Wimbledom Common is a welcoming green space promising tranquility at the end of the District Line. There are three main parts to it: Wimbledon Common, Putney Heath and Putney Lower Common. Beyond that there are several visually distinct areas: the heath bits, which are nice and flat, with trees neatly arranged so as not to spoil ball games or get in the way of festival tents or fairground rides, or people trying to soak up the sun; a forested bit, which is popular with ramblers, and trail riders of the two wheeled and four legged variety; and the heather bit, which is near the centre of the common and is popular with picnic-ers and dogs and people on Sunday strolls.

There's also a windmill at the centre - so don't stop walking until you discover it or you'll be disappointed!
