    A fascinating exhibition this revealing the unexpected connections between the magical Walt Disney cartoons and the magical Rococo art of the French eighteenth century. A room is dedicated to studies of Loire valley chateaux for the castle in Beauty and the Beast; another to how Fragonard’s The Swing inspired scenes in Tangled and Frozen as well. An exhilarating lesson in how some of Disney’s most memorable scenes such as the individual frames from Cinderella being transformed into the dress of a princess amidst some of the treasures from the Wallace Collection itself including Sevres porcelain and an anthropomorphic sofa.

    A quirky little museum dedicated to Sherlock.
    A little over pricey for what you get and the gift shop is worth a look but again too pricey! Staff were extremely pleasant and it's worth a hour.

    It’s the famous road where in the 221b Sherlock Holmes supposedly was living. The place has been converted to museum and is full of tourists every day. Baker Street is also very very close to Madame Tussauds museum.

    Excellent, we ate very well. Go there, for sure you will not be disappointed !
    The service is also excellent. We had dinner on a Saturday evening with 8 friends and had little time, they served us very quickly. Back in France a few days later, we realized an error on the bill : a dish overcharged. They immediately refunded us by bank transfer. Very efficient customer service, thank you Katherine. We will return for sure !

    This is such a lovely neighborhood. Great for shopping, great food, people watching, chilling. Of all the areas I've stayed in around London, this is the one that feels more like a neighborhood. LOVE Paddington Street Garden for relaxing, reading, snacking, people and dog watching, and playing life-size chess. Also love shops/cafes like the Fromagerie and sitting at an outside table at Il Baretto.

    Absolutely love this place. I never appreciated how beautiful classical music was until I started coming here. Having said this, I have watched choirs and various other forms of music here. The venue is intimate and beautiful. Easy to see the schedule online and book tickets. You can also book way in advance too. Most concerts are approximately 2 hours in duration with a twenty minute (plus or minus) interval. Some concerts are 1 hour without interval. When you view and book the concert online, it will tell you the duration. Tickets are reasonably priced and vary in amount depending on where you sit. Some concerts have special offers for younger people so do check this. The hall and whole building are well kept and clean. You cannot eat or drink inside the concert hall which I think is a good thing! Have a bite to eat or drink prior to coming or during the interval. There is a restaurant / bar downstairs on the premises. You cannot photograph or video concerts. The seats are fine, not the most comfortable and if you have long legs then you may struggle but they are fine generally. Nothing wrong. If you do have long legs, get an isle seat. Arrive on time or early. The hall opens thirty minutes before the performance. If you are late, you have to wait for a break in the concert, before you are allowed in. Concerts start punctually. You can download and show your ticket on your phone (no need to print) or collect it at the box office. What is also nice, is the small programme the staff provide before each concert giving a brief outline of the concert, the music and the history of how the piece was composed which is always very interesting. If the concert includes vocals, then the programme will also include the verses so you can follow this as well. The programme is free and the staff will give this to you as you enter. I cannot recommend coming enough. I go at least once a week when I am in London and look forward to the concerts each time.

    This beautiful church is squished in, but a revelation. I was almost the only visitor on a Friday afternoon. It’s a wonderful retreat from the hedonism of Marylebone to reflect.

    We were having an afternoon of wandering around London and decided to go on a tube to Marble Arch as we had not seen this. You can literally get off the tube and you can see it and take your photos. Hyde Park is next to it. Oxford Street is about 20 mins walk away so we just wandered to there for a look around.

    Finally visited today arriving by train from Stratford-Upon-Avon.
    An unassuming station that serves West of London & Birmingham.
    Nice and uncrossed, efficient station.

    The Marylebone Farmers market seems like it is held too infrequently! Lots of nice food stalls. Plenty to choose from. Worth a stop by and with a public park just next door to sit down and eat food.

    The Vic is still one of the premier poker lounges in the UK. The main issue over the years has been understaffing, which is now acute. While the night-time table service can be insufferably slow, this is a problem in almost every casino, not unique to the Vic.

    In recent times, the pit on level one has been "reformed", not necessarily for the better, with my favourite pit game, Caribbean Stud, having been removed.

    Most of the staff are professional and courteous (perhaps with the odd exception but I am not wont to name names personally on here).

    Experience is very good and all of the staff from the front desk to the bar staff, the only issue I had was the roulette tables only having chips at £5 which is very extreme especially in the current climate. If you could change this back to £1 or £2 tables I would have spent the night. I understand the machines have this capability, however I do come for the experience as machines are everywhere. Just a suggestion

    We rounded the corner and found this lovely museum. Very well up kept and some interesting pieces including Rembrandt and armor of the 16th-17th Century. There is a lovely lunch area under a solarium ... also we heard some of the very knowledgeable curators educating visitors and it was fascinating.

    There are two separate gallery spaces close to each other, one in Bell Street, the other in Lisson Street. The focus is entirely on contemporary artists, 62 of whom are currently supported through these London galleries and their sister locations in New York and Shanghai. I saw the exhibition by Spencer Finch at the Lisson Street location, which I enjoyed but not quite as much as I loved the gallery space itself. This is a series of rooms on the ground floor and upstairs, all painted pristine white and flooded with natural light. These galleries are off the beaten track in the under privileged part of Marylebone, but well worth finding. Admission is free.

    Hidden away in the Marylebone area of London, the Gardens are slighly strange as they are split in two across Paddington Street. It does mean that they have different characters, the north being quieter and more reflective, the south more active, vibrant and colourful with flowers.

    Originally burial grounds in the 18th century, they became gardens in 1885 and were officially opened by Princess Louise, Duchess of Argyle and a daughter of Queen Victoria, in 1886.

    Most of the monuments were cleared, but a few survive, and there is a new 1940's statue of a street orderly boy.

    A nice touch, which I have not seen anywhere else, is a description of the different roses. There is also a play area and pavilions for shelter in rainy weather.
