Marylebone is one of the most affluent parts of London, and this becomes apparent as you walk through the area’s streets and admire the red brick buildings, the grand churches, and of course the beautiful green spaces such as Regent’s Park. The City of London is similarly affluent, but with less residential appeal. As the financial heartland of London, the City attracts financial workers from all around the world who wish to carve out a career for themselves in London’s banking and finance sectors.
As central locations in London, both Marylebone and the City are full of transport links, making them an ideal area for office space in Marylebone and for City of London serviced offices. Marylebone station is connected to underground lines as well as mainline trains, but Marylebone is also in close proximity to other train stations such as Baker Street, Bond Street, and Edgware Road. Most people working in the city alight from their train at Liverpool Street station – again, this station is connected to a series of Underground lines as well as mainline routes, connecting commuters from both inside and outside of the city. The City also has a comprehensive bus network, connecting commuters to destinations right across the capital.
The City of London is predominantly home to the city’s employees who work in the financial and banking sector. Home to all of the major banks, the City also plays host to those organisations who might need to deal with the financial sector, such as financial procurement consultancies. With proximity to Westminster, Marylebone is an ideal location for political organisations, think tanks, and charities who might need to deal with government bodies.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the affluent areas of Marylebone and the City of London provide ample opportunity for unforgettable wining and dining experiences. A little more surprisingly, there is a healthy selection of budget (and brilliant!) dining options in Marylebone so that a spectacular night out with the team doesn’t have to break the bank. Marylebone’s Ping Pong branch provides a comfortable atmosphere in which you can enjoy some tasty dim sum treats while having one, two or maybe three Asian inspired cocktails – delicious! And of course, Marylebone has its fair share of upmarket eateries too. Treat your team to a one of a kind meal at pop-up restaurant Roganic, and your team will be putty in your hands. As a result of the huge number of people working in the City, there is also a diverse selection of places to eat and drink in this area, just expect upmarket prices for the finance crowd.
