Part 1 of my London Hidden Villages blogs. The capital of the UK is always basking in the limelight of its many tourist attractions – Big Ben, the London Eye, Piccadilly Circus and the amazing shows of the West End. But there are many beautiful, hidden places tucked away from the central hustle and bustle that are also well worth a visit to see how the locals really live! Each location is broken up into 4 sections: where to shop, where to eat, property and transport.
Sandro, 6 Marylebone Highstreet http://us.sandro-paris.com/
Matches, 87 Marylebone Highstreet – where you have many designers under one roof. http://www.matchesfashion.com/
Moxon street just off the highstreet is home to many local produce shops including the Ginger Pig butchers at number 8-10 where you will always find a queue at lunchtime! http://www.thegingerpig.co.uk/
And of course Le Fromargerie at 2-6 Moxon Street selling the best cheeses! Moxon street is also where you will find the popular Sunday farmers markets. For groceries there is a Little Waitrose as well as a Tesco Express. http://www.lafromagerie.co.uk/
Other great restaurant options include Carluccios on Paddington Street and Aubaine on Moxon Street which is great for an evening meal or an afternoon selection of cakes!
