Top 3 Wimbledon Attractions

Living in Wimbledon is ace (pardon the cheeky little pun); you can find every type of accommodation imaginable in this South West London area, from mansions and penthouses to flats and house sharing. South Wimbledon is home to offices and shops in and around the area. SW19 estate agents based in the heart of Wimbledon specialises in residential and commercial properties for sale and to rent.

There’s more to see in Wimbledon than centre court, so here’s our guide to the top 3 Wimbledon attractions…

Well this is pretty self explanatory, it’s a museum of windmills based in Wimbledon Common. This museum tells the ancient history of windmills and includes working models and milling. People from all ages are welcome to take a tour around the museum, don’t forget to stop by the gift shop to pick up some souvenirs for your friends and family. A small fee is made for admission, group bookings are accepted and school visits are welcome.

Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum & Tour

If you’re a fan of the tennis then you will love this – Wimbledon Lawn Tennis tour is a state-of-the-art experience which will give you an enjoyable day out to grasp a fantastic insight into the home of tennis. An educational tour for students is also available. We think this is the best way to see the most famous tennis location without having to buy a ticket for the tournament.

You get an unbelievable chance to experience the home of The Championships, the stunning trophies and see the facilities used during the London 2012 Olympics, how amazing is that? You’d be crazy to miss out on this opportunity!

Southside House

Discretely hidden behind high walls is a unique and fascinating historic family home open for public guided tours, with regular concerts and other local events located in the centre of Wimbledon Common. Southside House welcomes schools and other group visits to wander around this beautiful ancient building.

Why not consider Southside House for a special celebration? You can hire the house for a private party, meetings and seminars or something more romantic like a candlelit tour with a loved one, concluding with gourmet sandwiches and fine wine.

Get your cameras at the ready because visitors taking the house tour are welcome to stroll and explore the garden full of wilderness, woodland, secret pathways and wildlife.

So if you have some spare time over the weekends, get yourself to Wimbledon and visit some of these great places.
