Wimbledon will forever be associated with strawberries, cream, Pimms and tennis. But there are plenty of other reasons to book one of our Wimbledon hotels. This corner of South West London is well connected without being in the thick of the city, has plenty of places to eat, drink and shop, plus it’s close to some lovely green spaces.
Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum
Charting the history of lawn tennis from a garden pastime to multimillion-pound professional sport, Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum showcases modern and historic memorabilia, video footage, 3D films, interactive consoles and a hologram of John McEnroe.
You might not see any Wombles but you will enjoy a lovely stroll about the open space. It has woodland, a windmill and a golf course.
Who’d have thought there were deer this close to London? As the largest of the Royal Parks, there’s plenty of ground and wildlife to explore. Make sure you stop off in one of the well-thought-of cafes.
Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew
Otherwise known as Kew Gardens, here you can see a vast range of rare and beautiful plants and flowers in their glorious seasonal colours. There’s also a treetop walk, Victorian glasshouses, the Arboretum, royal buildings, woods and more.
