5 Great things to do in Wimbledon

Wimbledon is a leafy suburb of south London and easily accessible from the West End by either public transport or private hire taxi cab.

 

To get around Wimbledon and enjoy all these great five things then Elite Car Services are the number one taxi cab company in Wimbledon.

 

Apart from the world famous All England Tennis Club, Wimbledon has many fine restaurants, pubs, shops and other fine attractions to tempt visitors.

 

The following is a selection of things to do in Wimbledon that can be both interesting and informative.

 

Wimbledon Common & Wimbledon Windmill

Have a stroll on the common and try to spot the Wombles along the way. Wimbledon also has its own windmill which is a brilliantly unexpected sight when you’re enjoying a long walk on the common’s 460 hectares..

There is a museum about the windmill that’s worth a visit but if you want to keep walking, running or ambling to extend your dose of fresh air, few people know that you can actually get to Richmond Park from Wimbledon Common by just crossing the A3 road. From there you’re in London’s biggest park and home to over 600 deer.

 

Wat Buddhapadipa

Wimbledon is home to the UK’s first Buddhist Temple and is a much treasured place by London’s Buddhist community. It is a working Thai temple which is home to a community of nuns and monks. The temple opened in 1982 and is set on four acres of ground which includes peaceful gardens and a park.

 

Boating in Wimbledon Park

Another vast open space in the heart of Wimbledon. Wimbledon Park has volleyball courts, children’s play areas and also a lake that you can go sailing on if the weather is kind enough. You can choose from kayaks, canoes and even windsurfing. And if you fancy a game of tennis then there are courts for hire also.

 

Shop in the Village

As soon as you exit Wimbledon Station you will encounter the Centre Court Shopping Centre for all your shopping needs. However, if you prefer your retail therapy to be slightly more relaxing and interesting then you should head down to Wimbledon Village. It is home to independent boutiques and upmarket designer stores. Don’t miss Wimbledon Broadway as Ely’s is one of the oldest department stores in London, established in 1876.

 

Visit an Historic Country House

Built in 1700’s Cannizaro House in a corner of Wimbledon Common has a rich and colourful history being home to centuries of noble families including King George v’s mistress the wife of the Duke of Wellington.

The house is now a hotel and the grounds are open to the public to view. The rhododendron and azalea gardens are of specific interest. Now owned by the National Trust this beautiful Georgian country estate is home to two old snuff mills, a beautiful rose garden and 125 acres of parkland. There is even an open air theatre that is open during the summer months.

If you fancy visiting Cannizaro House or any other of Wimbledon’s fine attraction then Elite Car Services can provide you with door to door transport from your hotel in complete comfort.
