Wimbledon Village   Local Area

A charming village

Wimbledon is indeed unusual. It has the picturesque appearance of a rural village, nestled on the outskirts of 460 hectares (1140 acres) of magnificent heath land, all within 9 miles of central London.

The bustling village centre is filled with colourful boutiques, delicatessens, cafés and individual grocery stores. Horse riders from the nearby stables are often seen riding through the High Street, the sounds of the hooves resonating from the walls and roofs of period architecture. Sounds that have been familiar to Wimbledon’s residents for countless generations.

In addition to a large selection of local amenities, The Village contains some of the highest rated schools in the country, including the internationally acclaimed Kings College School and the highly rated Wimbledon High School.

To the north of The Village is the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club. Wimbledon town centre is less than a mile to the south east of The Village. This dynamic shopping area is home to both well known and independent retail stores. You will find the Centre Court Shopping Centre, the acclaimed New Wimbledon Theatre, The Piazza, cinemas, health clubs, restaurants, cafes, nightclubs as well as a collection of historic places of interest.

Welcome to an unusual village that mixes beauty with practicality. Wimbledon. But don’t just take our word for it...
