London area of St John's Wood guide

What to do and where to stay in London's St John's Wood neighbourhood

This leafy area to the west of Regent's Park is one of the few parts of central London to be developed with low density villas. Detached and semi-detached houses with large gardens are common here, and this has made it one of the most desirable areas of London for families with children as well as an untouristy place largely free of hustle, hotels and crowded haunts. It's an area that's full of eccentric architecture, and it is also the home of England's most eccentric sport: Lord's cricket ground lies at the centre of the neighbourhood. And for those who like a bit of useless trivia: St John's Wood is the only Tube station name not to contain any letters from the word 'mackerel'.
