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.

I have walked on Wimbledon Common for many years, and never cease to be amazed when I find myself in a new and magnificent area of it! Go down to the lake by the Windmill café. It has been made into a nature reserve with nesting boxes placed on the lake for the birds. Sit on a bench and just... More

Wimbledon common is a great place to wander, peace in the urban setting . Lots of paths to follow including one to the old windmill . Watch out for the odd flying golf ball !

Really large area of woodland, a delight for walkers, with or without dogs, children, anyone who enjoys the countryside. Lovely to sit by the lake. Very tranquil. Passed several horses out with their riders, whilst there. Well worth a visit, forgot just how beautiful it is & just how close to the city this is. A welcome escape

You can park near the Wimbledon Windmill though restricted we had a lovely cup of tea with cake at the adjoining cafe but cooked meals were restricted we then went for a walk around the small lake which is past the Golf course it was extremely pleasant and tranquil and came home very refreshed

Takes a small effort to access and get deep into the woods, but the mix of woodland, heathland and water, makes this a real escape from london. Paths are rough, great for walking but not for buggies, toddler-kit etc. Top tip: Lovely cafe in the middle by the windmill (free parking makes this a great start/finish), just a short walk... More

A great open green space with some small ponds here and there. The local stables bring the horses out sometimes for training and it's a nice thing to see and you stroll through the fields.

I have never seen so many dogs with so much space to play in. There are joggers and horse riders and golfers, and paths in every direction. Be careful not get lost.
