The local area guide to living in St John's Wood

Along with the neighbouring area of Primrose Hill, St John’s Wood in north London is the premiere location for celebrity homes. Located along the edge of beautiful Regent’s Park, it attracts an endless supply of musicians, artists, socialites, and models.

The area was developed in the nineteenth century, making it a relatively new area of London, and it boasts an eclectic mix of architecture, including stately townhouses, handsome mansion blocks, detached villas and architecturally daring modern homes. Many of the houses are very large and well appointed, meaning they attract wealthy people from all over the world, which has edged house prices above the seven-figure mark.

The shops and amenities in the area reflect the wealth of its inhabitants, and there are plenty of speciality food stores, delis, designer clothing boutiques, gentrified pubs, and posh restaurants. The ambience of the area is calm and relaxed, thanks to the detached villa-style houses, which give the area a sense of space not found in more densely populated areas like Islington or Notting Hill.

Alongside Regent’s Park, with its beautiful gardens and, of course, London Zoo, the area also boasts Lord’s Cricket Ground. And, one of the best views in London is found upon the top of Primrose Hill. The area also is home to Abbey Road, made famous by The Beatles and arguably the most well-known road in the world today.

Information about the local residents

The average house price in St John’s Wood is £1.1m, making it clear why the area attracts so many of the rich, famous, and successful. There is little social housing in the area and recent benefit caps put it firmly out of reach for all but the upper middle classes.

As you would expect from such a wealthy area, over 45% of the population are educated to degree level. The area also has very low crime statistics compared to the rest of London and has an average age of 35, despite nearly 20% of its population being retired.

Nearby schools

As you would expect for such an affluent area, most of the local schools have excellent reputations, especially the public schools, which include Arnold House School and the American School in London. The Quintin Kynaston Academy is the only state secondary school and is currently rated by Ofsted as ‘requiring improvement’, having been rated as ‘outstanding’ in two previous inspections. There are more state schools in nearby Marylebone and Maida Vale.

There are plenty of primary schools to choose from, with Barrow Hill Junior School, being rated as ‘good’ and George Eliot Primary School as ‘outstanding’.

Getting around

Being located in central London, St John’s Wood has excellent transport links. St John’s Wood underground station is situated on the Jubilee Line, making it easy to reach the rest of London. Located near to Paddington Station, links to the south west, Wales, and Heathrow are easily accessible, and the area enjoys an excellent bus service.

Local shops

St John’s Wood High Street is a very pleasant place to shop and not as inaccessible as you might think, considering the wealth of the people who shop there. It has a slightly bohemian edge and is packed with independent shops, restaurants, cafes and bars, but doesn’t have the intimidating rows of high fashion outlets commonly found in other wealthy areas of London. It does have its share of well-known brands, but they are ones at the upper end of the market, such as Nicolas, Whistles, Space NK and Carluccio’s.

Cinema and theatre lovers aren’t catered for in St John’s Wood, but these facilities can be found very nearby in Hampstead and Swiss Cottage. Also within easy reach is Camden, which has a plethora of music venues to suit all tastes.
