Homes to Rent in South Wimbledon, London
Part of the neighbourhood best known for being the world capital of tennis, South Wimbledon was originally known as New Wimbledon and forms the (duh!) southern part of the town.

South Wimbledon is a great place to live, but slightly less less busy than its northern neighbour. This makes it more reasonably priced, safer and more community-driven than tourist-catering. Most of South Wimbledon sits in the SW19 postcode.
