Neighbourhood: Marylebone
Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
How to get there

A very pleasant place to sit and eat lunch.
Also trying to get to the truth of something I heard some years ago; that the gardens are an ancient burial site, and whether that was destroyed by the building of an underground car park!

Nice place to have a picnic, or eat from one of the food trucks during the Underbelly Festival, where they apparently have many other activities on the agenda (circus, comedy, etc.).

The garden wasn't my main focal point when passing through on our bus tour, the recessed figure with Latin above it was...I still haven't managed to learn anymore about it.

We had spent a busy morning exploring some parts of the West End that we hadn’t been to during previous stays in London. Afterwards, we had spent a couple of hours shopping along Oxford Street.
Eventually, by early afternoon we were hungry and in need of a rest. We remembered from our last visit to Oxford Street that nearby Cavendish Square Gardens provided a bit of a haven from the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street. Consequently, we purchased some sandwiches and cool drinks then headed there to take a break.
Unfortunately, when we arrived there, we discovered that some parts of the square and gardens were under renovation. As a result, there was only limited space for workers and visitors to sit and east their lunches. After spending a bit of time looking around, we finally found two spots on a shared park bench. We were just happy to find somewhere to rest our feet and enjoy a quick bite to eat.
Sadly, because of the renovation work our surroundings were not particularly salubrious. Hopefully, by the time that we next visit London, the Cavendish Square Gardens will be fully restored and we will be able to enjoy improved surroundings whilst we snack on our sandwiches!

Cavendish Square contains in its middle attractive gardens with aboard containing useful information about the history of the square originally conceived in 1717. There is a quirky sculpture, a currently empty plinth at the centre and plenty of seats and grass for sunbathing. Access is made a little difficult as one has to negotiate the ugly concrete entrance to the underground car park beneath dating from 1971.

This public gardens is set in Cavendish Square is a public square, close to Oxford Circus, at the juncture where Oxford Street and Regent Street meet.

The gardens is actually quite small, but well maintains as you'd expect in an expensive area of London and also contain some interesting statues and sculptures.

Established in 1717, the gardens with their mature trees benefit from the way that the grass undulates, giving it contours which other gardens in London squares don't have.

There is a statue of Lord George Bentick on the south side, a plinth of an equestrian statue - but no statue - and two temporary contemporary artworks.

Around the square is a variety of buildings including John Lewis's flagship store and a convent at the centre of the north side with Jacob Epstein's statue of the Virgin and Child between the two wings.

There are excellent connections to Oxford Street, Regent's Street and to Harley Street and several plaques commemmorate famous people who lived and worked in the square.
