Richmond Park, Kingston
Richmond Park is amazingly beautiful and a great place to walk yourself and your dog. It feels like you're in the countryside, as you see green for miles even though you are in Kingston. Plus the park is full of deer and you can get close to them. Great place for cycling too.

Wimbledon Windmill Museum
A great place to visit with the family to learn all about windmilling. The children can also have a go at making flour using the grindstone there!

Within just a few minutes' walk of Richmond Park, The Albert is the perfect pub to hole up in after an Autumn walk in the park.

Pembroke Lodge, Richmond Park
From Sunday lunch after a leisurely stroll through the park, to sharing a glass of wine whilst taking in views of Windsor Castle, this is a great place to relax and unwind.

This traditional pub in Wimbledon Village serves a great Sunday roast. There's a lovely beer garden too, which is great for drinks in the summer.

The village is alive with such a variety of restaurants, pubs and bars. And there's lots happening when the tennis is on too. It's also close to Wimbledon Common, with a lake where you can feed the birds.

Cocktails, mocktails and more! This sophisticated bar serves food too.

It's like being in a walk-in safari park - a real green retreat within the M25.
