Short let apartments - Marylebone
Marylebone, the area defined roughly by Oxford Street in the south and Euston and Marylebone Roads in
the north, is a curious mixture of Edwardian proportions, commercial enterprise, apartment living and discreet stylishness. At the western edge is Marylebone High Street, which somewhat to the dismay of its loyal inhabitants, has in recent years become one of London's premier gastronomic destinations, with a supporting cast of high-quality shops and design stores.
Not far in distance but worlds away from the tourist traps of Madame Tussaud's is Chiltern Street, a little-known thoroughfare with a quirky collection of fine shops. Farther north is Church Street and Alfie's antiques market, home to a host of antique dealers well off the beaten track.
Lovers of classical music will be pleased to have on their doorstep, the prestige-laden Wigmore Hall which stages around 400 recitals a year and acts as a performance platform for the world's most sought-after soloists and chamber musicians.
