68-69 Barnes Hight Street, Barnes London SW13 9LD
Nestled in a bend of the River Thames, Barnes is an affluent and popular suburban district with a village atmosphere in the London Borough of Richmond-upon-Thames in south west London. On the west riverside, Edwardian and Victorian properties line the streets near Barnes Pond, forming the ‘Barnes Village’ conservation area. On the east riverside, by the London Wetland Centre, converted depositories, modern apartment buildings and townhouses form the exclusive Harrods Village and Barnes Waterside developments.
Bordering Mortlake, ‘Little Chelsea’ is a small enclave of streets lined with pastel terraced cottages surrounding White Hart Lane. In 2017 the borough topped Rightmove polls as the happiest place to live in London.

Parks & Recreation
Barnes has retained woodland on the Barnes Trail and the Thames Path provides a public promenade along the river. Sporting facilities include several playing fields and many local clubs. Surrounded, as it is on three sides by the River Thames, it is hardly surprising that Barnes’ premier sport is rowing.
Both the famous Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race and the spectacular Head of the River Race are run on championship courses between Mortlake and Putney, which pass through the Barnes bend. Barn Elms Sports Trust and Rocks Lane Sport Centre are amongst the many community hubs offering sporting provisions in the area.
Restaurants & Shopping
Barnes has an eclectic selection of cafés and eateries, award-winning restaurants and historic pubs to choose from. Rick Stein, located on the river at Mortlake High Street, serves fresh seafood dishes prepared to its namesake’s recipes and much-loved Orange Pekoe has been recognised as one of Tatler’s best places in London to have afternoon tea. Further favourites include Gail’s, Annie’s and critics’ choice and celebrity haunt, Riva, which offers Northern Italian dishes from the Lombardy region.
There are a number of shops and independent boutiques in the area. B London Boutique is a trend-led luxury lifestyle store and beauty spa on Barnes High Street.
