London’s Headline attractions:
Too many to list, but East Putney is on the District line, with the City Branch stopping by South Kensington (for Hyde Park and Museums), St James’ Park (Buckingham Palace), Westminster (Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, and Westminster Abbey), Embankment (Trafalgar Square) and Tower Bridge. So, easy to get around. The Edgware Road branch will stop by Notting Hill for the markets (market open Saturday mornings only)

Alternatively, the trains from Putney Overground Station run directly to Waterloo for attractions on the South Bank or easy access to the Jubilee Line.

Local Attractions:
Putney is famous for being the start of the Oxford Cambridge boat race, having lots of parks and being close to the river. A few “local” recommendations:

Rent a bike and explore West London’s parks. It’s an easy cycle to Richmond Park (famous for its views of London and deer), Wimbledon Common, or follow the Thames path up the river to Hampton Court Palace. If you’re keen cyclists, it’s about a 4hour cycle to Windsor, and bikes are allowed on the train home (at off-peak hours). Bikes can be rented from (website: hidden), who will also deliver the bike to you.

If you are looking for an indoor cycling workout, there’s a spin studio just across the river "pedalstudio" It’s nothing fancy, but they do new rider deal £12 for a week, so worthwhile if you’re interested in a spin class. Also, the Putney Leisure centre does drop in classes for a fee.

Ferry up the Thames: Instead of taking the underground, it’s a short walk to either Wandsworth Pier or Putney Pier, where ferries (river buses) depart regularly. A nice way to travel and see the city from the water. Some ferries take Oyster Cards- I’d recommend checking schedules

Barnes is the next neighbourhood west of Putney. It’s famous for its greenery and village like feel. Worth a walk up the river to try the Sun pub on the green. There’s also wetland centre with tons of birds and otters. Or you could then walk up the river to Hammersmith Bridge, cross over and explore the riverside pubs (The Dove, Anchor, or we like Crabtree (Rainville Rd, London, Greater London W6 9HA) for fish and chips). Speaking of pints, you can’t stay in London without trying a few. Ridiculous number of pubs in Putney (we’d suggest avoiding the ones on the High Street). They usually allow under 18s in, but they can’t order a pint… A few of our favourites are:
The Boathouse: 32 Brewhouse Ln Right on the river for upmarket pubfare
Dukes Head: 8 Lower Richmond Rd: Local institution with patio
The Normandy: 231 Putney Bridge Road. Friendly Local
Prince of Wales: 138 Upper Richmond Road. Popular gastro pub
The Station: 94-98 Upper Richmond Rd. light and modern pub
Duke’s Head- Pub on the River

Eating in Putney
There’s a few supermarkets near us. Sainsbury’s (-6 Werter Rd, London SW15 2LJ) and Waitrose (Exchange Shopping Centre, Putney High St, London SW15 1TW ‎) are the biggest ones near us. For restaurants, we’re spoilt for choice. A few favourites:

Upper Richmond Road: Pizza Express – relaxed and reasonably priced pizza chain, Valentina’s- Good Italian with inconsistent service and great coffee, Wallace & Co good for breakfast.

Lower Richmond Road- Thai Square- decent Thai on the river, Sushi 54- amazing sushi (will deliver!)

Putney High Street- Wagamma’s- Casual Japanese chain, Pret-a-manger , sandwhich chain good for takeways.

Putney Bridge Road- Glass Dome for Argentina Steak, GBK- luxury burger chain,
I’d recommend the website: toptable They often have deals on with upto 50% off the meal.
