Despite its proximity to the city centre, Putney is known for its relaxing open-air spaces and clean air. It is also popular for outdoor exercises, particularly for joggers and cyclists. Escape from the hectic life of an alpha city like London by visiting one of the many parks here. Even Queen Elizabeth I frequented Putney between 1579 and 1603 for this very reason. Aside from its greenery, Putney is also known for its arts scene. It has plenty of links to renowned sculptors. One of which is Sir Jacob Epstein, who was known for his work in pioneering modern sculpture. After his death, he was buried at the Putney Vale Cemetery. The city even has its own sculpture trail, a permanent site along the southern bank of the River Thames that houses nine sculpture by Alan Thornhill. The city also has its own fair share of historical architecture. The Fulham Palace and its museum are just minutes from Putney Bridge. If you’re looking for an escape from the all the hectic schedules and heavy traffic, Putney’s your place. Check out these 10 great Airbnb vacation rentals below.
