Raynes Park  

Raynes Park isn't the best place for a full-on night out on the town - but then it doesn't need to be as it's so near to wimbledon and wimbledon village and easy to get back to from london center. The Cavern (near the West barnes lane/coombe lane traffic lights) is a good place for pre-beers or if you're not out on a big one.

Raynes Park Pubs in Raynes Park  

There are only three pubs in Raynes Park centre although there is another nearby at Wimbledon Chase.
Of the three the Junction Tavern is a basic boozer, the Cavern is small a bit noisy and generally attracts a younger drinker and the Raynes Park Tavern(by the station) is a good all round pub serving reasonably priced food all day.

Raynes Park Great Japanese noodle/ramen place in Raynes Park  

On the high-street, next to the laundrette. Called Nosh-Nosh and apart from a fab menu with mouthwatering japanese food (including sushi and sashimi), it plays true time-tunnel music from the 80s to give that special atmosphere. Simple decor and polite service. Try it!

Raynes Park Cafe Marquee - great little cafe that turns into a nice restaurant at night  

On the hight street just opposite the station and next to Barclays. We first discovered this as a morning-after cafe doing great english breakfasts but without all the grease (try the "Double Monty" if you're particularly hungry!!). They also do veggie english breakfasts which are good too. At night it turns into a really nice little restaurant with excellent food (and even better desserts). A little pricey but not bad at all for the area.

Raynes Park Public Transport  

Public transport is pretty good. Regular trains to London and to places like Kingston.

Raynes Park Great location  

I've been in Raynes Park for 4 years now since graduating from Uni. ok so it's not the most hip-happening of places but it has a lot going for it. Excellent transport is one thing - commuting into the city is easy with regular trains and 19mins to waterloo, a few stops the other way and you're in Kingston (lots of shops), then you've got the A3 which means by car you can be out of london in a matter of minutes (try driving in putney on a saturday morning - not fun). Bus routes are really well serviced too (and there are night buses from Trafalgar Sq that call in at Raynes Park). Getting to wimbledon and the village is really easy (walkable if you don't mind the hill!) or a short bus ride. Wimbledon common's not too far and there are some good little parks for kicking around footballs in. It's got some nice little food joints if you want to stay local, including a fantastic curry house (House of Spice) and it's also got a good selection of take-away places. The 8am-10pm 7 days a wee

Raynes Park Raynes Park to Trafalgar Square  

Easy. Get a train to London Waterloo. From there you can either:

1) Cross over to Waterloo East and take a train one stop to Charing Cross;

2) Take the Bakerloo Line Underground two stops to Trafalgar Square;

3) Take the 139 or 176 buses over Waterloo Bridge (good scenic views crossing the river);

4) If it's a nice day, you can walk out of the Station and through the Shell Centre, across the Hungerford Footbridge and along Northumberland Avenue - takes about 10-15 minutes

A one-day travelcard zones 1-4 covers all these options.

Raynes Park Oops!  

No 2 should have been Bakerloo Line to CHARING CROSS - hasn't been called Trafalgar Square station for years! Bakerloo Line exit brings you right into the square, though - if you take the Northern Line you'll end up walking miles.

Raynes Park  

Not sure of the name but they're near to the station opposite boots and next to "favorite chicken" (or some other KFC lookalike..). You can just turn up and get a cab most times and they're very reasonable - £3.50 for a ride up to the village.

Raynes Park Aerial Cars - Beware at certain times of day  

I used to use Aerial Cars to get me to and from work regularly when time was of the essence. I used them solidly for two years but now don't bother to use them since the day I was waiting for a cab and waited the 15 minutes a 'new' controller asked me to wait. After calling back to find out where the cab was, I was told I had only called 'five' minutes ago and was greeted with sarcasm and rudeness from this ape at the end of the phone. All this despite him admitting his computer wasnt working properly and telling me orignally that I had called five minutes before I called for the second time! Go to Elite near Raynes Park Station, more polite and reliable.

I've found aerial to be a lot better than Elite. Iíve bad experiences w/ Ellite and they never have cabs available.

Raynes Park Council Tax  

We pay £1015 and we are on band D. I reckon that's a hell of a lot. Check with other Councils to see what they charge. Wandsworth is really cheap comparatively.

Raynes Park Council Tax  

I also pay band D £1015 which I think is fairly average for London & the suburbs. It is a bit unfair to compare to Wandsworth as they are one of the lowest if not the lowest in the UK. I recall that Poll Tax in Wandsworth used to be zero.

Raynes Park Dentist in Raynes Park  

I would recommend Shaftesbury Dental Practice in Durham Road. They have provided dental care for my whole family (including children) for the last 9 years. They are very good.

Raynes Park Dentists  

I stopped going to the dentists in Raynes Park when I couldn't find one who either wanted to spend most of my appointment time trying to flog me dental insurance or wanted to charge me £10 for a missed appointment when my best friend was killed in a car accident. This bugger even tried to negotiate with me on the phone for a £5 reduction as it was " a difficult time". I go to Central London now where dentists seem to be more bothered with my teeth than where their next ferrari is coming from

Raynes Park raynes park dentist  

you are right may be shaftesbury dental practice in durham road are good but they dont do NHS treatment.
i would say raynes park has not a good dental practice because i've been calling some of them which they all charge for a missing appointmet (the wimbledon dental practice in 86
worple road chrges £40) ,it's quite expensive though as it happened to me once therefore i had to withdraw my file from there.
i used to go in one in north london(finsbuty park :blackstock road) and they had a very good service eventhough NHS treament so it was no difference

Raynes Park does not have a large supermarket. It does have a Co-op which opens for long hours even on a Sunday. There are loads of large supermarkets nearby. Wimbledon is a short bus ride away.

Raynes Park Raynes Park - Highly Recommended  

Raynes Park is very nice to live in. I have lived there for the last 9 years having lived around the UK. It provides an easy access to Wimbledon town centre and village, Kingston, Sutton and London. Transport facilities are very good with easy access to trains, buses and the tube. Easy access to Heathrow/Gatwick (40 min by car) and has a slightly more affordable but good housing than Wimbledon.

If you have children then there is plenty of schools to choose from (state and private), sport facilities (David Lloyd and other gyms), parks including Wimbledon common and Richmond park, cinema and theatre (Wimbledon).

It feels safe!

In other words: Highly recommended

Hope this helps
