Facts About Putney
A notable crossing point over the River Thames for many centuries, Putney as an area has a history much in keeping with the storied past of the city of London. Here are some of our favourite facts about Putney new and returning visitors will find fascinating:
- Putney is the starting point of the famous Boat Race between Oxford and Cambridge Universities, an annual event started in 1829, which today is watched by over 15 million people every year.
- Putney Bridge (formerly known as Fulham Bridge) was the second bridge to ever be built across the Thames, the first being London Bridge, in 1729. The Prime Minister at the time, Robert Walpole, allegedly ordered the construction of the bridge after a frustrating attempt to cross the river, ferries being the only other means of doing so at the time.
- Putney is home to London’s largest Australian and New Zealand communities, who make up part of the population of the Thamesfield ward.
- Putney is in part known for the open space and clean air of Putney Heath. In the past, it was the site of such activities as hawking, hunting, horse-racing and bowling. Today, it is popular among runners and cyclists, and there are a number of fitness and triathlon clubs based in the area.
- Putney Bridge is the only bridge in Britain to be flanked by churches on both ends. To the north lies All Saints’ Church, which saw its churchyard dug up and fifteen graves moved when the bridge was widened in 1926; to the south lies St. Mary’s Church, site of the famous Putney Debates that came about at the end of the English Civil War.

The UK does however benefit from the National Health Service, meaning that huge healthcare costs are not an issue. Residents may need to pay for private or cosmetic surgery or dental care, but these outgoings will still be minimal. Dining out can range from £15 to £55, depending on the calibre of restaurant, but this can be offset by the reasonably low price of local groceries. Money can also be saved on weekly entertainment, including trips to the theatre and cinema, with a wide selection of inexpensive ticket prices and membership options.
