Wimbledon area guide

Wimbledon is a flourishing town with a rich tradition dating back to the Iron Ages. It is home to the world-famous tennis Championships and the Capital's largest Common. Located just seven miles from central London via the District line on the London Underground, residents benefit from excellent connectivity to the heart of London and beyond.

Wimbledon feels like the centre of the universe for two weeks every Summer with the annual influx of tennis enthusiats as the world's oldest tennis championships dominate the headlines.

Occupying the famous SW19 postcode, Wimbledon is well-located with Battersea to the North, Earlsfield to the West and Sutton to the South. The beautiful neighbourhood offers residents the benefits of suburban living while being extremely well-connected to the city centre.

Surrounded by tranquil greenery, boutique shopping, traditional pubs, and an array of cafes and restaurants — Wimbledon is a great place to live.

Residents benefit from three museums, two multi-screen cinemas and London's eighth largest theatre — all within easy walking distance. When it comes to shopping amenities, SW19 has it all — from High-Street outlets at Centre Court Shopping to Ely's department store and the upscale boutiques of Wimbledon Village.

Educational opportunities are also aplenty as the town hosts the famous Wimbledon College of Art, Kings College and the Norwegian School in London.

One of Wimbledon’s best assets is its excellent transport links. Residents are spoilt for choice as the District Line runs in the town centre and the Northern Line in South Wimbledon. Regular Overground trains run into Waterloo every few minutes, with convenient stops for the Victoria Line at Clapham Junction and Vauxhall.
