Like collecting art and antique? Make time for Antiques Anonymous at Marylebone’s Church Street on 24th June. The antique market makes a return the second time round, promising yet again to bring you an exceptional and vast collection of antiques. The best antique traders from across the UK will congregate to display unique items spanning a broad spectrum of prices. Food, live music and pop-up shops will be part of the extravaganza, which has previously attracted celebrities and thousands of vintage collectors.
An all-day café just opened on 23 James Street, a brainchild of Gordon Ramsay protégé chef Zahra Khan, and popular Instagrammer and cookbook author Virpi Mikkonen (@Vanelja). The artisanal menu will feature handmade tarts, cakes and pastries as well as a breakfast menu of avocado on toast and smoothies. Guests can also sip on Ozone coffee and Kusmi tea. Healthy lattes, dairy-free, vegan, and vegetarian options are all part of the menu. If you’ve just started to rent in Marylebone and plan to shop at Selfridges, try Feya, located around the corner from the department store.
Looking to explore the oldest independent shops in the area? High Street is scattered with gems, such as Daunt Books that looks stuck in a different era (a good thing!) and New Cavendish Jewellers, a veteran institution and authorised agent for luxury Swiss watches encompassing brands such as Audemars Piguet, Cartier, Blancpain, Breguet and IWC.
Have fashion on your mind? Sandro, Matches Fashion, LK Bennett and Comptoir des Cotonniers have a presence here. If you need an energy boost from all that shopping, head to High Street haute chocolaterie Pierre Marcolini, whose signature chocolates, éclairs and macaroons soothe the soul!
Marylebone’s period charm, village-like feel and trendy stores continue beckoning investors, buyers and renters to this inner-city neighbourhood. If you had to pick three affluent, desirable areas in central London, we suspect Marylebone would make it to your list. Though average sold prices in Marylebone have surpassed Westminster’s, it is still a value buy compared to the rest of prime central London. Even as the area’s growth trajectory remains strong, it continues delivering excellent value, feels our estate agent Marylebone.
Greater London Properties have plenty of residential properties to rent or buy in Marylebone so please give us a call today on 0207 113 1066 and we can organise viewings at your own convenience, else pop into our West End Branch.
