Wimbledon

The manicured grass courts of Wimbledon's famed tournament reflect the consideration that goes into this west London neighborhood's every elegant detail.

Although Wimbledon lends its name to tennis’ most prestigious tournament, the neighborhood is more than manicured grass courts and impeccable forehands. Wimbledon’s residential tendencies keep it grounded despite its summertime attraction—gable-roofed homes snuggle up to casual pubs, theatres, and commons. When champions aren’t claiming titles, this west London destination displays a quiet side more suited to village-life than big-city racket.
