An area of tree-lined avenues, popular with the wealthy and well-known, St John's Wood is a lovely area of the capital with quick access to the centre.
In the northwest of London, close to Regent’s Park, business travellers coming to stay in serviced apartments in St John’s Wood will probably note just how green it is for an area so close to the centre of a major capital city. As might be expected, therefore, the area is known as one of London’s most affluent neighbourhoods. Housing in St John's Wood is relatively low density for London, with a mix of grand mansions and Regency houses, as well as some more modest suburban semis. Where there has been recent building, it tends to be in a contemporary and exclusive style.
St John’s Wood was once quite bohemian and popular with artists, and is nowadays somewhat of a haven for celebrities. The American School in London also means that there is sizable American community. St John’s Wood has its own tube station on the Jubilee Line, making the centre and Thames area easy to access. Nearby attractions include Abbey Road studios, where The Beatles recorded, and also London Zoo.
Unsurprisingly, property prices in the area are extremely high, even for London, and this also translates to the rental market, with a 2014 survey determining that St John’s Wood paid the highest average rent in London. With apartments just minutes away from the underground station, this makes our St John’s Wood serviced apartments a sensible solution for staying longer in the area.
