Welcome to the Omaze Million Pound House Draw. This week we’re showing you the beautiful area surrounding the Wimbledon House. This leafy part of London is where you’ll find some of the UK’s best schools, markets, shops, pubs and of course, tennis courts. There’s so much going on, so we’ve put together a guide to Wimbledon’s top 5 attractions. Enjoy!
1. The Championships, Wimbledon
It’s the tournament where tennis legends are made. And if you win the Wimbledon House Draw, it will be happening right on your doorstep. Every year, the Championships attract some of the world’s biggest A-list celebrities, global leaders, and members of the Royal Family. Ready to rub shoulders with them over strawberries and cream?
2. The All-England Lawn Tennis Club
When the Championships are over, you can take a tour of the hallowed grounds of this iconic venue. You’ll be escorted around the player locker rooms, the viewing areas and, of course, you’ll get to stand in centre court. It’s the perfect place to celebrate winning the Wimbledon House: game, set and match!
3. Wimbledon and Putney Commons
Visit the vast Commons of Wimbledon and Putney where wild, wooded paths will lead you far from the bustling city streets. The Commons are beautiful places to visit for walkers, cyclists, families, horse riders and golfers. It’s a perfect escape from the buzz of London and a wonderful place to just breathe and wander.
4. Wimbledon Village
Visitors fill the streets of Wimbledon village each weekend, enjoying its many local events and celebrations, restaurants, bars, and boutique shops. And if you're looking for fresh local produce, be sure to check out the Wimbledon Farmers Market, held each Saturday all- year-round.
5. The Museum of Wimbledon
The museum was established in 1916 and displays several watercolour paintings by local artists, historic prints and maps, a sizable library, and numerous photos. Also on display are a selection of archaeological and natural history artifacts dating back some 3,000 years.
You could make this incredible area your new neighbourhood when you enter the Omaze Million Pound House Draw, Wimbledon. There are also weekly cash prizes to be won, along with some incredible early bird prizes. The sooner you enter, the more chances you have to win. And the best part? You’ll be helping to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity so that they can give seriously ill children the best chance at life. So, what are you waiting for?
