District Line Walk – Day 5
Wimbledon to Wimbledon Park
The next branch on the District line is the Wimbledon branch. I leave Wimbledon tube station passing through the shopping area and over Wimbledon Bridge.

Wimbledon is most famous for its association with the Wimbledon tennis championships. Unsurprisingly there are loads of tennis courts in Wimbledon Park. There is also a bowling green, a lake and a golf course.

I walk through some residential areas on Sutherland Grove and Keswick Road.
East Putney to Putney Bridge
Upper Richmond Road and Putney High Street are major shopping areas.
Putney Bridge to Parsons Green
I head towards Kings Road.
Parsons Green to Fulham Broadway
On Parsons Green Lane are some large red brick buildings. On Fulham Road are shops and restaurants.

Walking along Fulham Road the most noticable building is Chelsea Football Club, owned by Russian oil billionaire Roman Abramovich.
West Brompton to Earl’s Court
I walk past the south side of the Earl’s Court Exhibition building and then walk through Eardley Crescent.
