Facts on West Wimbledon SW20 Area

Some of the districts that fall under the West Wimbledon SW20 area include Raynes Park, Lower Morden, Merton Park and Wimbledon chase. This area is under Merton's Local Authority. There are numerous busy streets with various amenities and shops; there are also natural parks like Cannon Hill, Common and Cottenham Park. Things are a bit less noisy than in Wimbledon Town and village, however its close proximity to the various shops and restaurants increases its allure.


There are various properties in the area from apartments to flats to semi detached homes and many others. Both working class youth and people with families live here. Transportation to and from central London is really reliable and this is among the many reasons why a significant number of people live here.

Present are trains heading to Clapham Junction and Waterloo in addition to excellent tube links. There are also Trams linking East Croydon. For most of the people living in this tranquil leafy area, commuting to and from work every day using public means is really not hectic.

Greater London is split into two by River Thames. Lambeth, Bankside, maritime Greenwich and Southwark are located in the south. A small section of the London underground network can be found here; compared to North London, a much bigger portion of the suburban railway system is located here. All London's tram services also have a presence here.

The Bexley, Bromley, Kingston, Lambeth, Croydon, Greenwich, Lewisham, Wandswortth, Sutton, Richmond, and Southwark boroughs make up this area. The Boundary Commission for England uses this definition. London's Richmond borough on River Thames covers both sides of the river and for administrative purposes; the boundary commission recognizes it as falling under South London and so does Kingston. Wandsworth, Southwark, Lewisham, Greenwich and Lambeth were classified as boroughs of inner London whereas Sutton, Merton, Kingston, Bromley, Bexley, Croydon were set under the boroughs of Outer London (1965).

The Koppen climate classification classifies South London's climate as temperate maritime - similar to most of UK. In relation to climate data collection, three meteorological offices cover the south of River Thames and also the southern end of the urban region that is: Kenley Airfield, Hampton and Kew. Climatic recordings of Greenwich going all the way back to 1763 are available; however there have been no observations since 2003.

The closer one gets to River Thames the higher the temperatures; this is caused by the surrounding area's urban warming effect. Another reason is that the altitude decreases as one nears Thames. What this means is that South London's southern edges experience lower temperatures than areas that are close to River Thames. At times snow is still visible in North Downs even when central London has none.

A temperature of 38.1 degrees Celsius (100.6 Fahrenheit) was the highest ever recorded in South London (Kew gardens). The meteorological office accepted a reading from Brogdale that was higher but most doubt its accuracy. As a result, most people consider UK's highest and most accurate reading as the one from Kew.
