Here at Manors, we feel truly blessed to work in one of London’s most exclusive, stylish, and affluent areas. Marylebone is truly one of the capital’s most stunning locations and is blessed with dozens of wonderful destinations for enjoyable unforgettable experiences.
With so many fantastic options to choose from, shortlisting just 10 top things to do was tough. In no particular order, though, here are our selections:
1| Regent’s Park - NW1 4NR
In our humble opinion, Regent’s Park is the best in the capital. Whether you want to enjoy the beauty of nature with a quiet picnic, to watch a show at the Open Air Theatre, enjoy a meal at one of the cafes, or visit the London Zoo doesn’t matter.
Boredom is never an option.
2| The Ivy Cafe - W1U 2QA
The Ivy Cade is truly one of the capital’s best eating establishments. It brings the best features (a stylish setting, great food, and unforgettable dining) while providing a more relaxed ambiance. Breakfast and lunch have never tasted better.
3| Sherlock Holmes Museum - NW1 6XE
For over 125 years, Sherlock Holmes has been the most iconic fictional detective on the planet. From the moment you enter, to be greeted by Dr. Watson no less, the boutique museum takes visitors back in time to enjoy the magic that has been depicted in books and films for generations.
Do we think it’s worth a visit? No sh*t, Sherlock.
4| Wigmore Hall - W1U 2BP
Classical songs, chamber music, and jazz can all be found at the international concert and recital hall. Whether you want to catch a soloist, soprano, or group, the world-renowned venue is a truly special place to watch a performance. The grandeur of the building will last long in the memory too.
5| L'atelier des Chefs - W1U 1PH
If you want to enjoy great food in Marylebone, there are many venues to choose from. If you wish to learn the cooking techniques needed to create stunning dishes – from dim sum to sushi – at home, L’atelier des Chefs is the answer. Pro chefs provide a fun and rewarding learning experience for all.
6| The Cockpit Theatre - NW8 8EH
The fringe theatre venue was established in the 1970s and continues to put on an eclectic range of performances throughout the year, ranging from adaptations of the classics to new art from up and coming talent. The relaxed yet elegant atmosphere makes it one of London’s hidden gems.
7| Carousel London - W1U 8AB
Carousel combines two of our favourite things in culinary experiences and artistic exhibitions. The upstairs gallery offers acoustic performance, poetry recitals, and theatre workshops while the downstairs restaurant regularly hosts special events from chefs throughout London and beyond.
8| Daunt Books - W1U 4QW
Marylebone is also home to what is believed to be the world’s first custom bookshop. The beautiful Edwardian shop still boasts oak galleries and regal skylines for a truly iconic venue. Whether you buy a book or not, it’s an experience that can brighten up any day of shopping and exploration.
Every book lover and historian should visit at least once.
9| Wallace Collection - W1U 3BN
London’s West End is bursting with art and culture. The public collection of 25 galleries is housed in a stunning Townhouse and features Old Master paintings, French paintings, and an honest atmosphere that can be enjoyed by casual and passionate art lovers alike.
10| Les Providores and Tapa Room - W1U 4RX
Les Providores offers the choice of an informal dining experience downstairs or an exclusive intimate dining experience upstairs. Either way, you’ll be treated to interesting décor, a comfortable setting, and stunning Antipodean fusion dishes. It truly has something for everybody.
In addition to the array of stunning foods, it boasts London’s biggest list of premium New Zealand wines.
