who had previously made Chessington's Black Buccaneer ride.
Kingston Institute of Tamil Culture
The Kingston Institute of Tamil Culture (KITC) is a Tamil school in Tolworth, Kingston, London, England. The Institute was formed in April 1986 mainly to serve the linguistic, cultural and social needs of the Tamil community in the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames and its neighbourhood. The main aim was to teach language and culture to the children who are born here to enable them to learn and preserve the rich heritage of Tamils.
Ace of Spades (junction)

It is situated at the junction of the A243 Hook Road and the A3 Road, known as the Portsmouth Road, as well as the conclusion of the A309 Kingston Bypass. It takes its name from a once well known 1930's roadhouse at the same location.
