St John’s Wood and Primrose Hill area guide

Discover the finest restaurants, bars and things to do in St John’s Wood and Primrose Hill

Love London Awards St Johns Wood and Primrose Hill

Smart and desirable, though of course expensive, St John’s Wood and nearby Primrose Hill are destinations in themselves; relaxed and leafy, and resolutely un-touristy, they’re filled with beautiful restaurants and green spaces. The most famous attraction is the iconic Abbey Road recording studios and that zebra crossing (tourists come from all over the world to hold up traffic and recreate the Beatles album cover). If you fancy something a little more sporty, Lord’s Cricket Ground, which keeps the area busy all summer, ranks a close second. If you want a place to take the kids there’s always Regent’s Park and the ever-reliable London Zoo
