Web Design Wimbledon

If you are looking for Web Design Wimbledon, Pink Spider can offer you a fabulous bespoke website design together with a personal and friendly service. 

Your Local Wimbledon Web Designer

I’m Monique and as a Wimbledon resident, I enjoy working with other locals to help get their businesses online. Like many other small businesses, I work from home and enjoy the flexibility that this offers.

Why Local is Best

It is easy nowadays to do business purely by email or over the phone.

However, with so many virtual businesses offering impersonal services, I’ve found that many people are preferring the more traditional way of doing business. This means being able to meet up and chat face to face so that you can get to know who you’re working with and get across your ideas more easily.

I usually meet up with clients in a local cafe either in Southfields or Wimbledon. But if you would like me to come to you I am very happy to do that.

My Wimbledon Web Design Clients

I am very lucky to have had the pleasure of meeting some wonderful Wimbledon residents who run their own businesses. Here is what three of my Wimbledon clients say about my local web design service: 

“Monique listened very carefully to what I hoped my site could look like - my own stylish piece of cyber space was enormously important to me for obvious reasons. I didn't have to repeat things, or worry that I wouldn't be able to get in touch with Monique. She was always at the end of an email to answer my questions, she discussed everything in detail with me and came up with some very smart solutions. Paying attention to detail and being creative is in fact two of her many talents.”

(Joanne Hegarty - A Personal Stylist in Wimbledon inspiredpersonalstyling.co.uk)

“...Monique was the perfect collaborator in every respect: a great listener who took on board my ideas about the story behind the site and what I wanted it to communicate, and she transformed these ideas into something that surpassed my expectations. She worked quickly and efficiently in building the site and the "after-care" that she has provided has also been greatly appreciated. I commend her unreservedly.”

(Stephen Carpenter - a Wimbledon based business running cultural holidays at carpenterholidays.com)

“ I found  Monique at pinkspider.co uk and was delighted from the first moment.  Monique met with me personally to fully understand what I wanted. She went to great lengths to ensure that I was happy with the proposed designs and guided me through all set-up procedures. The end result is nothing short of superb and Monique is always there to answer any queries.   The best thing I ever did was contact PinkSpider.co.uk and I would recommend them wholeheartedly to anyone looking for a new website that fully meets their needs.”

(Marie Atallah - a Wimbledon resident who runs singinfrench.com teaching children French through drama and music).

Wimbledon: The local area

Wimbledon is in the south west London borough of Merton (which also includes Morden & MItcham). The population is around 68,000.

Wimbledon Tennis

It is most known for the Wimbledon Tennis Championships which take place every summer (usually end of June / early July. Floods of visitors arrive into Southfields (the nearest and most convenient tube station to the courts) and make their way along Wimbledon Park Road to the courts which are just under a mile and about a 15 minute walk away in Church Road SW19.

The tennis lasts for two weeks after which Wimbledon and Southfields resumes relative normality again.

Wimbledon Common

One of the most beautiful parts of Wimbledon is the stunning woodland and common.  Many people will have heard of this as there were much loved children’s fictional stories written by Elizabeth Beresford about the Wombles of Wimbledon Common.

There are mounted keepers or rangers who ride on horseback around the common to ensure everyone is safe and to make sure that rules are being adhered to. 

The Common attracts many runners and cyclists (there are designated cycle routes) as well as picnickers and walkers. Although barbecues are not allowed on the common due to the danger of fires, you will occasionally see the rules flouted.

There is a Windmill (also a museum) that has stood on the common since 1817 and is open to visitors. A cafe also sits in the vicinity of the windmill offering teas, cakes, lunches and refreshments.

Wimbledon Village

This is probably as close as you will get to a village in South London! Wimbledon Village is a lovely well-kept area and is the wealthiest part of Wimbledon with even terraced properties selling for over £1m.

It has a fantastic shopping area with designer clothes shops, small cafes and good pubs, bars and restaurants. 

Some of the most popular pubs in the Village are the Dog & Fox, Crooked Billet, Fox & Grapes and the Hand in Hand.

The Village also offers the chance to learn horse riding at the Wimbledon Village Stables and is in fact the oldest known riding stables in this country.

Wimbledon Town

The main town of Wimbledon has a shopping mall “Centre Court” (owing its name to the tennis court). It also has a tube station and overground plus a very good bus service.

Businesses in Wimbledon

There are lots of thriving businesses here. In fact, the UK headquarters of the car sharing company Zipcar is based in Wimbledon. The GMB (General Trade Union) also has its head offices in Wimbledon.

New Wimbledon Theatre

The New Wimbledon Theatre is a beautiful Grade II listed building and first opened in 1910 with a performance of the pantomime “Jack and Jill”. The Ambassador Theatre Group bought the theatre in 2004 and rescued it from redevelopment.

Famous Wimbledon Residents

Wimbledon has attracted many well-known and renowned habitants which have included actor Oliver Reed, film director Ridley Scott, William Wilberforce (anti-slavery campaigner), Marcus Mumford (Mumford & Sons), Thomas Hughes (writer of Tom Brown’s Schooldays).
