Marylebone High Street Review

A favorite of newspaper style sections everywhere, this street forms the heart of Marylebone (pronounced "Marr-le-bone") Village, a vibrant, upscale neighborhood that encompasses the squares and streets around the High Street and nearby Marylebone Lane. It's hard to believe that you're just a few blocks north of Oxford Street as you wander in and out of Marylebone's small shops and boutiques. Some noteworthy stops along the way are La Fromagerie (2–6 Moxon Street), one of London's best cheese shops; Daunt Books (Nos. 83–84), a travel bookshop; "Cabbages and Frocks" market on the grounds of the St. Marylebone Parish Church, held Saturday 11–5, which purveys specialty foods and vintage clothing; and on Sunday 10–2, a large farmers' and artisanal-food market in a parking lot on Cramer Street, just behind the High Street. Marylebone Lane has an unusual curved shape because it was built along the banks of the River Tyburn—which is now completely underground.
