The Pretty Riverside Suburb of Barnes
Barnes is a pretty riverside suburb in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames covering the SW13, SW14 and SW15 areas. Boasting a 40 hectare Wetlands Centre and a historic conservation area, it is one of the most expensive residential areas in London. Located just 5.8 miles southwest of the central area of Charing Cross, it is a leafy residential area which has noticeably less traffic than some of its neighbouring districts. Whilst it does not have its own tube line, it is close to the Hammersmith and Stamford Bridge stops on the District, Piccadilly, Circle and Hammersmith and City lines. It also has two over-ground train stations known as Barnes and Barnes Bridge which provide links to the nearby areas of Chiswick, Putney, Mortlake, Wandsworth Town and Clapham Junction. The town itself has been known to have the highest proportion of independent shops in the UK and is a popular place to shop. As a historic village centre, it has many beautiful old 18th and 19th century buildings located around the historic Barnes Pond area. As well as this, the area is also an excellent place to watch the famous Oxford and Cambridge boat race and is right alongside the River Thames.
