Love this place for running round. So many different routes to try and very peaceful. On Saturday and Sunday there is limited parking so get there early. Public toilets, water fountain and a cafe for stopping off before or after your run!

Stayed here for a week and jogged almost everyday. Wildlife seem well kept, bushes are thick and makes you feel like you are in a nature sanctuary when you aren't really far from the towns and city.

Wimbledon Common consists of forests and grass lands. It stretches miles and miles in circumference and has so many different places to explore including two golf courses.

Just love this park ! We did around 8km and like many walks before we always find something new or interesting and after we popped to great Windmill Tearoom cafe for some soup or hot drinks. Highly recommend this place for everyone !
