Barnes is located in South West London, within the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. It is situated in a loop of the River Thames between Charing Cross and Hammersmith Bridge.
Barnes is recorded as far back as the Domesday Book of 1086, and has some of the oldest riverside housing in London. The area has a village feel and is home to an impressive collection of 18th and 19th century buildings which are centred around Barnes Pond. Much of Barnes Village is now classed as a conservation area.
