Open House Festival


Back to neighbourhoods


An area known for being the home of lawn tennis, Wimbledon’s Centre Court is in the process of being transformed into a community hub. Why not take a tour of Centre Court’s Shopping Centre restoration, complete with a roof-top farm? A stone’s throw from here you can visit Bazalgette Mausoleum before heading to nearby Cannizaro Park, where a group of Victorian potting sheds have been converted into artist’s studios. Here you can see an exhibition of the artist’s works. Finish the neighbourhood tour at Wimbledon Windmill — a rare example of a hollow post mill, built in 1817 — just a twenty-minute walk from Cannizaro Studios Potting Sheds.
