Sunny Sunday in London Marylebone

Dear diary, I’m back to London again in this October. It’s Autumn now but on Sunday the weather was so nice I need to get some walks under the sun. Marylebone High Street and its neighbourhood streets was a perfect place to wander around, as they are home for nice cafes, lovely furniture shops, one of world’s most beautiful bookstores, and quality fashion stores you won’t see in ordinary shopping streets.

1. Daunt Books
Marylebone High St, London

Bookshop heaven. Undoubtedly one of London’s most treasured, independent bookstores. Daunt Books is housed in an Edwardian building with long oak galleries, streams of natural light bursting through a large, pitched glass roof and William Morris prints. Their travel section is one of the best kind in London.

5. The Conran Shop
55 Marylebone High St, London

Bright, airy, and fresh. The Flagship contemporary furnishings store showcasing design classics, one-off vintage items and gifts. It is definitely a great place to visit for a browse to shop for the home.

7. Margaret Howell 
34 Wigmore Street, London

Margaret Howell is one of those up-market, strictly non-bling, timeless designers I look up to. This light and bright shop is the perfect setting to house Margaret Howells casual, chic and unfussy collection – quite Parisian in style. As well as being her flagship store, the building is also home to the Margaret Howell studio. Alongside her clothing, the shop has been furnished with pieces of furniture and homeward. Also there are books, ceramics, and some beautifully crafted household objects. Should definitely give a visit and look around.

Also love this fake crocodile and a no-swimming sign from Lacoste Shop. lol.

So the next time you come to London, Marylebone , just 12-minute walk from Selfridges, might be an alternative street to take a deep breathe, sit down in some cafes, then go shop and walk around rather than being dull in the crowd of Oxford Street. Then tell me how nicer it is to slow down your pace 🙂
