As the name suggests, Wimbledon Village offers the kind of pursuits normally associated with the countryside: there’s horse riding, golf and of course tennis on the Common as well as village fairs throughout the year. Shops are of the upmarket variety (Bang & Olufsen, Matches, and a host of independent boutiques), which is unsurprising given the area’s property prices. It’s also great for foodies, with chic restaurants vying for attention amongst the ubiquitous Café Rouge and Carluccio’s. Ideal for a day out if you want leafy, pretty surroundings and designer retail therapy. Wimbledon Village is accessible via the District Line or the overground.
