A Nice Stroll; Some Fresh Air.

I love the Wimbledon Common. You can have a lovely stroll and take in some fresh air. There is also a park for kids to play in!

This is the perfect place to take your family for a day out and for cycling as there are designated cycling routes. My favourite place in London especially in the summer time.

Go there to find out what an unspoilt London would have looked like! Acres of woodland and scrub - walkers and horses welcome. You feel you are no where near the centre of london. Smattering of lovely pubs near by mean you can get a pint too!

It's not quite in the city, but it's close enough! A great place to be in the great outdoors. It feels like you are in the countryside, but you are only a few miles from London. Lots of places to explore. I commonly get lost which is actually quite nice. A top place to walk with the dog or the... More

An awesome place to visit with the family. Beautiful wood to walk through with lots of space for the kids to run around and explore.

Free car parking makes a novel change these days. You might have to drive around the car park for 10 minutes as a result to find a space but well worth it. The car park might be packed but the common and woods are anything but. Kids had great fun exploring, climbing trees and building dens. A great place.

And better still, the parking is free! Such a change in this day and age. The cafe was full of dog walkers on a Monday lunchtime, and we grabbed some good cuppas before going for a walk in the beautiful surroundings. The cafe food is a bit transport-cafe like, so we gave it a miss and headed into the village... More

Free parking outside the cafe has seating outside. don't be put off by the municipal appearance of the place . Go inside and see the delicious cakes. The menu is decent with a variety of foods you'd expect to find in a cafe. Omlette & salad is £7.95. I had the most delicious soup and a freshly baked baguette for... More

This place could so easily be excellent. It has a wonderful location and a reasonable menu, but the small things let them down. You don't expect to be served tea in paper cups in a place called "Tea Rooms". You don't expect dirty tables and ill-trained and off-hand staff. They are not actively unpleasant, but they are not as welcoming... More

Peggy loves Wimbledon Common, it's perfect in every way. Not to many people sitting on the grass to be harassed by a puppy's love and lots of things to jump over & run under.
