A bite sized FREE museum just behind Selfridges department store and Marylebone high street. Wonderful High tea and lunch in their beautiful covered courtyard restaurant. Built as a private house so get 3 in one, house, museum and food. What’s not to like. London’s best kept secret.

A beautiful house full of 18th and 19th c. artwork. Entrance is free and they do excellent tours.

Behind Selfridges, a private house (fascinating in itself) with an extensive permanent collection of decorative French art and armoury. Free except for temporary exhibitions

One of my favourite museums in London. A small but wonderful formerly private collection of art, porcelain, furniture and armour in Hertford House. Open daily 10am-5pm. Admission free but you can pre-arrange a (paid) guided tour. Not on the main tourist circuit so usually quiet. Has a great café in…

“The Sherlock Holmes Museum is a privately run museum in London, England, dedicated to the famous fictional detective Sherlock Holmes. It is the world’s first museum dedicated to the literary character Sherlock Holmes. The best example of the living period costume I have come across! Absolutely everyone was in character! After giving the introduction, the butler was asked if Sherlock Holmes was real, and he kindly explained that the museum was there to help build the story. Brilliant experience and highly recommend!!”

Modern European Restaurant
“Have you ever wanted to hang out with all of the celebs and royals all at one time? Perhaps not, but here at Madame Tussauds you can do exactly that. It's weird but it works and is not to be missed.”

Cocktail Bar
“Purl is undoubtedly one of the best bars in Marylebone. It is one of the first ventures from the cocktail kings - Fluid Movement (Worship Street Whistling Shop and Dach & Sons) and has famously ground-breaking, unique cocktails. An absolute must for any discerning cocktail drinker.”
