St John’s Wood Travel Links:

St John’s Wood is a suburb of London that was developed in the 18th century. It is connected with central London by two Underground stations – St John’s Wood and Swiss Cottage, both of which are on the Jubilee line. St John’s Wood tube station is also conveniently located close to the top of St John’s Wood High Street, and only a 5-minute walk from Lords Cricket Ground. There are also regular bus routes that link St John’s Wood with central London, as well as various parts of north-west London including Chesham, Golders Green, Kilburn Park, Kingsbury/West Hendon and Hampstead Heath. If you like to grab a taxi every now and again (post-Oxford Street shopping), then it usually takes around 15 minutes to reach central from the heart of St John’s Wood.

Hampstead Travel Links:

The nearest mainline railway station is Finchley Road & Frognal on the Bakerloo line which has connections to Central London, as well as Hampstead station giving you access to the Northern Line, connecting residents of Hampstead with quick and easy tube access to central and south London, including Battersea. The closest station to Oxford St and surrounding areas when travelling via the Northern Line will be Tottenham Court Road, which is only a 5-10 minute stroll away. However, large parts of the Northern Line are shut between Moorgate and Kennington until May 2022, so expect natural disruption throughout the network. There are a number of bus routes that connect St Johns Wood with Hampstead Heath, including the 24, 82, 113, 187 and C11. The 24 bus route runs from St Johns Wood to Hampstead Heath via Regents Park, Baker Street and Chalk Farm. The 82 bus route runs from Swiss Cottage to Hampstead Heath via Primrose Hill and Belsize Park. The 113 bus route runs from Golders Green to Hampstead Heath via Cricklewood and Kilburn. The 187 bus route runs from Hendon to Hampstead Heath via Mill Hill East and Arkley. The C11 bus route runs from Maida Vale to Hampstead Heath via Little Venice and Camden Town.

Regents Park Travel Links:

Regent’s Park sits closer to central London than its St John’s Wood, Hampstead and Maida Vale counterparts, with multiple tube and bus access points. Regents Park station is located on the Bakerloo line, just a few stops from Warwick Avenue, and a 10-minute walk to Marylebone, Fitzrovia and Oxford Street. You are also connected to the Circle and District line by accessing the Great Portland Street station, a 2-minute walk from Regents Park. If you are in a rush or prefer travelling by taxi, the Regents Park area is crowded with black cabs and private hire options, such as Uber, due to the larger populations of tourists that tend to visit this area of London.

Maida Vale Travel Links:

Maida Vale is a mostly residential location in London. It’s also where you’ll find Maida Vale tube station (on the Bakerloo line) and many bus routes (such as the 52 to Oxford Circus or 139 to Willesden Junction). You can drive there too – it’s about 4 miles from the centre of London. If you are located further towards the Little Venice area of Maida Vale, your best tube connection will be Warwick Avenue, which also resides on the Bakerloo line.
