Putney high street offers a comprehensive range of shopping services, as well as a cinema, and several good restaurants and bars. Putney embankment is the starting point for the annual Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race on the Thames; many rowing clubs are located on the embankment, where you will be charmed by distinguished red brick apartments and pleasant riverside pubs. Accommodation in Putney is very diverse, including large semi-detached houses, Victorian terraces and mansion flats. Large open spaces (such as Putney Heath and Barnes Common) and excellent schools make the area a highly desirable place to live.
