About St Johns Wood London
St John’s Wood is a district in the City of Westminster, London, lying about 2.5 miles (4 km) northwest of Charing Cross. Much of the neighbourhood is covered by a conservation area, a small part of which extends into neighbouring Camden.
Traditionally the northern part of the ancient parish and Metropolitan Borough of Marylebone, it extends east to west from Regent’s Park to the Edgeware Road, with the Swiss Cottage area of Hampstead lying to the north.
Once part of the Great Middlesex Forest, it was from 1238 a wooded farm of St John’s Priory, Clerkenwell (the Knights of St John of Jerusalem) before Protestant Edward VI of England sold the farm to noblemen. It is an affluent neighbourhood, with the area postcode (NW8) ranked by Forbes magazine as the fifth most expensive in London, based on average home prices in 2007.
