The apartment is tucked away in a beautiful 200-year-old residential street in upmarket Marylebone village. It’s a quiet, friendly and very safe area. This is the perfect combination of a pretty location, with history all around you, which is truly in the heart of central London.
There are food shops and supermarkets within a few minutes of the apartment, and numerous restaurants and cafe's to choose from. It's also just around the corner from Madame Tussauds and the Sherlock Holmes museum (at 221b Baker Street of course!).
Marylebone is a very special residential district which has an atmosphere all of its own. The reason is the beautiful Georgian architecture, 200+ years old, which makes the streets very attractive...and so very upmarket. Yet this lovely district is also within walking distance of most of the main tourist sites (see below) And if you're not a keen walker then there are two tube stations - Marylebone tube is just 3 minutes' walk away and Baker Street tube (a main 'hub' station) is just 4 minutes' walk. You can reach all the tourist sites easily from either of these tube stations and most are just within two or three stops.
