Couldn’t resist the opportunity to run on the common when staying in Wimbledon - much publicised common area, conveniently crisscrossed with paths and roads. Some paths clearly marked not for cycles. Variety of grass- some short mown, other areas allowed to grow long. Pleasing natural...More

Nice big place to make sure that you walk in nature and get lots of exercise. Many places to go and the duck pond was extremely child friendly. We visited on a bright sunny day. This made the visit quite special.

Love this place for running round. So many different routes to try and very peaceful. On Saturday and Sunday there is limited parking so get there early. Public toilets, water fountain and a cafe for stopping off before or after your run!

Love the common:-) golfers and dog walkers abound, lots of pretty heathland and woodland, and all in the heart of suburbia. If you have a dog to walk or just feel like some bucolic relaxation or a run the common is the place to be:-)...More

Stayed here for a week and jogged almost everyday. Wildlife seem well kept, bushes are thick and makes you feel like you are in a nature sanctuary when you aren't really far from the towns and city.

Wimbledon Common consists of forests and grass lands. It stretches miles and miles in circumference and has so many different places to explore including two golf courses.
