London area of Marylebone guide

What to do and where to stay in London's Marylebone neighbourhood

Just a short step away from the tourist hordes, Marylebone still has the feel of a real neighbourhood, though a slightly odd one: the wealthy residents are becoming ever more attractive as Harley Street, the traditional home of England's best doctors, has recently become the heart of the UK's flourishing plastic surgery industry. The beautiful architecture (the Wallace Collection is a must) and the open spaces of Regent's Park make this a fine area to have a wander, while Marylebone High Street is absolutely charming, lined with traditional pubs, beautiful boutiques and shops (including the flagship Daunt Books) and excellent local restaurants as well as an impressive mix of hotels - and a farmer's market every Saturday. A short walk from Marylebone is the home of the most famous fictional detective in the world ''“ Sherlock Holmes' bachelor flat at 221B Baker Street ''“ and the popular waxworks at Madame Tussauds.
