Living in Barnes

Barnes is something of a hidden jewel in London’s crown. Its historic streets are lined with fine architecture and English charm, which gives the area an unmistakable village vibe despite its location in the heart of SW London (with speedy links to the City, might we add). Excellent schools, gourmet cuisine, plenty of green space and a surprising sporting pedigree all give Barnes its reputation as a prime residential location in our capital. Learn more about the last true village in London below.

1066 and all that

Barnes first appeared in the Domesday Book of 1086, just twenty years after the Battle of Hastings, and some of its stunning Norman architecture remains intact – revel in the historic beauty of St Mary’s Church for evidence of Barnes’ centuries-long history. Barnes is also intricately linked to the Magna Carta, being the first port of call for Stephen Langton (the Archbishop of Canterbury at the time) after he signed the document in 1215. Barnes has need its fair share of notable residents too: Milbourne House was the one-time residence of Henry Fielding, the novelist and founder of London’s first police force. The iconic village pond and green date way back to the sixteenth century, and the more recent Barnes Railway Bridge, spanning the River Thames, is a glorious leviathan of Victorian engineering. And there’s plenty more history where that came from…

Georgian grandeur

Unsurprisingly for somewhere with so much historical pedigree, much of the town’s housing stock is period and of an excellent quality. It boasts some of the oldest riverside homes in London, complete with stunning Thames-side views, and deserves its reputation as a rival to Hampstead and Highgate for the title of “prettiest London village”.

Eat, drink…shop…and be merry

Barnes has a strong community feel, fuelled by its range of independent shops, cafés and restaurants. Indeed, a report in 2014 found that Barnes has the highest concentration of independent shops in the UK! There’s plenty to enjoy here: including cheese-buyer’s delight The Real Cheese Shop, fine wines and expert sommeliers over at Lea and Sandeman, and the Scandi-style lifestyle boutique, Nina. There’s also an M&S food hall – and who doesn’t love those? The weekends often usher in even more of an indie vibe, with the Saturday Farmers’ Market setting up camp by the village pond.

For the serious gourmet, there are some great local restaurants such as Riva, the Sun Inn with its beautiful terrace, Annie’s and a luxurious Rick Stein restaurant to boot. Increasingly, fusion experiences are springing up, such as Olympic Studios, with its restaurant downstairs and cinema above. You won’t be running out of things to do when living in Barnes, especially with new independent ventures popping up seemingly every week!

Green spaces

Barnes abounds with green spaces, making it perfect for young families. The Wetlands Centre is a hundred-acre project opened to mark the Millennium. It’s home to bird populations not found elsewhere in the capital, such as the beautifully-named Gadwall and Northern Shoveller – an ornithologist’s and rambler’s paradise, if that meets your fancy! The village pond and green are a natural recreational and social centre within the village. Barnes Common features acres of green space, and the stunning Richmond Park with its resident deer population is also close by. Great for family trips and moments of quiet contemplation away from the bustle of the city.

Sporting pedigree

History in Barnes is not limited to its architecture. A former master of St Paul’s School, Richard Mulcaster, is credited with developing football into the game we play today, and Barnes Rugby Football Club claims to be one of the oldest sports clubs in the world. Then of course there’s the Varsity Boat Race, an event made more exciting by the fact that the Barnes shoreline offers some of the best views of the battling blues.

Education for all

Barnes boasts some of the best independent and state schools in London, with many of the state schools having outstanding Ofsted ratings. James Anderson supports the excellent Thomson House School, a free school founded in 2014. Renowned independent schools include The Harrodian School, St Paul’s, Ibstock Place and Tower House School, in addition to a range of highly-rated nursery and prep schools in the area.

How do I get there?

Waterloo and Central London are thirty minutes away on trains departing from Barnes and Barnes Bridge Station, both of which are located in zone 3. The underground at Hammersmith is easily accessed in a 20 minute bus ride.

    I would highly recommend Andrea Miranda from James Anderson. Andrea is our new property manager and she is very helpful and efficient regarding any questions about our property. Thank you Andrea.

    Zana has been nothing but kind and available for us when we looked for our new flat. Always very professional but nice, she really helped us finding the right place. Definitely would recommend her and James Anderson letting agents for renting or selling.

    Delighted with quality and professionalism of service from Evren Ergin and Michael Britt at James Anderson in East Sheen – property purchase was very smooth and they diligently kept me up to date with developments – Would certainly recommend to others

    My partner and I were looking for our first place together. A lot of letting agents at other agencies were trying to convince us to break quarantine to view places when we arrived back from a trip. Sheridan was friendly and patient. She didn’t pressure me to make any decisions. She found a perfect place that wasn’t even listed yet for us to look at AFTER our quarantine. It was the first of 7 places we looked at and the place we fell in love with. She even let us come look at it a second time after calling her randomly when we were just walking around the neighborhood wanting to see the flat again. It was an easy and thoughtful process. She communicated quickly between us and landlord, and answered my many random questions I would email. I’m so pleased with this process… but Sheridan couldn’t have made it easier Thank you!! If I have friends looking to move, I’ll definitely recommend James Anderson East Sheen.

    Phoebe from The Barnes branch was lovely! She was very patient, polite and professional. She did a great job in finding the right property during the pandemic!
