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.

Transport

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.

Community

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.

Amenities

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.

A vibrant area littered with amazing restaurants and bars and right by Europes biggest shopping high street, also boasts beautiful parks, canals and lakes..The best of both worlds!

I love the area I'm in as it's walking distance to some lovely little parts of London eg Little Venice, Maida Vale, St Johns Wood, Marylebone, Paddington & Edgware Road. I suppose I would class the area on my doorstep as multicultural with a strong sense of Arabic influence with Edgware Road being affectionately known as the "mini Beirut" of London with all its shisha bars & Cafes. It has a mix of international and trendyness about it. The area ia suitable for kids and pets with lots of green spaces in the area eg Hyde Park, Reagents Park and there are schools and sports clubs in the area too.

Transport

The area is extremely well connected with 24 hour buses covering most routes and I am 10 to 15 minutes walk away from Edgware Road, Marylebone & St Johns Wood underground stations. There are plenty of cycle lanes on the roads in the area and I am a 15 minutes walk away from Paddington station which has plenty of overground services on offer aswell as easy access to Heathrow airport. The traffic can be bad at times during rush hour but the congestion charge has definitely made improvements in this regard. The stations and buses and tubes are all well maintained and kept clean and to s high standard. The only issue I would have is there is alot of pollution in the area as a result of the all the cars and buses travel through aswell as noise pollution created mainly by being so closely situated to St Mary's Hospital with lots of sirens passing at all times of the day.

Community

The good aspects of living on my street are the regular street cleaners keeping the place nice and tidy. The bin and refuse collection service is on point. There is also a regular presence of police in the area which keeps anti social behaviour down. The area does suffer from noise pollution with regular sirens passing at all times of the day with St Mary's Hospital close by. My street is occupied mainly by familes and couples, more renting than owners. There is afew students in the area aswell.

Amenities

The area is really well connected with 24 hour buses covering most routes and I have Edgware Road, Marylebone and St Johns Wood underground stations all within walking distance and very close by. The highlights of my area include: - walking to the bars, restaurants and shisha lounges on Edgware Road aswell as visiting the shops/markets/restaurants/bars of Marylebone High street which is 15 minutes walk from me. - easy access into the West End (10 mins by tube to Piccadilly Circus) - Madame Tussauds and the Sherlock Holmes Museum are just 10 mins walk away. - you have one of the the world's best parks in Hyde Park close by, and Regents Park, is on my doorstep with its lake, boats, rose garden, cafes, tennis courts and outdoor theatre (in season). - the shops/restaurants of St Johns Wood and Maida Vale are close by aswell as beautiful Little Venice with its canal bars, cafes and boats tours - world famous Lords Cricket ground is just around the corner and perfect for me being a cricket lover! - London's best and most famous gourmet fish and chip shop/restaurant (The Seashell) is in the area also. - it's a 15 minute walk away to Marble Arch and Oxford Street with its plethora of shops including Selfridges, John Lewis, House Of Fraser and many other flagship stores. - just 2 minutes around the corner is Church Street Market and there is some of the best antiques shopping in London in the famous Alfie's antiques market with rooftop cafe. - there are 3 gyms close by aswell as a yoga centre (Indaba). The only 3 criticisms I have of my area are - a lack of a proper police station although there is a police drop in counter on Church Street. - homelessness is rife in the area and particlarly bad and noticeable at night. - also there is alot of noise pollution and regular sirens going by at all times of the day and night with St Marys hospital close by. All in all, I'm really happy with the facilities and amenities available in my area, and love living there with no desire to leave anytime in the future.

St John's Wood, NW8 8UF

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.

Transport

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

Community

There is a bus stop next to my street and at the end of it there is a Tesco and a few delis shops

Amenities

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.
