When most people hear the name ‘Wimbledon’, the immediately think of the famous tennis championships that are so eagerly anticipated by sports fans and players throughout the year. There’s good reason that so many people become tennis fans during the summer event, which happens to be the world’s longest-running tennis tournament. Wimbledon is unique because it is the only one of the four major world tournaments each year that is played on a grass court, so anything can happen, adding to the excitement. Many people who aren’t necessarily followers of tennis year-round tune into the Wimbledon tournament to take part in the many traditions, such as dress codes and royal attendance, that you simply can’t see anywhere else.
But if you think of the tennis tournament and nothing else when you see the word Wimbledon, there’s a lot you are missing out on. If your new Wimbledon home is located in the village, you are moving to an area steeped in history, dating back to medieval times, in fact. Today, the district is part of the borough of Merton, but was once so far out of London as to be considered rural. Times have changed, however, since coaches carried travelers away from the city along stagecoach runs and even railways have given way to larger motorways and personal vehicles, of course. But Wimbledon has been here all along.
To get a sense of the history of the place, consider that a hill fort is considered to have been built during the Iron Age on what is now Wimbledon Common. The common itself is famous for being among the largest communally owned tract in London. For much of its history, the area of Wimbledon was the property of the monarchy, but today it is a bustling place with little of its country origins to be seen. Its location southwest of London is a full seven miles away from Charing Cross, so it is easy to see why it was considered a distant outpost when transportation was primitive.
Aside from the tennis championships, Wimbledon also has a storied football history, one that has caused some controversy over the years. Football fans will know the ins and outs, but suffice it to say that Wimbledon football is unique. For more cultured entertainment, visit the New Wimbledon Theatre, which is housed in a beautiful Edwardian building. There are plenty of parks and green spaces, too for enjoying the English summers.
