Barnes is a suburban district in south-west London, England at one end of the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. It is centred west south-west of Charing Cross in a loop of the River Thames, with Hammersmith Bridge at the north end linking it to the centre of Hammersmith, the nearest entertainment and high rise office area. Barnes has a high proportion of 18th- and 19th-century buildings, a wide variety of convenience shopping on its high street, and includes the "village" area centred on Barnes Pond, making up the Barnes Village conservation area. On the east riverside is the WWT London Wetland Centre. Barnes has fields for the three main national team sports and has woodland by one of its two railway stations on the "Barnes Trail". Its nearest tube station is Hammersmith, with bus access for journeys, for example to the West End. Unlike Mortlake and Hammersmith, it has no dual carriageways. Barnes adjoins the South Circular Road and Putney which forms a rival commercial hub to Hammersmith.
