Not to be missed in London SW19…
Wimbledon Centre Court is the main court at the Wimbledon Championship and will also be used for the tennis during the London 2012 Olympics. The Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum is located nearby and includes an extensive collection of tennis memorabilia dating back to 1555.
Wimbledon Park Golf Club is another lure of the area. The course includes some testing holes but welcomes people of all abilities. Lessons are also available.
Head to TavernaItaliana Restaurant in Wimbledon Village for an authentic home cooked Italian meal. This is a favourite among the locals of Wimbledon, and it’s easy to see why; first class service teamed with a great ambience. The seabass is highly recommended.
The Fox and Grapes, on Wimbledon Common, is run by 2 Michelin star chef Claude Bosi. The food here is simply divine; favourites include the pork belly with black pudding and cider sauce. The wine list is equally impressive, mostly organic and sourced from small growers. You won’t be disappointed.
