London Off The Beaten Path: 1,702 reviews and 3,054 photos
The Wombles of Wimbledon Common is a story we all grew up with... so much so that when we visited Wimbledon Common for the first time... I was actually keeping an eye out for one hehe (not that I would admit that out loud!haha)
http://womble.designwest.com/womble_stories.html is a site I stumbled on with lovely stories and memories of what the Wombles have meant to different people. Many people (I hadnt realised this!) have actually travelled to Wimbledon from afar to visit the Common.
It being a Common, there are not tons of things to do that are indoors.
This museum is nice as it is educational for both kids and adults. Inside they ahve many mini windmills showing how they have developed through the ages. They have a film showing how mills are built, I found this particularly interesting!
Schools come here on visits, so it is advisable to cisit this on a weekend or a public holiday, so the place is not deluged with eager youngesters :)
