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.

Lovely place for a sunny days walk. Lots of families and dogs were around but this didn't bother us. Plenty of routes to take.

Went with some friends for lunch after walking on the common. Lovely day so sat outside. Service very slow, food expensive and second rate. Some old men at a table next to ours had big, smelly, drooling dogs off the lead which bothered all the tables for food. There were several young mums with babies and toddlers and one dog... More
