London Off The Beaten Path: 1,530 reviews and 2,338 photos
If you want to experience something fun and I think traditionally a London experience I would recommend a trip to the Wimbledon Dogs.
The admission is GBP5 which includes a racecard. There are several races every 15 minutes I tended to only bet on every second race. The bet minimum is GBP1 so your option is
WIN GBP1, PLACE (first or second) GBP2 REVERSE FORECAST (your first & second in any order) GBP2 or FORECAST.
The rabbit goes first and the dogs chase like mad not that they ever catch the rabbit. The dogs are paraded before the race so you can make your selection also on the racecard it provides details or their previous races and possible predictions. I say ignore all this and go with the name that tweaks your fancy.
This makes a great day out for a group doors open at 6.30 with the first race starting at 7.30 and ends around 10.30pm Tuesday, Friday and Saturdays.
There is a charity set up to find retired greyhounds suitable homes they make lovely pets.
Drinks are roughly GBP3 and there is fast food available but be warned there are usually long queues. Free parking is available.
We took a taxi from Wimbledon station which cost about GBP8 when you exit the stadium make sure you take a black cab as the normal taxis will charge more suprisingly
Plough Lane London SW17 0BL Haydons Road rail or Totting Broadway tube or Wimbledon tube
