Just minutes away from Oxford Street but miles away in ambience, Marylebone is a surprising pocket of calm located in the very heart of London. Distinguished by leafy streets lined with stately period homes and stylish boutiques, it’s a true urban village complete with colourful local characters and a weekly farmers' market. Life centres on the busy high street, which positively brims with quaint cafes, unique independent stores and high end design retailers.
Marylebone’s property market reflects its aristocratic history. In the 18th century various wealthy families owned much of the area and their names still adorn some Marylebone streets and squares, including Cavendish Square and Portman Square.
