Welcome to Putney

Famous as the start of the annual University Boat Race, Putney is an affluent suburb in leafy South West London. Characterised by handsome architecture, a thriving shopping centre and with plenty of parks it manages to retain a small town feel and charm of its own.

Wandsworth Park

Wandsworth Park is a Grade II listed urban park in the Putney district of London, England. The park is situated along the south bank of the River Thames and bordered to the south by Putney Bridge Road. To the west it backs on to offices on Deodar Road, Putney. At the other end there is a large complex of flats. On the opposite side of the river is the Hurlingham Club. The park is 8 hectares in size and is home to over 350 trees of many different species. Putney Sculpture Trail is in the park.
 
Putney has a rich and varied heritage extending from settlements in Neolithic and pre-roman times to the present day. Its location, close to the heart of London and next to the River Thames, makes it an ideal location for both commercial and cultural/leisure activity.
 
Putney Bridge crosses the Thames between Fulham on the north bank and Putney on the south bank. Today’s bridge replaced the old wooden bridge known as Fulham Bridge which was opened in 1729. This had been the first bridge constructed across the tidal Thames in London since the 13th century Old London Bridge. At the time it was the only bridge between London Bridge and Kingston where a bridge had existed from medieval times.

St. Mary's Church (in full, the Church of St. Mary the Virgin), Putney, is an Anglican church in Putney, London sited next to the River Thames, beside the southern approach to Putney Bridge. There has been a centre of Christian worship on this site from at least the 13th century, and the church is still very active today.
