Of course we've all heard about the tennis but maybe not everyone is aware of this amenity nearby. Part of the urban circle, this Common joins up with Richmond Park to make even more of an area to explore. Probably the original plantation which existed prior to Wimbledon's development, it's been left largely to its own devices for many years... More

I'm there all the time and really enjoy this great and beautiful open space. A really great place to go walking but please keep your dogs on their lead and don't drop litter!

Was ok...I didn't see any Wombles at all. I littered hoping they would come out to make good use of the things that they found but was told to pick it up and put it in a bin or face a £50 fine. Maybe they should have some recycling facilities at womble height so they can reach in and grab... More

I've lived in the are for over 40 years and the cafe has always been appalling. The staff are brusque and the food below average at best. The only things I bring myself to take from here when a friend decides to stop for a refreshment is tea (terrible) or an ice cream (standard ok). How they continue to win... More

I live on the edge of Wimbledon Common, so to me it is not so much a "place to visit" as a part of my local geography. Over the 10 years or so that I've lived here, I've used the common for walks (with and without a neighbour's dog), meetings for lunch at the Windmill cafe, and as the logical... More

If you've come for the tennis or not, This is the place to go. Wonderful walks alone, with the dog or children. On the hills, by the lake or through the trees-not forgetting the windmill and on your departure or return the is the restaurant next door offering home cooked snacks and teas

Actually, the Common is beautiful all year round - even in winter (as long as you are dressed appropriately!) I find the nicest is in Spring and Summer where you can actually enjoy the park in fine weather (occasional British pouring rain and thunder aside!) Keep the park clean and beautiful and let everyone enjoy its natural beauty. Oh, and... More

Now that summer season is here, everybody appears to be planning to take a rest from the stressful life in the city and have a vacation. Diligent men and women must unwind, relax and breathe some fresh air. Taking a getaway isn't just about spending a lot of time inside your condo and watch movies all day. Go out and... More

Today my partner and friend of 30 years visited Wimbledon Common with our two puppies. The walk (although a little drizzly) was beautifully refreshing. Following our walk my partner suggested we have traditional tea and scones at the Windmill cafe - he had fond memories of going as a child. We greeted by a roadhouse style interior (complete with spray... More

Had a lovely walk from Cannizaro House in the south up to the War Memorial near the North-West corner and then back alongside the river down the west side before returning across the site of Caesar's Camp Fort. Have to admit to popping into the Asda Cafe near the War Memorial. Quiet at Sunday lunchtime. We saw several brimstone butterflies... More
