It’s quite a mature and affluent vibe here; restaurants can price out younger couples.

It’s quite a mature and affluent vibe here; restaurants can price out younger couples. Although I think the area has seen an influx of affluent young families in recent years. If you want nightclubs or your doorstep this is not the place; pubs close at midnight on the whole. Most people seem to have either children and or a dog. In the summer people enjoy Dog walks along and or drinks down by the river. Which is lovely but can get very busy. There’s a local sports centre where people play cricket and tennis etc. It’s very quaint down by the duck pond in the centre of Barnes and has food markets etc. Also there’s a nice festive vibe in the winter where you can choose from a number of pubs to enjoy a mulled wine. On the whole a lovely family area but pretty expensive to live here!!

Transport

Barnes is very well connected to central London if you’re willing to walk over the bridge to Hammersmith Tube stop. The bridge is closed which some have found has made their commute into town much harder. But those willing to walk over the bridge won’t be affected. Buses run regularly through Barnes in all directions. If you commute out towards Surrey as I do, the A3 provides a rapid route south of London into Surrey. Castelnau did have a heavy traffic issue at certain times of day before the bridge closed. If you commute into town you may want to check out when the bridge is set to reopen!

Community

Arundel Terrace is a very quiet Street to live on considering its proximity to Hammersmith. The street is a dead end so doesn’t get traffic passing through and finding a parking space is rarely an issue. Residents seem to be made up of a mixture of families, couples and retirees. People are friendly and often greet each other on the street. There’s a line of communal bins at the end of the street for mansion block flats which are collected weekly. We recently had an issue with the bin men refusing to pick up the large stack of cardboard for recycling so this piled up. Luckily some friendly neighbours worked together to clear it up; not an unusual display of community spirit on Arundel Terrace. Anti-social behaviour has not been an issue for me but graffiti is increasingly noticeable and I know of a mugging nearby, a bike theft on the street and a number plate stolen from a car. Arguably issues faved by any London street.

Amenities

Arundel Terrace is situated a stones throw from a row of handy shops including a pub, pharmacy, corner shop, post office, a couple of cafes; there’s a superb Indian restaurant, an Italian and a Chinese takeaway. We are also just a 10 minute walk over the bridge to all the shops etc in Hammersmith and a 20 minute walk back into Barnes village which has a number of pubs, restaurants and a few boutique style shops. If you are looking for busy bars - Barnes is not the place. Amenities are designed to suit family lifestyles.

I love this area although it is quiet there is a huge range of shops and cafes along castelnau and barnes high street.

The lovely river walk , and the leg o mutton is a must , a lovely walk around there with the wildlife and also barnes pond , all the wildlife and a picnic on the green.

Transport

Plenty of bus stops plus the 419 route which travels through the back roads if you need to get to these places, we also have 2 train stations which are both fairly close to the high streets or a lovely walk through the barnes pond .

Community

Parking is great , there is permit times in the morning for your cars but there are free spaces all over , lots of people own houses here and have made them larger lots of different types of people. Young older , teens, many

Amenities

I love this area although it is quiet there is a huge range of shops and cafes along castelnau and barnes high street. The cafes are a huge hit, and we also have a cinema on the high street and a lovely little home decor store . Also hair dressers and nail beauticians so you are never far from what you need and if you need anything more its a 5 min walk over the bridge to hammersmith for some clothes or household shopping.

There is your normal range of high street shops plus alot of different restaurants and pub

The area is suitable for children and everyone. It's safe to a standard but hey that's London for you. You get that everywhere. It's pet friendly and children friendly. Local shops lovely

Transport

There is a variety of transport and is always busy! Peak times there will be alot of traffic and maybe due to weather too might be slight delays but overall efficiencant. Due to covid 19 buses and transports in area are longer wait now which means even more slower. The clearness of public transport is appalling apart from that not bad

Community

The good thing about it everything is local plus alot of places to go and alot of things you and your famliy and friends can do. You get some friendly locals. The bad thing about living on my street you get quite alot of people who mis use and make our streets dirty unfortunately. Plenty anti social behaviour but we do have alot of police here all the time so yes I know doesn't sound good.

Amenities

There is your normal range of high street shops plus alot of different restaurants and pub. It's a very busy modern area! There's is plenty things to do such has shopping and dinning or going out to club. Also for families with children there's the lyric theatre plus many local parks for children to have fun and explore nature. You fancy a change come down to Hammersmith. Friendly locals and plenty to do.
