Throughout England, if you’re on a High Street, then you’re probably on the main shopping drag of the neighborhood. Not all high streets are, however, created equal. Without a doubt, Maryleborne High Street tops them all.
First of all, Marlyeborne High Street is not overrun with tourists and chain stores. Instead, it’s a charming major street that shoots off of Oxford Circus, a street often spilling over with crowds. Do your gift shopping on Oxford Circus and peek into its many well-known and reputable chain stores, but step onto Marlyeborne High Street to linger and meander in and out of shops with character. You’ll find independent book stores, gourmet, organic grocery stores and cafes, European boutiques and the occasional farmer’s market and craft fair. As someone who dislikes crowds, I’m always searching for that uncrowded, unspoiled patch of London whenever I’m in town. I found it on Marleyborne High Street.
