The Paradise that is St. John's Wood
I love living here. I could live anywhere in the world if I wanted to but I've found nowhere else better! The image of NW8 is one of wealth and celebrity but it's not like that at all. OK there are famous people hanging around but it doesn't make a difference. It's a fair mix of all sorts. I think it's a relatively safe area, certainly beautiful.
Very well served by public transport. We have a tube station on the Jubilee Line. Several bus routes will get you here including night buses. London black cabbies are here all the time as they have there own cabbie hut close to "the burial". Also coaches to and from London have stops here.
My area has always felt safe with very little anti social behaviour. Even with thirty thousand cricket fans there is very little trouble as they all disappear pretty quickly. On my street three is free parking all weekend! Most of this street is rented with a few private housing dotted about. Largely family housing among the thousands of trees which surround us. The whole area is very well maintained and attractive.
I live in the paradise that is St. John's Wood, London. We are not blessed with many shops, restaurants & bars yet we are blessed with quality. Here you will find one of the city's best Deli = Panzers, a legendary shop here since 1944, we also have Harry Morgans New York Deli restaurant serving home made food in generous portions. There are many exclusive boutique clothing shops on the High Street. Several coffee shops and cafe's are dotted around. Behind St. John's Wood Church is a small local park known locally as "The Burial" is beautifully maintained by a small team of dedicated gardeners. The Regents Park borders the area with London Zoo close by. Great views of London are to be found at Primrose Hill. Lord's Cricket Ground is in NW8 and Abbey Road are also here where visitors are able to see one of our most famous zebra crossings in the area. We also have a 3D zebra crossing. St. John's Wood has a unique and noted light which is one of the reasons that historically the area attracted many artists. Blue plaque hunters won't be disappointed as we have many including Mme. Tussaud, Benjamin Britten, Billy Fury + lots more. NW8 does not have many "take away" shops if any! (though all of the restaurants and cafes adopted this service during the Corona virus lockdowns). There is no automatic laundry for miles! No doubt about it St. John's Wood is one of the loveliest areas in London.
Its a bit old fashioned with the red green and blue buildings but does feel like home
Its a bit old fashioned with the red green and blue buildings but does feel like home. I think more shops should open below the buildings rather than parking garages. More money for the community. People would shop local. Giving more jobs with the community. May even help with the young troubles. Plus im pretty sure who ever owns those garages would get more money as a shop
Theres bus stops all around us all minutes walk away. Going in all directions. Got marlybone station 10 minuted away and edgware road station 15 minutes away. Have the santander cycle service downstairs. We do get alot of traffic on marlybone road and edgware road. Cycling and bus is easier
There are loads of parking space do tend to get hard to find a spot after 6. Bins dont smell like they used to which is great. There are alot of young boys and girls who never have given me any problems but do hassle others making it look like a bad area for new people The people i know off are mostly coucil housing and they live as a family. Very less home owners but there are a few that i know of.
I love the area. Nice large confectionery store literally below my building and next door to them is a fairly big laundrette i use them only for drying right opposite me is an open outdoor gym equipment free for all to use, which saves me money on the gym. Around the corner we have a decent quiet park which is nicely laid out and bit further a very large playground sectioned off for smaller children and has a large football and basketball pitch plus with a nice view, which is a stone throw away, of the canal. From my house im a few 100 yards away from church street comprised of many variety of shops and stalls and libary there too. Got regents park 10 minute walk away. Local stations are marlybone which has underground and over ground. Edgware road is just a 10 minute walk down. Everything is local .
Disappointing and residential area
At John’s wood is nice to walk and there is nice cafés there, and the proximity to the city is wonderful as you can walk to Oxford street.
It is well communicated. We have the jubilee line ten minutes walking from here, and you can definitely walk Oxford street or Camden l. There is always buses running around the area but the traffic horrible sometimes
There is a bus stop next to my street and at the end of it there is a Tesco and a few delis shops
Well, the area is seen as a residential posh area and it is true. There is a few council states around but most of the streets are full of posh and expensive houses. St Johns wood is very popular for wealthy people and they don’t doubt to buy an overpriced coffee. There is a couple of pubs around the area but extremely overpriced. On the other side of th road there is church market street full of cheap fruit and vegetables stands, but with dubious quality.
There is always space to park the car
