Located in south-west London, Putney is an ancient parish running alongside the south side of the River Thames facing Fulham to which it is connected by a bridge. It appears in the 1086 Domesday Book as Putelei and was a place where Londoners came to escape the capital and enjoy the fresh air.

Putney retains its reputation as a leafy suburban area with a vibrant high street and good restaurant and cafés and a large number of attractive houses, while the nearby Putney Heath offers woodland and open spaces and the pretty Telegraph Pub in the middle.

A vibrant mix of restaurants offering everything from French and Italian cuisine to Indian and traditional British furnish the area, while pubs and bars lend it a lively nightlife. Food lovers will also enjoy the nearby Parson’s Green Farmers’ Market, which takes place every Sunday at New King’s School and includes rare breed poultry and local pies among other culinary delights.

Richmond Park is based to the south west, while rugby fans flock to the nearby Twickenham Stadium. Twickenham is also home to the nearest farmers’ market, where organic meat, Kent fruit and veg and house and garden plants can be found every Saturday at the Holly Road car park.
