STARTING YOUR JOURNEY OF DISCOVERY
Start off your morning as you mean to go on with a hearty breakfast al fresco at the hotel’s 108 on the Lane, before heading out for your adventure around Marylebone.
Begin with some retail therapy in nearby Chiltern Street.
Here you’ll find shops selling whisky, candles, woodwind instruments and bridal gowns as well as ladies and gentlemen’s tailors including English Cut, John Simons, Pauline Burrows and Trunk.
Then walk up Marylebone High Street, finishing in Marylebone Lane and its bespoke fashion and jewellery boutiques.
Make your way to the eccentrically-British Paul Rothe & Son for a light lunch, try one of their fresh soups or delicious sandwiches made daily, (keeping it light to allow for temptations later in the day).
Spend the afternoon exploring the glorious Wallace Collection and enjoy European art from the 17th to 19th centuries.
If you’re looking for a sweet treat with a side of fashion, head to Cabbages and Frocks – a small highend market for fashion and food found in the St Marylebone Parish Church grounds.
This church was where poets Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning secretly married and one of Charles Dickens’ children was baptised (as he and his family lived nearby where he wrote six of his most famous novels).
Freshen up for dinner and take a stroll to Trishna’s, three minutes from the hotel, renowned for its wonderful modern Indian cuisine.
Afterwards, retire for a nightcap in a cosy corner of The Marylebone’s newest bar opening, The Cocktail Bar (and already a hot spot with locals).
