A beautiful sprawling natural gem awaits the adventurous London visitor in need of a nature hit- handy for those on the south side and less open than Richmond park so great for windier days- homely cafe at the windmill in the middle

The Wimbledon common is a very safe, clean forest with plenty of open space for the dogs to let off some steam. The lake is also a great way to introduce your dogs to swimming. Anytime of the year the common is beautiful, in winter it is covered in a blanket of snow, in spring all the flowers are shooting... More

We had been the All England Tennis and Croquet Club to take the tour of the tennis stadium. After completing the tour, it was time to walk to Southfields to catch the tube back to central London. Soon after we had left the tennis stadium, we came across Wimbledon Common. The common is so huge that it would be difficult... More

Numerous trails for walking, horse riding or biking. Plenty of walking only trails so you are not disturbed by fast riding bikers. Walk from the Wimbledon Village and get a coffee or tea at the Old Windmill, it takes about 30 minutes, or if more energetic continue on to the old Telegraph Pub. At the Windmill drop into the Rangers... More

Stunning place to visit, good walking and lots of area for the kids to run. I always get lost here. Only negative is that in areas where is states to keel dogs on leads people do not. I am a dog lover / owner but theses signs surely must be up for a reason?

The common is well located and well planned. The landscape is beautifully designed and well kept. In winter, when covered it snow it becomes the play ground to both young and old where you will find the most original snowman designs and traces of snow angels everywhere. Make sure where the appropriate clothing in both winter or summer when you... More

Where town meets country is the phrase used about the Common and Wimbledon Village. A surprisingly good walk, plenty of space to lose yourself in, perfect for families, couples, dog walkers. A windmill with a cafe is a good destination and a final walk back to the Village for dinner in either the pub, the Italian, the French or The... More

Love walking for hours in the beautiful area with such great spaces. Feeding ducks, walking dogs and even the odd bird watcher. Pity that bikes are so common in such tranquility

It's a vast open space stretching from Putney to Wimbledon to Roehampton and almost Kingston. My favourite bit starts near the windmill where there is a small museum with a Baden-Powell (of scouts fame) angle. The tea rooms are here too - as well as the loos and the car park. Walk a little behind the car park and there's... More
