Living in Wimbledon

Located in the south west of Greater London, Wimbledon’s residential area is split into two sections, known as the “village” and the “town”. The High Street forms part of the original medieval village, set amongst handsome period buildings and providing a good selection of bistros, restaurants and pubs, catering for all tastes and budgets. Wimbledon's attraction remains its combination of convenient access to central London with the benefit of plentiful recreational facilities, including golf at The Royal Wimbledon Golf Club and horse riding at the Wimbledon Village Stables, the oldest recorded riding stables in England.

Full of both independent owned stores and famous high street names, shopping is a delight in Wimbledon. The area has much to offer including health clubs, nightclubs, cinemas and theatres. The New Wimbledon Theatre on the Broadway is popular throughout London and brings in a large number of West End productions. Of course Wimbledon SW19 is home to the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club and famously known as the place that hosts the annual Wimbledon tennis tournament.

Wimbledon Common is one of the largest areas of common land in London and a great place to take a picnic. This leafy area of London has a relaxed atmosphere, excellent amenities, good transport links into the city and a great selection of top-end private and state schools, resulting in a very popular area for families.

History

Wimbledon is thought to have been inhabited since at least the Iron Age when a hill fort was constructed on Wimbledon Common. The original centre was close to the common at the top of the hill, known locally as “the village” and was part of the manor of Mortlake at the time when the Domesday book was compiled in 1807. The manor was held by the church until 1398 when Thomas Arundel, Archbishop of Canterbury, fell out of favour with Richard II and was exiled. The manor was confiscated and became crown property.

Wimbledon came to prominence in the sixteenth century when Sir Thomas Cecil, first Earl of Exeter, settled here after being granted land by Elizabeth I. Known as the 'Maker of Wimbledon,' Cecil improved the road to London and built Wimbledon Manor House, where the monarchy later stayed as guests.

The Village developed from this time and prominent merchants, such as Robert Bell of the East India Company, established a trend by moving here and commuting on horseback to the City. Important families such as the Churchills and the Spencers quickly followed suit, and Wimbledon became established as a fashionable location for the well-to-do and the influential.
