St. John's Wood

Your All In London guide to St. John's Wood

St John’s Wood is located centrally in the City of Westminster and is within close proximity of Regent’s Park. Originally, St John’s Wood was part of Great Middlesex Forest but became a London suburb in the early 19th century. During the 19th century there was a huge boom in spacious townhouses which made St John’s Wood popular with the gentry who preferred this style of housing to the terraced housing commonly seen elsewhere in the city.

Highly desirable St. John’s Wood benefits from having Regent’s Park on its doorstep as well as being home to Lord’s, the cricket ground with the spectacular space capsule-shaped Natwest Media Centre, well worth a nosey whether you’re interested in the cricket or not. Modern, swish-looking apartment blocks mingle with elegant townhouses, some of which are fenced in by high hedges for the sake of privacy, after all, this is the celebrity neighbourhood of choice alongside Primrose Hill and Hampstead. On the high street you will see cafes, the odd charity shop and designer boutiques, although the latter are more James Lakeland than D&G.

Famous locations within the St John’s Wood district include Lord’s Cricket Ground and the Abbey Road Studios, renowned for being the place where The Beatles recorded their records.
