  1. About St John's Wood

    St John's Wood is a district of north-west London, in the City of Westminster, and at the north-west end of Regent's Park. It is approximately 2.5 miles north-west of Charing Cross. Once part of the Great Middlesex Forest, it was later owned by the Knights of St John of Jerusalem. It is home to some of the most expensive properties in the world. St John's Wood was developed from the early 19th century onwards. It was one of the first London suburbs to be developed with a large amount of low density "villa" housing, as opposed to the terraced housing which was the norm in London up to the 19th century, even in expensive districts. Parts of St John's Wood have been rebuilt at a higher density, but it remains a highly desirable residential district. St John's Wood is the location of Lord's Cricket Ground. It is also famous for Abbey Road Studios and the street Abbey Road, where The Beatles recorded, notably the Abbey Road album, the cover of which features the band crossing the road.

  2. Feedback from St John's Wood locals

    St John's Wood High Street is full of niche boutiques where money can easily be left behind. You can recreate the Beatles album cover on the famous Abbey Road crossing, and as for the down time, nothing beats a nice long walk around Regent's Park. Submitted by Alex, February 2015

    The Waterway pub is my personal favourite - a great place to sit by the canal and enjoy the summer sunshine whilst having lunch, watching the boats go by. Submitted by Kristian, February 2015

    St John's Wood is beautiful. Submitted by Matthew, January 2015
