How to get to St Mary’s Church, Putney……….

St Mary’s Church is next to the river at the southern end of Putney Bridge.
It is in a controlled parking zone, so we recommend you come by public transport.

Putney is very well-served by buses, tubes, and the rail network………..

By Bus:  Many bus routes go through Putney. Here are a few useful ones:

From Piccadilly Circus to Putney Common, take a number 22

From Hyde Park Corner to Putney High Street, take a number 14

From Oxford Street to Putney High Street, take a number 74.

Other routes include 220, 270, 424, 430, & 485 [stops outside of the church]

By Tube:  Take the District Line to Putney Bridge station on the Wimbledon branch, and then simply walk south over Putney Bridge, (5mins walk) or to East Putney station and walk west along the Upper Richmond Road and then north down Putney High Street to Putney Bridge (15mins walk).

By Rail:  Very frequent trains from London Waterloo, via Clapham Junction, to Putney Rail station. From Putney Rail station there are fairly frequent trains to Richmond, Hounslow and out towards Windsor. Walk north down Putney High Street (5mins walk).
