“Lovely part of the Capital....village feel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2013

Lovely part of the Capital, just a few minutes walk from our accommodation. Formerly a village, it retains that 'feel'. There are green areas, a 'high street' with shops and cafes, churches...and quietness rare in London. We like Marylebone a lot. recommended

“Our gateway to London”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2013

Traveling from the Midlands to London, the only station available for this route was Marylebone. We were surprised by the many shops and courtyard. Station was clean and well maintained. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Marylebone has a charm only felt in smaller English towns. Since it made such a fine first impression we returned early to relax before heading back to Kidderminster and enjoyed every minute.

“A wonderful part of London”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2013

The village feel of the area has been very well preserved. A true delight. The retail content of the area is tightly controlled and very well managed. A great place to enjoy London for a few hours.

“Lovely area for relaxing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2013

From Paddington Street Gardens to St Christopher's Place, Marylebone has some lovely areas ( I originally wrote lovey areas - not far from the truth, as there is a high sleb watch factor, from Barbara Windsor/ permatanned blokes I feel I should know (perhaps the ubiquitous Dale Winton?) to any member of the royal family who have health issues - most recently The Queen - March 2013 -, but recently Kate in early pregnancy sickness issues & Phil the Greek with waterworks problems); not high power, busy busy, but high class shopping and interesting architecture - lovely CofE St Marylebone church, flying buttresses on the catholic church of St James, the memorial to Wesley in the small gardens opposite the rather nice - but a bit expensive - restaurant started by Conran, Orrery, in an old tyre factory (named after the Earl of O who designed a scheme of the solar system with moving planets - all very brass and intricate).
There are loads of (I'm a bloke; I don't know) very nice looking fashion shops. The food is good, but perhaps the jewel in the Marylebone crown is the Wallace Collection in Manchester Square; sublime Titian, Rubens, Rembrandt, Hals (The Laughing Cavalier), Velàzquez, Poussin (A Dance to the Music of Time), Canaletto, Gainsborough and Lawrence. Plus, if you like the overblown french ( sorry M Francais) , Fragonard, Boucher and Watteau. Fantastic porcelain, Japanese art and Japanese armour etc etc.

So, expensive, lovely and interesting - if you don't go shopping it's lovely and interesting. I've worked in Marylebone for nearly 15 years and still look up at interesting buildings and think - I hadn't noticed that before.

“The Way It Use To Be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2013

Surrounded by vibrant and bustling London this area has retained an almost unchanged part of Town. Local not theme based pubs excellent restaurants and food shops - not quite so frenetic as most of London. Worth a visit.
