All with a pot of tea, and a glass of champagne should that be your fancy. Bank holidays give you that extra day of indulgence. Go ahead and book in for an afternoon tea experience in our luscious leather banquets before exploring the best of London town at our doorstep.
3. Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre
Timothy Sheader's reinterpretation of the classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical is running to 25 September and features classic numbers such as "If I Loved You" and "You'll Never Walk Alone". It is no surprise that Carousel was Richard Rodgers’ favourite of all his collaborations with Oscar Hammerstein. The Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre interpretation is one not to be missed. “Oustanding” according to The Times, this show is an adventurous, beguiling, resonant reinvention.
4. Marylebone Farmer’s Market
Marylebone is one of London’s flagship farmers' markets, taking place every Sunday from 10am to 2pm, on Cramer Street, tucked away just behind Marylebone High Street. This popular market has put Marylebone on the map as a top food destination for those looking for fresh, organic, delicious produce. There are 30-40 stalls each week, selling a wide range of produce including fish, meat, bread, vegetables, chutneys and preserves, fresh juice, cheese, freshly shucked oysters and much more. There’s always something new to find as the seasons change, from the freshest asparagus in April to cherries in July. Try oysters for breakfast from Norfolk based Longshore, or a mushroom sandwich from The Mushroom Table. Look out for excellent meat and poultry, game in season and free range sausages.
5. Old Marylebone Walking Tour
“London specialises in hiding the best of itself…” Old Marylebone’s a case in point. Here you’ll lose your way and find your heart. Get gratifyingly lost and get London back the way it was. The way it was at the time of the American Revolution. The way it was just after the Napoleonic Wars – for this is Regency London at its best. The way it was for Robert Browning and Elizabeth Barrett – we’ll see the old church where they were married. What else? Well, this one’s fascinating because it’s so unexpected – a quirky old village in the heart of the West End.
Every Saturday (meeting at Bond Street tube station) from 2pm - 4pm
