All within 40 minutes of central London on the direct overground train. Perfect for families and couples.

About the location

Wimbledon isn’t all about tennis, and there are plenty of things to do in this leafy south west London borough, which is split between two main areas: Wimbledon Village and the town. The former was built up from a medieval village that surrounds the common, while the latter emerged after the railway was built in 1838. Today, the village is known as one of the most prestigious addresses in London.

The blend of chic shops, cafes and bars, set amongst handsome period buildings and open spaces makes Wimbledon Village unique in London. And those of us who work or live here appreciate what a special place it is.

Our Village Farmers’ Market serves up a range of fabulous fresh products and ready to eat goodies, right on the doorstep, every Sunday from 10am to 3pm on the Village High Street.

Founded in 1868 the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club is home of the famous Wimbledon Tennis Championships every summer. The museum is open for visitors all year round to learn about the history of the club and the Championships.

Wimbledon and Putney Commons offer visitors 1,140 acres of calm and tranquillity in the midst of the urban surroundings of Wimbledon, Putney and Kingston-upon-Thames. Designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Special Area of Conservation, the Commons are a mosaic of woodland, scrubland, heathland and grassed recreation areas, along with 40 acres of playing fields, a golf course (believed to be the longest continually played course in England) and nine ponds. They are the home to a wide variety of bird, animal and plant life. Being an unfenced Common, the whole area is open to the public 24 hours a day throughout the year.

Cannizaro Park, with a history dating back to its years as part of the Duke of Cannizaro’s Estate and its transition to a public Park when Merton Borough Council adopted it in 1949, is a well loved and popular park. Its Grade II listed status is due to some of the rare and exquisite plants which are all around the park. It has some superb trees and shrubs, which are attractive to both the horticulturalists and the gardeners as well as those who visit; come for a walk or a picnic or simply to find some peace and quiet.

Cannizaro covers some 35 acres of open land on the edge of Wimbledon Common and was a private garden for about 300 years. It is only in the last 60 years has the land been open to the public.
