City Living – Focus On Putney

City Living – Focus On Putney

Located on the River Thames in South West London, Putney is a highly sought-after area with nearby links to London and fabulous green spaces, river walks and views. Listed as one of the 35 major centres of Greater London, Putney is the perfect place to call home and is enjoyed by couples, families and young working professionals.

In the Borough of Wandsworth, residents can benefit from some of the lowest council tax rates in London, and as such is desirable for people working in the city. Putney Bridge was the second connection to ever be built across the Thames, preceded by none other than London Bridge itself and was first erected in 1729 to link London with the rest of the South West.

Highlights and Attractions

This friendly neighbourhood has tons to offer, including a leisure centre with swimming pool and gym facilities, green spaces of Putney Heath, Putney Wharf on the river and Putney Exchange an indoor shopping mall. You will never be short on lush greenery in and amongst this vibrant town and it is well known that Putney retains an element of freshness and openness seldom obtained so near London.

In the day you can see rowers or paddleboarders on the Thames. In fact, Putney is famous for the start point of the Oxford Cambridge boat race. If you’re not on the river, you can relax right next to it at Thai Square, a delicious boutique restaurant, or The Boathouse for a family and dog-friendly waterside pub experience. When the sun sets, Tequila Mockingbird is particularly popular, and with it being right on the river, it is the perfect choice for an evening cocktail. You can even take a wander down to The Half Moon, one of London’s longest-running music venues having previously been home to The Rolling Stones. There is something for everyone in Putney, no matter who you are and no matter what time of the day.

Commuting

Putney is situated in Zone 2 and benefits from a railway station and two underground stations. Putney railway station takes you to London Waterloo via Clapham Junction and Vauxhall in just 15 minutes, and East Putney and Putney Bridge underground are connected via the District line to Upminster. Along with these fantastic train links are an array of bus routes that serve Victoria, Fulham, Kensington and the King’s Road.

Putney marks the end of the Beverley Brook Walk, a gorgeous 8 mile walk all the way to Richmond through lush greenery and woodland through Coombe, Wimbledon Commons and the Beverley Brook river.
