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.
Well connected with close proximity to Regents Park
What I like most about the area is great connectivity and no occurrence of negative incidents. Hence the area is great to stay with kids or pets. I absolutely love walking in Regents Park - it is so lively there.
Great access to tube through Baker Street Station (<10min walk), to Santander bikes (<7min walk), to bus stops (two of them within 5min walk). Some of the buses are 24x7. You can even get Zip cars if you would like to drive. Streets are usually busy during the day but the traffic never stops. The pavements are clean throughout the week except on Sunday.
I'm on Park Road where a lot of people rent, maybe because there is a post grad institution close by i.e. London Business School. Hence, there are lot of young people in the area. You are also likely to see a lot of pet owners in the area as well. In more than two years of staying in the area, I have never come across any anti-social behavior. Also, bin collection is regular except Sunday I think.
The postcode is amazing with respect to amenities - there are several supermarkets close by - including Co-Op, Tesco and The Fruit Garden. Lots of space for physical exercise as the postcode is right next to Regents Park. Due to close proximity to Baker Street, there are lots of eating options - my favorites include Itsu, You Me Sushi, Walk to Wok, Chipotle, and, Joe and the Juice. And of course, lots of pubs in the area - The Volunteer, The Windsor Castle (good pizza here), etc. Lastly, the postcode is close to Church Street Market which is a farmer's market for fresh veggies - I try to get most of my veggies from there.
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
