Marylebone

This swanky London neighborhood feels uncrowded despite its central location.

Rich, red windowpanes contrast against regal, white stone buildings in Marylebone. Intimate bookstores, family-owned patisseries, and high-end boutiques help the neighborhood maintain a cozy village vibe, despite its central London location. Cricket players outnumber cobblers in this ritzy neighborhood, and with its very own green space, (not to mention Hyde Park is just a neighborhood away), there’s plenty of room for friendly competitions.
