Just minutes from Oxford Street and a short step away from the tourist hordes, is Marylebone, a pocket of calm in the heart of central London, that has the feel of a genuine neighbourhood or city village. A wander around the streets reveals some of London’s finest homes, many hailing from the Georgian era and architects such as Robert Adam.
Marylebone has been one of London’s highly fashionable areas since at least the seventeenth century, as the catalogue of its influential and famous residents, past and present, attests. Having Oxford Street as its southern border makes Marylebone a world-famous shopping destination, and a scout around the side streets will reveal beautiful specialist shops and boutiques that sell anything from Japanese denim to Stradivarius violins. Life really centres on and around the busy high street, which brims with cafes and bars, unique independent stores, high-end designers and excellent restaurants. The farmers market on Sunday is fantastic, and a visit to the Wallace Collection in Manchester Square is a must.
Because you’re in Marylebone, there are numerous transports links to the entire city. The trendy East End, pretty Primrose Hill, or the culture of the Southbank, are all a short bus or tube ride away.
