Putney is a friendly, peaceful neighbourhood with plenty to do writes one of our hosts. Visitors have enjoyed visiting St Mary’s Church, Putney, a beautiful old church where Oliver Cromwell debated with others the future of the Monarchy. Now refurbished it is a great venue for classical concerts as well as for worship. The Thames at Putney, flowing between Fulham and Putney, is edged by some glorious old pubs serving real ales to enjoy while watching all the boating activity. The Bulls Head, Barnes: situated on the river, this pub plays host to the best in British Jazz, both mainstream and avant garde. Tremendous atmosphere and value.
Barnes itself is a beautiful village only a short walk along the river from Putney. Richmond, an elegant and bustling part of suburban London on the River with great tow path walks, Georgian architecture, good restaurants, two theatres and a huge village green where you can watch the cricket. Easy train ride from Putney. Quick train ride from Putney Station on the overground to Kew Bridge.
Putney is right on the river and you can spend days walking the tow path, stopping off and visiting places on the way, crossing bridges, dropping in on pubs, just enjoying river life and exploring.
