london walking maps #4: marylebone

Walking around Marylebone is like visiting London from the golden age of architecture, where Georgian villas nestle between grand Victorian and Edwardian townhouses. You can pop by the Monocle Café, and sit outside to admire the celebrity-haunted Neo-Gothic style of Chiltern Firehouse. Or perhaps you could stroll around Manchester Square, soaking in all the Rembrandts and Rubenses at The Wallace Collection. If you need to quench your thirst, The Grazing Goat on New Quebec Street is a good pit stop. Or wander down further to Seymour Place, where ladies in nice suit jackets seem to congregate in wine bars, alfresco style. There is something for everyone, from pizzerias to patisseries, high-end Spanish kitchens to little cafés. You would never feel peckish round here.
