Wimbledon Village Stables

Wimbledon Village Stables offers exceptional horse riding in London, giving riders of all abilities the opportunity to escape the city and embark on an equestrian adventure.  The stables offer riders a very special experience and some of the finest horse riding in London, thanks to the stunning countryside and wildlife of Wimbledon Common and Richmond Park.

Royal Wimbledon Golf Course

Royal Wimbledon Golf Club is the third oldest golf Club in England dating back to 1865 and is a hidden gem in the middle of the Common. It has a rich history embracing both the evolution of the Club and the game of golf.  It continues to evolve to keep pace with the game and today provides a tough test over tight fairways with gorse and heather thrown in for good measure.

The Windmill

The Windmill has been a distinctive landmark since it was built in 1817 to serve the local community. However it only operated until 1864, when the machinery was removed and it was converted to residential accommodation. Today the sails have been restored to working order and the building houses a fascinating museum of windmills, with exhibits on rural life and local history. Next door to the Windmill Museum are the Windmill Tearooms offering  a range of appetising homemade food, hot and cold drinks, and ice-cream. The large patio area outside makes it a popular choice with families and dog-walkers.


Wimbledon BookFest is a not for profit charity promoting arts, culture and education with the aim of developing the cultural offerings to the local community. Held on the Common twice a year Wimbledon BookFest fans can look forward to a programme of events featuring a range of writers, artists and thinkers – from well-known names to important new voices and local talent, combined with educational projects for local schools and young people.
