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.
