Getting Around in Wimbledon
Aside from being one of the UK’s major sporting destinations, Wimbledon is an affluent suburb home to excellent schools, vast open spaces, and buzzing bistros. But its proximity to the metropolis and connectivity is perhaps one of the major reasons why many young families are choosing to put down roots in this sought-after neighbourhood.
Located southwest of the capital’s bustling centre in the London Borough of Merton — approximately 11.3 km from Charing Cross — Wimbledon is a leafy district that is spread over Zones 3 and 4. Whether travelling by Overground train, Tube, tram, car, bike or foot, getting around the district and beyond is effortless.
