Wimbledon Town has everything to offer those looking for a high-quality home with very fast transport links to central London, making it a very popular London town to live. Wimbledon is full of large detached and semi-detached homes from £1 to £5 million along with lots of luxury flats to choose from.
Wimbledon’s high street is a busy and popular thoroughfare with many well-known stores, as well as pubs, restaurants, two cinemas and two very special theatres. Polka Theatre, in particular, is unique as the most popular and successful children’s theatre in the UK.
This well established and fashionable part of London is popular with families and young couples because Wimbledon offers an almost perfect mix of good schools, theatres, cinemas, a wide range of high street brands.
There’s much more to Wimbledon than tennis. Its heritage dates back to the Iron Age as the remains of a fortified village on Wimbledon Common prove. There is also a handful of properties that date from the 16th century and a 19th-century windmill currently undergoing restoration.
The largely Victorian and Edwardian streets around Wimbledon town centre provide a good choice of attractive houses and flats with good access to London’s transport network. In recent years a number of modern apartment blocks have appeared, all offering ideal opportunities for investors and first-time buyers.
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.

Alternatively, the London Underground District Line offers a direct connection to Putney, Earl’s Court and beyond.
One of Wimbledon’s primary attractions is its proximity to a wealth of peaceful green space, with Putney Heath, Wimbledon Common and Richmond Park cutting an almost continuous swathe of open countryside right through the area.
