Firstly, one can park for free, now that is amazing in itself! Yes it is busy and the car park can appear to be full but there is movement of cars going out of the park all the time. The Common is beautiful, there are hills, a golf course, many trees, a large lake with Lilly pads and many birds... More

Brilliant cycle tracks throughout the common. Perfect Sunday cycle:) the tracks are well marked and no where near as busy as Richmond park!

After over 2 hours of walking around and leaving litter on the ground (as a sort of trap) we did not see one Womble. This was a huge let down, maybe they were underground but we were hoping to see some over ground. I think its probably climate change or disease that has been brought to the country from all...

Wimbledon common is wild and rambling, its got everything, wide expanses of grass, woodland, ponds and lots of space. Plenty of old branches to make amazing camps with the children and a great place to take the dog walking. There are horses too, the Windmill which also has a museum and a great little Tea Room The tea room is... More

We went to walk the dog on Wimbledon Common this weekend. The sun was out and as were a lot of runners, kids on bikes and other dog walkers, yet it didn't seem crowded! There were plenty of 'other paths' to choose to divert down. I can see we'll be back here. Fantastic for dog walking, good for kids and... More

First things first. The tea rooms are a nice, tasty variety of food. Made to order rolls, home made style cakes, drinks, ice cream etc. Only problem is, they do not take card payment of any type, just cash, so if you plan on using the tea rooms, TAKE CASH. The common is a great place to explore, kids will... More

Loads of woods and open land to walk around, and visit the working windmill (and mill your own flour !).

The staff at The Windmill Tearooms went out of their way to reunite us (incl. our two small children) with our pushchair when we lost it. We have been many times, the food is delicious and the location lovely tucked in beautiful Wimbledon Common

I had never been to Wimbledon before and have to say it was just as I expected. The common was a lovely open space which had a natural feel to it. Great for walking the dog, children or just being with your spouse.
