Home to London’s second largest park (after nearby Richmond Park), Wimbledon has long been considered a trendy and creative area of London favoured by TV and media workers and presenters. Which is a long cry from its original Iron Age fort which was constructed where the common now sits.
It is most famous for the annual grand slam tennis event (commonly considered to be the start of the ‘rainy season’), the town has a varied and intriguing history for any new locals to discover, as well as some excellent restaurants and independent shops.
