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.
