The Lower Richmond Road - Putney's very own village.....


As the Congestion Charge draws nearer to Putney the Lower Richmond Road with it's wealth of new businesses including art galleries, florists, clothing shops, restaurants and of course, estate agents is an ideal place to head to.

Susie a mother of three who lives in West Putney is a great fan of this part of Putney
"Here you feel part of a community, most of the shops know your name the others know your face and they greet you with a friendly smile of recognition! There aren't many places in London where that applies I am sure! I stroll down and can get my daily needs, treat myself to a coffee and then take the kids to the swings at Leader Gardens and on to feed the ducks - everyone comes home happy!"
