But Wimbledon is even more than that; outstanding shopping, wonderful local schools, charming pubs, great theaters and good transport links cause families and young professionals to come and live in this precious village vibe.

What to visit in Merton?

  • The All England Lawn Tennis Club, the place that hosts the best tennis tournament becomes a museum the rest of the year.
  • Learn to ride at Wimbledon Village Stables, the oldest recorded stable in England.
  • If you are a retail lover, can’t miss these three shopping areas: Wimbledon Village, Wimbledon High Street and the Centre Court Shopping Centre.
