Harrods Village is situated in Barnes within the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. It sits in a loop of the River Thames between Charing Cross and Hammersmith Bridge.
Described as small but beautifully formed, Barnes has all the qualities of a quintessentially English country village – including its own cricket ground, duck pond and village green. Barnes High Street has a wonderful array of local stores, including The Real Cheese Shop and The Parish Bakery, which offer fresh, locally sourced and produced goods. There are several food and household goods markets held around the Barnes Pond area every month.
There are some excellent restaurants and pubs along the river path at Barnes. Strada is a modern Italian restaurant chain with a beautiful terrace overlooking the Thames that serves up delicious hand-made pizzas, fresh pastas, and risottos. Just along the river is Ye White Hart, a traditional pub making the most of its waterside location. They offer a stunning “all seasons” terrace complete with outdoor heaters, blankets and hot water bottles, a winter BBQ and outside smokery.
Barnes Bridge Railway Station to Waterloo takes less than 25 minutes, while regular bus services include the 33 to Hammersmith, the 485 to Wandsworth and the 419 to Richmond.
