Seems like a lifetime ago when I one winter I ‘did lunch’ in Marylebone. We had a fabulous time, in spite of the bleak weather the are was glitzy and felt a bit indulgent. I LIKE THAT! These days its rear for me to get out and about without the kids but when I do I try do it style. I’m pleased to share with this guest post on A Girls Day Out In Marylebone, by Alex Price, Editor of Marylebone London. Be inspired to get out there and have FUN!
Girls’ Day Out In Marylebone
Marylebone is arguably one of London’s most self-indulgent areas – it oozes luxury and elegance on every street corner. With Marylebone High Street at the very centre and the surrounding Marylebone Village to explore, where could be better for that girls day out? Leave the kids at home, send the husband off to the golf course and have a look through a few ideas for girl-time well spent in Marylebone!
Don’t feel guilty – it’s been a stressful week! What better way to kick off the day with a quick visit to the award winning Rococo Chocolates. Tucked away in Marylebone’s foodie corner of Moxon Street, Rococo Chocolates offers some of the finest chocolate you’ll find. From chocolate bars to wafer thins to pralines & chocolates – Rococo Chocolates will please any sweet tooth.
Time for lunch?
The Providores & Tapa Room on Marylebone High Street is the perfect spot for a light and easily shareable meal. New Zealander chef Peter Gordon’s restaurant offers a range of innovative and eclectic fusion food options. It really will be a unique lunch and the accompanying wine list of some hard to find New Zealand wines will only add to the quality of your meal!
You’ve pleased the chocoholic of the group, now it’s time to sort out the alcoholic! Literally a stones throw from Rococo Chocolates is The Marylebone on Marylebone High Street. This cocktail bar looks much like a pub from the outside and although the beer taps flow freely, the cocktails are the real draw! The modern cocktails are made using some truly unique in-house infusions – if you’re not feeling relaxed after a few of these, there’s something wrong!
Peace & Tranquillity!
End your Marylebone day out with a spa session – The Landmark Spa & Health Club at The Landmark Hotel will be sure to take care of all of your relaxation requirements. The luxury spa has facilities including a swimming pool, showers, steam rooms, a relaxation room and a gym (although after the chocolates and cocktails this wouldn’t be recommended!). Choose from a range of treatments to please both your body and your mind – the perfect end to an already perfect day out!
