Barnes village and High Street is a lovely family orientated shopping and cafe culture place that is a pleasure to stroll along or stop for shopping or food. Really nice

Not much has changed along Barnes High Street but either end is pleasant. At one end is Barnes Pond and the Sun Inn, whilst at the other end is the towpath fronting the River Thames. After that, Barnes is really just housing, albeit some properties...More

The title of this review is not mine, but Time Out and innumerable 'where to live in London' Guides. Barnes is very much a village. It is bounded by the river, Barnes Common and Richmond Park. It is not en route to anywhere and accordingly...More
