I love Wimbledon Common. You can walk from for hours from Wimbledon Village to Putney Heath, to Roehampton and down to the A3 and in to Richmond Park.
There are more than five large ponds, that I know about and maybe more.
The Windmill is a fantastic structure and a good vista, although no longer free.
The only thing that lets the experience down is the Windmill Cafe and the very poor customer service experience. The inside (and outside) is clean and tidy.
The food is OK and prices are a bit on the high side, for a cafe, but not extra ordinary for a venue, with no alternative for miles.
The thing that let's it down is the inflexibility and the customer service. For example, today we had the full English breakfast and coffees at the cafe. I asked if I could change the beans for tomatoes or the sausage for something else? The answer was no. So I paid my money and we sat down. That was 10.30am. At 11.00am, we still did not have our coffees or full English breakfast. I presume this was because it was busy, although they had lots of staff. When I went up to find out when our order would be served? They told me that the food has been on the hotplate for ages and we should have come and got it and the coffees ages ago!
