St John’s Wood Area guide
With broad avenues of splendid period villas, and peppered with landmarks like Lord’s Cricket Ground and Abbey Road, St John’s Wood is rightfully one of London’s prime residential areas.
St John’s Wood: village life in north west London
The Regent’s canal sweeps around the northern end of beautiful Regent’s Park, while the green hills of Hampstead and Highgate rise up in the distance. St John’s Wood is in an enviable part of London: smart, fashionable and still in walking distance to the West End, yet with a distinctive village feel that people fall in love with.
Apartments and houses in St John’s Wood
Generous mansion flats, apartments in modern designer blocks, and beautiful detached houses abound. St John’s Wood has the broad, tree-lined avenues and stucco-fronted villas that are the trademarks of this well-heeled district of north-west London, with new developments and redevelopments popping up all the time for those with contemporary tastes. The area is connected with many famous occupants past and present.
St John’s Wood attractions
Attractions include London Zoo to the south, the sports grounds at the northern end of Regent’s Park for weekend activities, and relaxing walks along the canal towpaths. Lord’s Cricket Ground is the home of cricket, and of course the most famous pedestrian crossing in the world is located on Abbey Road — immortalised on the Beatles album of the same name. EMI Studios are located on Abbey Road, and all year round hordes of music fans have their photos taken outside the famous gates and on the crossing. You can also visit Primrose Hill, which has one of the finest views of London, and stroll to Hampstead Heath for wide open spaces that feel more country than city.
