Just Moved to Wimbledon? Here's one useful town guide!

It's not just about the tennis! Wimbledon is a great place to live year round, everything you need to live a comfortable city lifestyle is all within easy reach.

Wimbledon town guide

Accommodation in Wimbledon

Wimbledon village is exclusive and expensive, the central part of the district is much more affordable while the most inexpensive region is South Wimbledon. It's no surprise that the least expensive area is also an area that some people regard as having a slightly rougher feel, but everything is comparative and the borough of Merton, of which Wimbledon is a part is one of the safest places in London to live.

Transport

Wimbledon trains and buses

From Wimbledon Station there are regular services to Clapham Junction and Waterloo. You can also catch a tram to Croydon, a popular shopping option. A tube journey from South Wimbledon to the West End will take you about 30 minutes and there are 2 different night bus services to bring you back from central London whatever time you return from your night on the town.

Multi-Cultural and Varied

Wimbledon village is home to millionaires but the district as a whole boasts a wide ethnic mix. Wimbledon is sometimes named 'WimbleDurban' in tribute to the number of South African residents,you'll find representatives of all continents within a few square miles with North African and Polish immigrants making up a significant part of the local working population. Whoever you are and wherever you come from there'll be an area of Wimbledon that suits you and you can expect a friendly welcome from the current residents.

Shopping and Dining

Wimbledon centre court

You'll find good local supermarkets for all the basics, while Centre Court Shopping Centre offers easy access to all the high street top names. The shopping centre is just 2 minutes walk from tube, train or tram interchange and of course there's plenty of parking too. There's a wide choice of restaurants in Wimbledon, catering to all budgets and tastes. If pub dining is your thing you should certainly pay a visit to the 'The Rose and Crown', located in Wimbledon Village and dating back to the Sixteenth Century.

Entertainment

Just decide what you want to do, the opportunity is almost certainly there! There are 2 theatres in Wimbledon, a 12 screen cinema and if you fancy a day at the Greyhound races that's on offer too. For nature loving souls, a walk on Wimbledon common or any of the other green parks in the district offers the opportunity to get away from it all while staying within easy reach of all facilities.

Sports

Wimbledon tennis club

To become a full member of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (that's Wimbledon to most of us!) will cost you £463, but you'll also need letters of support from four existing full members, before you can even be placed on the candidates list. There are lots of other options for sport-lovers however. The Wimbledon Racquets and Fitness Club offers flexible memberships which includes booking rights for the badminton and squash courts as well as use of a gym and sauna.

It's perfectly possible to stay fit in Wimbledon without paying any fee at all, just register for the Wimbledon Common parkrun. This takes place every Saturday, starting at 9am,  it's free and you'll even be given your time for your 5km run. The organisers also welcome volunteers to help with the event, a great way to get to know some of your new neighbours.

Local Services

There's a children's centre in South Wimbledon that provides pregnant moms and parents with children with a range of great services. It's also a place where you and your child can make lot's of friends and get health advices, help with family matters and much more.

If you need taxi or private hire vehicle services here's a list of the most reliable companies.

Wimbledon's Police Station is available for citizens who want to report a crime or an incident. In emergency you should always dial 999 or use 101 for non-emergency matters.

If you are looking for the nearest local Doctor, you should check this page and click on a name for more information.

Do you need cleaning or home maintenance services? It is essential that you regularly take preventive measures for your home in order to avoid further expensive repairs. Such can be caused by clogged or leaking gutters for instance. For this purpose you can take advantage of the Wimbledon's most recommended home services provider - Fantastic Services. Except for gutter cleaning you can book them for whatever services you may need for your home.

And last but not least, for driving and medical issues, driver check service, vehicle registration and tax enquiries you can contact the local DVLA.

After all Wimbledon is one of the best areas in London and the chances you'll love it are pretty high.
