Interesting area lined with shops

We walked down this street after visiting Abbey Road. It is lined with shops as well as the Sherlock Holmes Museum and the Beatles Store.

Baker Street in itself is about half a mile long, ok it's not that long. Situated at the north end is Regents Park, a park that will easily help you lose a few hours within it, then as you walk down, you're greeted by the Sherlock Holmes museum, which, although is numbered as 221B Baker Street; it isn't. Outside on... More

We visited Baker Street to pass by the famous house of Sherlock Holmes . The museum was not open as we were very early but took the opportunity to take photos at the Sherlock's door.

Walking down Baker Street it is clear that Sherlock Holmes is what is important. A large number of local business refer to him in their names. There is also a large statue near the Tube entrance. Further, the Sherlock Holmes Museum and Shop are on the straight at 221B Baker Street. The Museum can have quite a long line so... More

It's not another shopping street London's city centre,not at all. Better know for the Sherlock Holmes museum and Madame Tussaud's however it's a lovely street in the Marylebone area, one of the older areas in London. There are many restaurants in the area too. An excellent spot to meet up with friends. I prefer taking Baker Street between Regent's Park... More

We often leave the tube here. Station has a good little cafe where we had drinks. Area itself is close to many attractions and pleasant to explore.

Staying in Marylebone

Neighbourhood Profile
Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
