From vast amounts of open space to the birthplace of the worldwide prestigious event that is the Wimbledon Tennis Championships, Wimbledon is bursting with as much history as it is culture. With its pockets of quiet, leafy residential areas next to streets buzzing with an eclectic mix of places to eat and drink, it somehow manages to achieve a country and city feel. You can while away the hours here perusing the boutique shops and cafes, or why not take a stroll around Wimbledon Common-1200 acres of open green space with a lake, tearoom and windmill! And it's safe to say that a visit to Wimbledon wouldn't be complete without a trip to the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum. Get up close to the trophies and test your skills on the Batak wall!
