The local area guide to living in Wimbledon: The Local Area Guide

Most commonly known as the home of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships – or the home of the Wombles, depending on your interests – Wimbledon is a charming, green area of south-west London. It is often associated with typical English imagery, and draws in a high number of families and affluent young professionals. Technically able to be called a village, Wimbledon gives a unique feel of country town living while still being well positioned in the capital.

However, beyond Wimbledon Common – one of the largest commons in London - and the tennis courts, you’ll find a rich history that dates back to the Iron Age, when the famous Hill Fort was constructed. There’s also a number of cultural and entertainment draws, ranging from the boutiques and cafes of Wimbledon Village to the beautiful Grade II-listed New Wimbledon Theatre and Cannizaro House – a 4* boutique hotel based in a renovated 18th Century building.

Information about the local residents

As one of the capital city’s most expensive suburbs, Wimbledon attracts an affluent population, with almost 75% of residents describing themselves as middle or upper class. Its highly rated schools and abundance of greenery also make it popular among families with young children. The number of married couples with children outweighs any other demographic in the area, and most of these residents own their own home.

The population is just over 57,000, a figure that hasn’t changed much in the last 100 years. It’s one of the areas that was identified in the ‘London Plan’, a scheme to build up 35 major centres within London.

Nearby schools

Wimbledon has a number of state and private schools at both primary and secondary level – and it has many schools that consistently achieve well above average. The famous independent schools – Kings College for boys and Wimbledon High for girls – both had an impressive 100% of pupils achieve five or more good GCSEs in 2012.

Other popular options include Ursaline High, which is the area’s largest state school for girls, and its counterpart, Wimbledon College for boys. Both of these have enjoyed above average results for their students and are well rated by Ofsted.

Getting around

Wimbledon has a number of convenient transport links in the town centre, with Wimbledon Station operating both overground trains (with regular services to Richmond, Kingston and London Waterloo amongst others) and underground services via the District Line.

Southfields and Wimbledon Park are alternative options that both connect to the District Line, and there are regular bus routes that run throughout the town, into central London, and to the nearby suburbs. Unusually for London, around 25% of residents choose to drive to and from work. This can cause high levels of congestion on the roads, particularly during peak hours. Wimbledon itself does not fall within the London congestion zone.

Local shops

There’s no shortage of things to do in Wimbledon, from museums to shops to outdoor spaces. Wimbledon Common is one of the largest areas of its kind in London, and makes a beautiful backdrop to a summer stroll. It’s not far from Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum, which chronicles the area’s most famous sport, and the Museum of Wimbledon, which charts 3000 years of history.

Nearby you’ll find Wimbledon Village – a particularly affluent area that’s packed with coffee shops, designer boutiques and independent shops, restaurants, and cafes, all nestled among some stunning architecture. It’s just a short walk away from the high street as well, which is home to Centre Court Shopping Centre. Another draw in the town centre is the New Wimbledon Theatre, which has previously hosted ballet, touring west end shows, pantomimes and more.
