Things to do

Marylebone has been a fashionable area in London since at least the seventeenth century – as its catalogue of famous residents (past and present) attests. Today it’s a world-famous shopping destination. Skip Oxford Street and instead amble along the much quieter and elegant Marylebone High Street, home to the famous Daunt Books. The area is also a first-class eating and drinking destination, from the world famous Chiltern Firehouse to newcomers like Bar Termini Centrale – the perfect spot for negroni fans. There are also a handful of attractions in this neck of the woods, including Madame Tussauds, the Sherlock Holmes Museum and the fascinating Wallace Collection. Mostly, though, people come here to wander the gorgeous Georgian streets and soak up the classy vibes. Now, isn’t that just as refined as it gets.  RECOMMENDED: Our London area guides.
