History and services
The current Wimbledon Station was built in the late 1920’s with a Portland Stone entrance. Serving as a useful transport hub for southwest London, the station is the only one in the city to offer an interchange between rail, Underground and Tramlink services. In terms of Underground, the station is on the District line with direct access to South Kensington, Westminster, Tower Hill and Whitechapel. The rail services head to central London as well as the south and southwest areas of the UK. The station also serves Tramlink route 3, making it one of the most well-connected stations in London.
Wimbledon Tennis Club and Museum is within easy walking distance of the station or a short bus-ride away. The area gets very popular in the summer with the Wimbledon Championships, but Wimbledon has plenty of other things to do if you’re not interested in tennis. Wimbledon Common is one of the city’s best kept secrets – a charming open space and home to Elisabeth Beresford's The Wombles. The common boasts 1,140 acres of woodland, including its own windmill which has a museum tracing the history of the technology.
