Putney is an affluent area in the borough of Wandsworth with numerous parks and open spaces in addition to the riverside walkways. Putney Embankment marks the start of the annual Oxford Cambridge boat race.
Putney is bordered by the Thames to the north, Earlsfield to the east, Wimbledon to the south and Richmond to the west. Young families are drawn to the area as the residential properties often have larger gardens and easier access to open spaces than those over the river in Fulham.
The students of nearby Roehampton University have a variety of bars to frequent including Tequila Mockingbird and the Toy Shop in addition to the more traditional pubs such as the Jolly Gardener, the Cats Back or The Queen Adelaide.

East Putney Tube station (District line) and Putney train station serve the area in addition to numerous bus routes. You can get to Waterloo in 20 minutes and Clapham Junction in 6 minutes by train. The increasingly popular river bus provides a more leisurely route into the centre when an alternative to the morning commute on the tube is required.
The main retailing areas in Putney are Putney High Street, and Upper and Lower Richmond Roads. There are plans to pedestrianise parts of Wandsworth Road close to the new Ram Quarter development which will help generate new restaurant and retailing areas within the area.
There are several schemes in the pipeline for properties in and around Putney High Street which will further enhance the commercial offering.
