Marylebone: chic village-like area, ideal for busy couples!
The presence of international schools such as EIFA and its proximity to St. Pancras International train station make it particularly attractive to the international community.
In central London, the area revolves around Marylebone High Street. It is composed of a mixture of stately secured buildings and pedestrian streets lined both sides of the famous “mews” so typical.
One can feel the village atmosphere of the neighbourhood despite its proximity of Oxford Street, the largest shopping street in London. Small local stores contribute to the beauty and atmosphere of the area and they organize twice-yearly events in the High Street: “Christmas lights“, “Marylebone Summer Fayre” and of course the farmers’ market on Sunday …
A Marylebone fact that deserves to be known: two families share more than half of the properties in the neighbourhood: the Howards from Walden and the Portmans!
