"In 1814, a rumour circulated of a young rich heiress with a human body and a head of a pig, who lived near Manchester Square. The papers soon stoked up the rumour as a ruse, and soon they were inundated with requests from male suitors to meet her. One even attempted to place an advert in the Times offering a proposal of marriage!"

With so many upmarket designers and eateries along Marylebone High Street, you're spoilt for choice!

About Baker Street

Baker Street is a street in the Marylebone district of the City of Westminster in London. It forms part of the A41. It is most famous for its connection to the fictional detective Sherlock Holmes, who lived at 221B Baker Street, an address that did not actually exist in Sherlock Holmes' era (the address now graces a building housing a "Sherlock Holmes museum"). The street is named after builder William Baker who laid the street out in the eighteenth century. It was originally a high class residential address, but now is mainly occupied by commercial premises. The street is served by the London Underground by Baker Street tube station; next to the station is Transport for London's lost property office. Baker Street Station is one of the world's oldest surviving underground stations.
