Barnes is a jewel nestled in South West London - it's a fantastic neighbourhood with a village feel to it. Whether you're ambling along by Barnes Pond or strolling down the high street, you'll feel right at home in Barnes the second you arrive.
In Barnes you'll find the London Wetland Centre (a fantastic nature reserve), the Riverside Gallery (home to lots of contemporary fine art), and also Barnes Jewellery Co, a lovely old traditional jewellery shop.
As well as the national chains of shops and restaurants you'd expect to find on any high street, you'll also find lots of independent traders and fantastic boutiques. Barnes is a little off the beaten track but it's a gem of a place just a stone's throw from London. Of course if the slightly laid back vibe is something you feel you need to escape every now and then, a short journey by bus or train will deliver you directly to central London. Central London needs no introduction - there are thousands of shops, attractions, restaurants and bars to help keep boredom at bay.
There are lots of lettings on offer in and around the Barnes area - including 18th and 19th Century homes that have been converted to apartments and flats. No matter what your reason for seeking a home around the London area, Barnes is a location that will please even the pickiest movers.
