Lovely Leafy Suburb

In the area to visit Abbey road and loved wandering around. Plenty of lovely cafes to pass away a few hours people watching.

St. John's Wood is a charming neighbourhood. The central area around the High Street has some good restaurants and cafes. I was happy to see one of my fellow reviewers below extol the beuaty of the St. John's Wood Church Gardens, which I stumbled upon accidentally one June Saturday morning back in 1993 when I lived in London for several...

Went to the famous abbey road studios and the Beatles crossing and then heard of a little collectables shop just around the corner on Violet hill. St Johns wood collectables, can't miss it. Life size cut outs of the Beatles, this guy knows his stuff and has an amazing collection of various memorabilia from Beatles to other bands... Well worth... More

I made my way to Abbey road from primrose hillp when I came across this distinctly peculiar area. A lovely high street with many little stores, friendly people who seem quite laid back. People generally strolling around casually in a way that can only mean that youve left the big city and you're now in the suburbs! Lovely to experience... More

We travelled by the tube to St. John’s Wood Underground Station, primarily to visit the Lord’s Cricket Ground and Abbey Road. It was an appropriate day for us to visit Lord’s Cricket Ground as it was the last day of an Ashes test match and Australia was enjoying one of its rare successes, on this tour of England. After we... More

My wife and I paid a visit to St John's Wood Collectables, at 2, Violet Hill, St John's Wood as part of our weekend in London. We went there after we had visited The Beatlels Store, in Baker Street and Abbey Road. If you are a fan of the 60's Music especially The Beatles, or, even if you are not,... More

St John's Wood is one of the most exclusive addresses outside central London. The property prices here are enormous but you don't have to live here to visit but few 'tourists' do. The high street is buzzing with many independent shops as well as the chains you would expect and there are plenty of cafes and at least one decent... More

I love strolling around St. Johns Wood. St. Johns Wood is in North West London and is one of my best neighborhoods. I like the streets with nice trees around. It is a residential district. One of the main attractions is St. Johns Wood Church Grounds. It is a nice park with kids running around and with beautiful botanical arrangements... More
