    Wimbledon offers a vast selection of properties, from Victorian and Edwardian houses to contemporary and luxury apartments.

    Some homes date back to the second half of the nineteenth century, when a number of properties were built to meet the area’s expanding population. A number of terraced houses and villas were constructed along roads leading to nearby Putney, among other surrounding areas.

  • There are a number of places to go out in Wimbledon, including many smart eateries and places to enjoy a social drink, including a few major nightclubs.

    Wimbledon has two cinemas and four theatres, including the recently reopened New Wimbledon Theatre on the Broadway, which is highly popular with theatre lovers and attracts many West End productions. Meanwhile, Wimbledon Common is a popular place to take a pleasant stroll.

    But the annual Wimbledon Tennis Championship is the main attraction. The local streets are packed full of tennis fans and tourists from around the world during the two week event in the summer time.

    Ownership of the manor of Wimbledon, which was originally called Wynnman's Hill, has changed hands on numerous occasions. The area has long attracted well-heeled families, wealthy merchants from the city, and nobility, due to the area’s convenient proximity to Central London. The district’s population started to expand quite rapidly during the second half of the nineteenth century, and has grown larger ever since.

    Although Wimbledon is globally renowned for its annual tennis championship, it was croquet that was initially the local sport of choice in the early 1870s. This soon changed once the All-England Croquet Club (today called the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, but also known as the All-England Club) held its first Lawn Tennis Championship in 1877. By 1922, the popularity of tennis meant that the annual tennis championship was moved to a larger venue close to Wimbledon Park.

    Wimbledon got its first train station – London and South Western Railway - and police station in 1838 and 1870, respectively.

    The annual rate of council tax in Wimbledon varies, and is dependant on a property's valuation band. The valuation band is determined by the value of the property and the current rates for the local council.
