Updated: May 30

Start at Bond Street Station

Finish at Bond Street Station



THE EXPERIENCE

A hidden network of pretty streets for food lovers, shoppers, and explorers just north of Oxford Street.

This delightfully hidden route is tucked away just north of Oxford Street’s Bond Street Station and offers plenty of places to eat, drink and be merry.

You enter St Christopher’s Place by James Street, which has many eating and drinking venues, and then head off to the Wallace Collection in Manchester Square, close to the start of Marylebone High Street.  This route has a lovely ‘London village’ feel, which you can experience on the return path along Marylebone Lane (with all its fine eating and drinking venues), Wigmore Street, and St Christopher’s Place before emerging back onto Oxford Street by Bond Street Station.


The route is excellent for atmosphere, history, iconic sights, crowds, shops, cinemas, museums, a village feel, a narrow street, and many places to eat, drink and be merry.
