One of central London’s most affluent neighborhoods, Marylebone has a history dating back to the 17th century. Stretching north of Oxford Street to Regent’s Park, the village-like district is known for its Georgian architecture, fashion boutiques, and unique museums.
Home to some of London’s most luxurious hotels, Marylebone makes an atmospheric base for travelers, within strolling distance of Oxford Street shops. The neighborhood also has a number of popular tourist attractions. Madame Tussauds is the original wax museum; the nearby Sherlock Holmes Museum is located at 221B Baker Street, just like in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s books; and the Wallace Collection is a museum of art and antiquities housed in a gorgeous 18th-century residence.

Head to Marylebone in the day to shop or stroll through Regents Park, or in the evening to sip cocktails with the locals or dine at one of the many restaurants.

The price you see is the total cost. ............... Loads of FAB Beatles & London Rock'n Roll landmarks. Half Day London Tour (4 hours): 9.00 - 12.00pm start. Taxi tour with a very small amount of walking. ................. The title of this tour says it all, and we're not just restricted to the Beatles (this is London we're talking about). We’ll visit a certain well known recording studio (and zebra crossing) in Abbey Road as well as Marylebone marriages, film locations and blue plaques. Upmarket Mayfair and Marylebone are more rock’n roll than expected and seedy Soho more than lives up to its reputation. We may trip the edges of Covent Garden, nip into Kensington or dip into St James's for the biggest surprises of all. I never like to give too much away when writing about this tour (promised: you will get satisfaction). It spoils some of the secrets and reveals surprises best seen on the tour. All I can say is, London Calling...you'll wish you were here.
