About Wimbledon

Wimbledon is a district of south London, located in the London Borough of Merton. It is situated 7 miles (11.3 km) south-west of Charing Cross. For most of the past century, Wimbledon has been internationally known as the home of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships. As it was in the 16th and 17th centuries, Wimbledon's attraction remains its combination of convenient access to central London with the benefit of plentiful recreational facilities. Strong demand for homes, especially the larger properties in the Wimbledon Village and Wimbledon Park areas, has seen prices increase to amongst the highest in the outer London area.
