Discover Things to Do Near Our Marylebone Retreat

Peacefully set between the elegant green spaces of Hyde Park and Regents Park, Marylebone is an upscale enclave that offers serene sophistication in the heart of London. Mayfair, Westminster, and The City are all easy to reach from here, as are the renowned shopping, dining, and regal architecture of London’s iconic West End. Explore everything you’ll be able to enjoy while staying with us.

Where to Eat in London

Going to London and not having tea is like going to Paris and not seeing the Eiffel Tower. We recommend starting at sketch, located in a beautiful 18th-century building in Mayfair. Afternoon tea is offered in the restaurant’s signature pink dining room, surrounded by framed sketches by David Shrigley. Sample caviar, quail eggs, tea sandwiches, and macaroons as you sip sophisticated blends sourced from around the world. At night, the quirky tea room transforms into a restaurant and cocktail bar helmed by French master chef Pierre Gagnaire.

For other beverages, we recommend Mayfair’s Ralph’s Coffee & Bar, where dark wood paneling, green billiard cloth, and Ralph Lauren's trademark equestrian sensibilities create a sophisticated, country-club-like atmosphere. Enjoy coffee, cocktails, and shared plates at this quintessentially British establishment — we recommend stopping by the Polo Ralph Lauren flagship store on Regent Street beforehand if you want to upgrade your wardrobe first.

If you need more recommendations for your foodie tour, we suggest the modern European atmosphere of The Ivy Cafe Marylebone, the Art Deco glamour of The Wolseley, the market-fresh seafood at Scotts Mayfair, and the decadent Austrian elegance of Fischers Marylebone.

London Museums and Art Galleries

Located in a historic Marylebone townhouse, the 25 galleries of The Wallace Collection are home to one of Europe’s finest collections of paintings, furniture, arms, and armor. Surpassed only by those in the National Gallery, the paintings by Titian, Rubens, and Rembrandt make The Wallace Collection one of the best in England. Don’t miss the other fantastic London museums nearby, including the world-renowned British Museum in Bloomsbury.

Outdoor Activities in London

Take in the picture-perfect townhomes of the West End as you stroll to Regent’s Park or Hyde Park, where you can enjoy a picnic, take a rowboat out on the lake, and escape the bustle of the city. Tree-lined pathways, formal gardens, and London’s largest outdoor sports area are all within walking distance of AKA Marylebone. We also recommend heading up to the top of Primrose Hill for far-reaching views of the city skyline.
