Barnes has a unique 'urban village' feel to it with good
transport links into and out of London. Barnes has a
fascinating mix of unusual gifts, clothes and food shops
interspersed with award winning cafés and restaurants, river
walks and pubs, and a village duck pond.
The WWT London Wetland Centre is a real wildlife haven,
with 100 acres of natural riverside marshland habitat home
to over 180 species of birds. Barnes Common is 120 acres of
nature reserve with Beverley Brook passing through it.
The Barnes Trail is a 2.3-mile circular walk taking in the
riverside, commercial streets and conservation area with
QR coded information. The Thames Path National Trail is a
peaceful nature reserve and walk along the tow path between
Barnes and Hammersmith.
