Are there any villages left in Central London? If you think not, then you haven’t meandered through Marylebone. It’s got that charming village feel plus it’s seconds from shoppers’ Oxford Street and theatre-goers’ Soho. Our hotels near Marylebone are the perfect launch pad for all three. After you’ve endured a few crowds, maybe Marylebone’s the place to have a quiet drink at a small pub hidden down a cobbled lane? or maybe it’s time for some art appreciation at Trip Advisor’s top ranked but off-the-tourist-track gallery.
Book hotels in Marylebone
Book a hotel near Marylebone, and you’ll be a short walk from many of the top theatres in the West End. If you don’t actually spot any stars on the streets (it happens often), then prepare your double-takes for the celebrity wax replicas at Madame Tussauds, just half a mile from our London Central Marylebone hotel. Less than a 20 minute walk from the hotel, the Wallace Collection’s also worth a look. Housed in a beautiful home built in 1776, the gallery’s owned by one family, and the pieces have been collected over five generations. You’ll find many of the great masters plus pottery, ceramics, sculptures and armoury (including a place where your chiildren can try on the armour).
Things to do in Marylebone
Now, for something quintessentially English, take a short half-mile walk from our London Central Marylebone Hotel to Lords Cricket Ground. It’s the birthplace of the sport, and a tour is a must for anyone who wants to understand the history of British sport we invented but still haven’t perfected. Just 1.6 miles in the opposite direction from our Marylebone hotel, you’ll experience national pride in a completely different manner at The National Gallery. It’s home to one of the greatest collections of Western European art. Secret tip: the cafe at the top has great views of London.
