Why not explore the nearby areas of Roehampton, Barnes, Putney, East Sheen, Mortlake, Southfields, Wandsworth, North Sheen, Chiswick and Barons Court

"Putney Heath has been known throughout history to be a meeting place for highwaymen. Caught in the Green Man pub in 1795, Jeremiah Abershaw was subsequently executed, with his body displayed on the heath as a warming to others on what has now become known as 'Jerry's Hill'."

The high number of young residents in Putney make it a perfect place to settle if you are coming down to London for the first time...

SW15 quote

Matthew Williamson

Being by the river at Putney is the prettiest, most replenishing spot in London...

Gary Howorth

Barnes Common is the perfect place for picnics or lazy, sunny evenings.

What locals say about SW15

  1. It has a rural feel, with the heath nearby and a short walk to Richmond Park. Despite being quiet and green, it's only moments from Putney where there are rail links and all the shops and restaurants.

  2. Living in an award-winning apartment overlooking majestic Richmond Park, with only the sound of geese in the nearby pond, you would not believe that you are just 45 minutes from Piccadilly Circus. Surrounded by greenery and tucked away pubs and restaurants, Roehampton is definitely London's most rural and yet 'to be discovered' haven.

  3. Putney is close enough for everywhere I need to go and far away enough that its quiet!

  4. Putney is so close to so many parks, commons and wilderness areas. Like being in the country even through you are still in central London

  5. Putney is a very safe feeling community area with many active persons who participate in running, cycling, rowing, sailing, etc. The easy access to Richmond park, Barnes, and the river provide a country feel while being a short commute to the city center.

  6. Love the area, lovely residential streets and fantastic pubs nearby. Great connections to London, with a train station and tube station in Putney.

  7. Tube access at Putney Bridge, overland train access at the top of the hill - great buses. The best thing is walking home over Putney Bridge on a warm summer's night and looking at the river - it seems to divide work from home life. Great pubs, fantastic shopping, easy to leave London for the weekend - need I go on??

  8. Putney is a beautiful bustling town within a big city. An easy commute into the city via train to Waterloo or simply hop on the underground or bus in to Central London. However, there is no need to travel at the weekend because Putney provides everything you need on your doorstep. The High Street is home to a wide variety of shops, supermarkets, hairdressers, boutiques and a wide range of restaurants - I am still discovering new places to eat after 4 years of living here! Wonderful homely pubs and upcoming bars, live music and great food. And last but not least, the River Thames and local parks provide an excellent setting for a relaxing walk or spiriting run to escape the hustle and bustle...
