Cobblestone chichi. Marylebone’s narrow stone streets are lined with gorgeous Georgian architecture and cute-as-can-be boutiques, galleries, and cafés. This has been a haunt of the well-heeled artsy set for centuries now, with famous former residents ranging from Charles Dickens to Yoko Ono and current ones including Noel Gallagher and Madonna. Shopping is centered on Marylebone High Street (shops range from couture label to quirky specialty boutiques), though there are some neat little treasures to be found on the side streets as well. With a no-chain-stores rule, Marylebone is one of the more original and unique sections of town.

WHY WE LIKE IT
It’s cute and atmospheric, with loads of yummy cafés and a great mix of nifty one-of-a-kind shops and designer standbys. A swell spot for a shopping day out–there’s more than enough to keep you going for a full day.
GOOD TO KNOW
Getting to Marylebone High Street from Bond Street Station is a breeze: it’s a ten-minute walk via pedestrian-only St Christopher's Place. If you want to branch out from High Street, aim for Chiltern Street–it’s a quiet side street chock-a-block with specialty women’s clothing boutiques. While in Marylebone, don’t miss Daunt Books (with an especially impressive travel books section), Matches (fashionable women’s wear), French Sole (for ladies’ flats), and La Fromagerie (for wine and cheese).
