Wimbledon is famous, mainly because of the popular global sporting event that takes place every year here – The Wimbledon Championships at the All England Lawn Tennis Club. If you want to live on the doorsteps of the All England Club, then Wimbledon Park will be the place for you. With plenty of detached houses as well as large terraced properties in The Grid area, buyers have a wide range from £1 million plus to choose from. The real benefit of the Wimbledon Park district is that the high quality homes offer outstanding value compared to other areas in close proximity.
Opposite the All England Club is Wimbledon Park itself, designed and created by Capability Brown, the landscape architect, known as England’s greatest gardener. The centrepiece of the park is the boating lake, with an abundance of birds that visit, from cormorants, herons and colourful Egyptian geese. The park has lots of tennis courts and other activities, too.
This attractive district of Wimbledon has plenty of appeal, from the large park, which gives the area its name to the leafy streets of Edwardian and Victorian properties. You’ll find cute parades of shops and easy access to Wimbledon town centre and beyond – plus, if you like tennis, you’re handy for the All England Club too.
The park itself was first laid out in the 18th century by master landscape designer Capability Brown. Today there’s a large boating lake, children’s playground with superb water play facilities, a café and much more. Sports facilities include tennis courts and a watersports centre for sailing and kayaking on the lake. The urban oasis of Wimbledon Common isn’t far away either.
You’ll find a growing selection of independent cafes and restaurants on Arthur Road and Leopold Road, as well as galleries, delis, homeware shops and boutiques. There’s also a well-established farmers market in Wimbledon Park Primary school’s grounds every Saturday. For larger purchases, Wimbledon town centre is close-by with Centre Court shopping centre and a range of high street names.
Nearby towns and villages
Wimbledon Park is close to some lovely places to visit. It is within driving distance to Balham, Kingston, Battersea, Putney and Richmond. There are great shopping areas in Wimbledon town centre, Northcote Road in Clapham, as well as walks wherever you go, on the commons, parks or along the River Thames.
Theatres showing the best that London has to offer
The classic Wimbledon theatre offers the very best of London shows and there is also probably the best children’s theatre in London, based in Wimbledon, the Polka Theatre.
Wimbledon has many shops on its high street as well as the Centre Court shopping centre – including Holland & Barratt, H&M and Toni & Guy – plus Ely’s town centre department store, which has been open since 1876.
The town also has a wide range of pubs, bars and restaurants, but many residents head up the hill to Wimbledon Village, which is characterised by independent boutique-style shops and high-end restaurants.
World-class sport is all around you in Wimbledon, including two of the biggest global sporting events to enjoy. The All England Lawn Tennis Club hosts the Wimbledon championships annually. A short walk or cab ride will take you to the famous gates of the grounds of the All England club, where the championships take place at the end of June into July each year.
The other famous sporting occasion starts in Putney; the Oxford and Cambridge boat race. You can stand toe to toe with the rowers as they take their vessels from the boathouse in Putney to the river, before they row 4 miles to the west at Mortlake.
Also, only five miles away is the famous Twickenham stadium, the home of English rugby, where you can watch all the top international sides play against England. If you are a soccer fan, then Fulham and Chelsea football clubs are less than 4 miles away, too – all an easy taxi ride.
