Local information about Barnes

In the South West London borough of Richmond upon Thames, the village of Barnes maintains an out-of-London feel, while situated a mere half hour commute from the Big Smoke.

The architecture of Barnes leaves quite an impression; the railway bridge in the village dates to Victorian times and now protected by Grade II listed status, while parts of St. Mary’s Church were erected in the 12th century. The domestic architecture is also notable. Due to Barnes’s riverside location there are a selection of Thames-side period properties that face away from the village, and these family homes are in high demand. The property landscape is completed by a selection of new-build flats and smaller houses elsewhere in the village.

Barnes and Barnes Bridge railway stations - both in Travelcard Zone 3 - ensure that locals are within easy commuting distance of the city, and trains run with frequent service to London Waterloo.

The SW13 postcode is serviced frequently by Housekeepers on our platform. Cleaners can be booked with ease for one-off, weekly or fortnightly cleans, thanks to our great tech!
