Where is Harley Street?



Harley Street is located in the City of Westminster, right at the heart of London. It has always been very accessible; in addition to the nearby train stations of Paddington, Marylebone, Euston, Kings Cross and St Pancras, there are also copious numbers of tube stations in the vicinity, including Oxford Circus, Regents Park, Baker Street, Great Portland Street, and Warren Street. It is adjacent to the major thoroughfare Marylebone Road and parallel to Portland Place. Thus it can be easily reached by train, underground, car, foot, or any other conventional mode of transport. It is located in a well-known area, being just north of Oxford Street and just south of the expansive and alluring Regent’s Park, showcasing John Nash’s imaginative design, livened by open theatre and containing the world-famous London Zoo.

Places to stay

For the traveller it is ideal as there are numerous hotels, restaurants and of course shops nearby (most prominently stretched along the mile-and-a-half Oxford Street). Local hotels include Grange Langham Court and Regents Park Hotel. For something a little cheaper there is also the YHA. However there is also the Holiday Inn Oxford Circus Hotel, in an Edwardian terrace and full of luxuries. For that little bit extra it is possible to spend a few nights in real style here. Berners Hotel is similarly luxurious, and is closer to the theatre area than Oxford street, becoming a choice of particular taste.

Places to eat

For some of the best food in the area, Sketch, 2005’s 18th best restaurant in the world and holder of the 2007-08 AA Wine Award for England, is relatively nearby on 9 Conduit Street, Mayfair and presents Pierre Gagnaire’s celebrated ‘New French’ style. Other restaurants include No. 5 Cavendish Square, a beautiful converted Georgian building offering the highest quality in European food and fine wine, and Mash (19-21 Great Portland Street), serving international foods to a high standard. For something a little more down-to-earth there is the Prince Regent on Marylebone road, serving refined pub food and drink.

Other attractions of the area

As part of the West End there are plenty of other attractions for a visitor to Harley Street. Nearby are Madame Tussauds, Pollock’s Toy Museum and Daunt Books; a little further, beyond Marylebone Road are the Sherlock Holmes museum, the Beatles store and Abbey Road studios. Just to the south are Wigmore Hall and the Wallace Collection.
