Local area


Raynes Park is a peaceful, green, family-friendly area with a vibrant community feel. A safe and leafy suburb just 20 minutes by train from the centre of London, much of Raynes Park is low-rise, creating a sense of open space that’s a rare find in London. The lively local high street was a Great British High Street finalist in 2015 and offers every amenity you need for day-to-day life.

Less than 1.5 miles away is the chic Wimbledon Village, with a huge array of stylish boutiques, artisan coffee/speciality food stores, along with a plentiful choice of buzzing bars and restaurants. There are also the elegant homes and wide green spaces of Coombe and Copse Hill, a neighbouring conservation area. Raynes Park has an active residents’ association, which helps ensure community support for projects such as tree planting and improved cycling and walking routes.

everything on
your doorstep


Raynes Park offers a range of supermarkets: Waitrose, Co-op and Sainsbury’s are all close at hand. Next door to Raynes Park station, locals are catching on to the newly launched Magnificent Marrow, an eclectic supplier of farm-fresh fruit and vegetables, delicious deli goods and responsibly-sourced meat and fish.

There are plenty of independent shopping treasures just around the corner in Wimbledon Village, where you can get everything from fresh flowers to homewares and art, alongside high street names such as The White Company, Phase Eight, Oliver Bonas and H&M.

eating & drinking

Make time for some delicious Mediterranean food at Lime & Thyme on Coombe Lane, or other local options such as Japanese at cool Hashi with its outside seating, traditional Greek at the family-run Olive Garden, or highly-regarded tapas courtesy of Bar 191. Or, keep it traditional with a warm welcome and good pub grub from the Raynes Park Tavern. For a quick coffee fix, there is a Costa and a Starbucks.

A short wander throws dozens of lively gastropubs your way, like the Hand in Hand with its village feel, or the contemporary gastropub, Fire Stables. The classy Fox and Grapes on the edge of Wimbledon Common is particularly popular when the sun is shining. The area boasts a fabulous diversity of independent restaurants with tempting cuisines such as Argentinian, Vietnamese, French and Brazilian along with well-known high-end names such as Hotel du Vin, Giggling Squid and the Ivy.


Raynes Park is extremely well-placed for both city and country. The overground train line will drop you in Waterloo in 20 minutes, or change for the underground at Vauxhall to whisk you elsewhere in the city.

For a quick escape, beautiful countryside such as the New Forest, Dorset or even the West country are all easily accessible from the M3 or the M25, both within 20 minutes of Raynes Park.

Gatwick Airport is less than 40 minutes away by car, or if you want a day by the sea you can be on Brighton beach within 90 minutes.
