look for Wombles in Wimbledon Common

12 Feb

Well, you probably won’t find one but you will find dogs, welly-wearing couples pushing buggies, and a jogger or two, even in the snow. But it’s with good reason that gooey-eyed new parents and Fenton-like pooches are the Common’s main inhabitants. Just a few minutes from the high street, you feel as if you’ve stepped in the country as Wimbledon Common stretches to Putney Heath and then to Richmond Park. The North may have its bars and restaurants, the East its cool markets and clubs but the South West has its green spaces and it’s great.
