Les 100 Ciels Neighbourhood: Marylebone

by Les 100 Ciels Team on April 18, 2018


Just north of our flagship store in St Christopher’s Place and south of Regents Park is the pretty and peaceful Marylebone neighbourhood, characterized by white stone buildings and family-owned patisseries.  Full of charm and intimacy with terraced Georgian and Edwardian townhouses, independent boutiques and trendy cafes and restaurants, this little pearl maintains a cosy village vibe, attracting visitors from all walks of life.

The backbone of the area is the bustling Marylebone High Street, where a casual stroll and window-shopping excursion will always lead to new discoveries. Spilling outwards from the high street are a number of smaller, trendy streets including Chiltern Street, an up and coming dining and shopping destination. If you like a vibrant and unique experience, read on and fall in love with our selection of the best Marylebone galleries, cafés and exhibitions!

Marylebone Farmers market

Every Sunday this stunning market attracts London’s foodies with a choice of more than 30 stalls. There’s always something new to find as the seasons change, from oysters for breakfast to excellent cuts of meat. For those who have time to explore a bit further, Marylebone Road will lead you to Alfie’s Antique Market on Church Street, where you can uncover some gorgeous items- and don’t miss its hidden terrace café, a peaceful respite on the top floor!

The Wallace collection

Housed at Hertford House, this free entry national museum comprises an extensive collection of French 18th century paintings, porcelain and furniture. The house alone is well worth a visit with opulent interiors across 30 rooms that are beautiful and perfectly frame the exhibitions. Complete this cultural journey with a delicious lunch at The Wallace restaurant, flooded with natural light, dotted trees and sculptures.

La Fromagerie

With 3 locations in central London and with possibly the best cheeseboard in the city, this shop’s popularity has only increased since 2002, with the opening of their Marylebone branch in Lambs Conduit street. Featuring a maturing cellar and a lovely restaurant, the shop also sells artisan bread, a charcuterie selection and fine wines. Pop in at lunch time (if you are lucky to find a seat) for some tasty fondue and a pleasant glass of wine!

Le Monocle café

This little café in Chiltern Street is a spin-off of the Monocle magazine and the place to pick up the latest issues of the magazine and bump into fellow Monocle readers. As well as delicious Allpress coffee, this café offers delicious Swedish pastries from Stockholm’s Fabrique bakery and well-presented cakes from Lanka, a Japanese-run patisserie.

Daunt books

This bookshop opened its doors back in 1912 in Marylebone, claiming to be the first custom-built bookshop in the world, and it is truly an experience not to be missed! As soon as you enter Daunt books an overwhelming feeling of calm and tranquillity pervades. Characterized by the original Edwardian style with long oak galleries, graceful skylights and books elegantly lining the walls, this independent bookshop is a haven for book lovers.
