Lord's, the home of cricket, is in St John's Wood, NW8
Cricket fans will be flocking to Lord's, London's infamous "home of cricket", as England take on Australia in the next nail-biting match of the Ashes series.

The spotlight will be firmly on the leafy neighbourhood of St John’s Wood, with its enviable high street, stucco homes and cute village atmosphere.

We take a property tour, starting from the cricket ground and following the picturesque Regent's Canal along to Warwick Avenue and Little Venice, to find flats for first-time buyers, charming canalside homes and, for the ultimate cricket fan, a luxury penthouse with a bird's-eye view of the pitch.
