7. St Ann's Terrace a quick walk round the Wood

 Return to the junction of St Johns Wood Terrace and St Ann’s Terrace

Duke of York Public House

was  opened by developer and publican John White  in 1826. It is still very popular, particularly when cricket is on at Lord’s and the pavements outside become very crowded.

Turn right up St Ann’s Terrace

There are many examples of attractive stucco houses; those on the left were designed and built by Joseph Hibberd  in 1850. If you stand back you will see that although individual dwellings, the terrace appears as one large mansion.

Coming to Acacia Road, turn left for St John’s Wood Underground Station

This is listed as a Grade Two historic building as it still has much of its original fabric, including one of only three surviving sets of bronze escalator uplights, and two Underground roundel signs reading To Trains and Way Out.  Harold Stabler designed eighteen tiles for London Underground, in 1936, including one of Thomas Lord.
