Having only 'discovered' this attraction six days ago whilst seeking a family meeting point, this museum was a very pleasant surprise. It's cheap. It's very well presented ... and fascinating. I never knew how ignorant I was of windmills and their history. We were accompanied by two of our grandchildren (aged 6 and 4, boy and girl) and they were entralled. The 6-year old boy enjoyed the quite advanced video production and both enjoyed grinding wheat to make a little flour. Add in the (now dated!) enticement to the children to find a Womble (requires an induction course!) and the free car parking, and you have a potentially great day out, plus respite from the grind of the South Circular.

An easy reach from London, Southside House makes a really interesting visit. It is a walkable distance from the station to Southside Common, close to the Wimbledon War Memorial. The house itself is a mixture of styles, filled with family history, which our guide truly brought to life in a wonderfully detailed way. The gardens are lovely, with hedges separating different areas, each with it's own individual colour and design very peaceful. The tour took about two hours overall, and had plenty to offer from start to finish. The pub across the road - the Crooked Billet is also to be recommended. Set in a quaint old building, the lunch was delicious, and we went back for dessert and coffee.

We took the ride to Wimbledon Station to visit the Lawn Tennis Club at Church Road. This red-brick library building, along Wimbledon Hill Road, is just right in front of the station. This is a functioning public library for the district. Opens everyday from 9.30 am to 7 pm, except till 5 pm for Saturday and closed on Sunday; we were lucky to have a quick look around as we did not check the opening hours beforehand. Wimbledon Hill Road is just that stretch before Church Road. The book collections were adequate for the area and the library has resorted to online and DVD access for borrowers because of space constraints. Nice to note that Wimbledon is not just about tennis!
