A part of South West London, located south of Wandsworth and east of Kingston upon Thames, Wimbledon is split into two areas; the village and the town. It has a population of around 57,000 adults and has the postal codes of SW19 and SW20. The history of the area goes all the way back to the Iron Age but very little is know about what it was like at this time. When the Domesday Book was written the area was a part of the manor of Mortlake but would go on to be owned by different people and organisations as time progressed. In the 17th century many wealthy families began to move here and the village started to grow. It remained mostly rural until the construction of the railway which allowed for rapid expansion and lots of houses were built to keep up demand. Ely’s department store opened and Wimbledon Library was established and Christ Church and Trinity Church were formed and soon the area was the modern metropolis it is today.
The famous tennis championships that are held here are just small parts of what makes Wimbledon special. Many other sports such as football, horse riding/racing, stock car and grey hound racing and running are all actively participated in and followed. The New Wimbledon Theatre was opened in 1910 and was very popular during the first half of the 20th century. The theatre has since been redeveloped and is still hosting a variety of shows today. There are various museums and open spaces, most notably Wimbledon Common, which is home to cycling, jogging, horse riding and is a popular tourist spot.
The likes of William Wilberforce, Oliver Reed, Alan Pardew, Raymond Briggs, Thomas Brown and even Lord Horatio Nelson have lived here and with Man and Van’s help you can too.
