Marylebone, where the very first London bus route began, has a rich cultural and historic past and is famously known as the fictional home of detective Sherlock Holmes. Right between Hyde Park, Oxford Street and Regents Park, Marylebone is certainly one of London’s most fashionable and up-market districts. There is so much to do and see in this area it is definitely worth a visit. It is home to central London’s most upmarket Farmers market, Cabbages and Frocks which is held every Sunday morning in the grounds of St Marylebone’s Parish Church. We would suggest checking out Alfies Antique Market on Church Street which is the largest indoor antique market in London (Open Tuesday to Saturday 10am-6pm).
Another must-see in the area is the Sherlock Holmes Museum, Madame Tussaud’s and the impressive Wallace collection which houses a collection of 18th and 19 th century paintings. The area also provides a range of products at a range of prices. If you fancy a cup of tea, posh cuisine or superb cocktails there are plenty of spots along Marylebone High Street.
If you’re up for a little bit of shopping then you are in the right area! Oxford Street is a stones throw away along with many other local shopping districts (10 minute walk). Marylebone is definitely an area we highly recommend checking out, whether you stay here or just visit for the day.
