Zone 1 - Marylebone - Baker Street, London

This swanky London neighbourhood feels uncrowded despite its central location

Marylebone (pronounced mar-le-bone) is an affluent, residential district of white terraced Georgian and Edwardian townhouses, the grandest of which are still single-family.

Marylebone area has been an incredibly fashionable part of London since at the least the seventeenth century. Famous residents lived here, as for example, the most famous detective in the world: Sherlock Holmes. This part of London is one of the most world-famous shopping destination. Indeed, the iconic Oxford Circus is the southern border of this area. All most famous brands, boutique, and historical shops are very close to our short let holiday apartments in this part of London.  In particular, the glossy and historical Selfridges department store is every bit as good as Harrods. Come here for everything from haute couture and baby clothes to organic butchery and extravagant cakes. There's also a specialist travel bookshop called Daunt Books that's worth a detour just for its Edwardian fixtures and fittings.

Baker Street is one of one most important street of Marylebone district of the City of Westminster. It is named after builder William Baker, who laid the street out in the 18th century. According to the stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, between 1881-1904, the fictional detective Sherlock Holmes lived at 221B Baker Street address. Now, it is possible to visit the official home: the Sherlock Holmes Museum. The house is protected by the government due to its "special architectural and historical interest" while the 1st-floor study overlooking Baker Street is still faithfully maintained for posterity as it was kept in Victorian Times.  

The street is served by the London Underground by Baker Street tube station, one of the world's oldest surviving underground stations. Baker Street station is also connected to other lines: Jubilee, Metropolitan, Hammersmith & City lines. From this station is very easy to get to any other parts of London.

Just a couple of minutes far from Baker Street station, under the green dome of Madame Tussauds, millions of tourists get close enough to hug their heroes and take the perfect photo with wax figures of the world’s most famous faces:  music stars, Hollywood film legends, sporting greats, historical icons, local heroes. In particular, here you can meet the Queen and all the royal family, One Direction, George Cloney, James Bond and many others VIPs!

The beautiful architecture 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 and excellent local restaurants as well as an impressive mix of luxury hotels - and a farmer's market every Saturday.

It's also home to the Wallace Collection, where the girl with the billowing skirts in Jean-Honoré Fragonard's The Swing remains as seductive as when France's dirty old master painted her in 1767.  

The location is amazing because it's a good starting point for who want to discover the essence of London. Several buses and underground lines easily connect Marylebone and Baker Street with the Big Ben, London Eye, Westminster, Camden, Notting Hill, Hyde Park, etc. If you love walking, it is recommendable to go through the Regent's Park and visit London Zoo. Or, to walk up to Bond Street, Oxford Circus and then Piccadilly Circus.
