If you come by Eurotunnel on the train or by ferry to Dover you will be passing through the county of Kent on your way to London often referred to as "The Garden of England" because of it's bountiful countryside and farmland.
Being the closest part of England to the continent it has an interesting past maintained to this day meaning that there are many interesting sites to visit. There is a ferry from Dieppe to Newhaven in East Sussex which is closer than Dover. The South of England is where you will catch the best weather as a rule.
Getting into London's centre from Wimbledon is easy. Public transport provides all the options that a visitor may need and also saves the difficulties of traffic and parking that travelling to the centre of this busy, thriving city may present. Having said that car travel in town is possible for those who can take it!
A short list of what London has to offer is almost impossible to provide but here is a sample:
Shopping in the West End
Theatres and entertainment in the West End
The London Eye
The Thames and boat trips
Tate Britain art gallery
Shakespeare's Globe theatre
etc, etc, etc!!!
Similarly the surrounding countryside has much to offer and Wimbledon's great advantage is that it is conveniently placed to get into the centre or head out of London without difficulty. The A3 which is no more than 5 minutes from the house will soon lead out of London by car or Wimbledon station 10 minutes walk down the road will take you by overground train to Brighton for a visit to the seaside.
Some attractions :

Epsom Derby and grounds
There is truly something for everyone.
The apartment is conveniently located 5 minutes around the corner from Wimbledon Village a beautiful stylish area offering a broad range of restaurants, boutiques, shops and bars to choose from. The Common is at the end of the road great for walks, exercise, golf or just sitting in the sun and watching the world go by! Richmond Park leads on from the Common for those feeling like a long wander.
The world famous tennis grounds of Wimbledon are another 10 minutes on from the village with the tournament and museum. Anyone for tennis?!
At the bottom of the hill there is Wimbledon Broadway where there is a comprehensive selection of shops supermarkets, cinemas, theatres etc all 10 minutes walk away. Here the station provides great transport for London or elsewhere.
