- Farmers’ markets (throughout the year)
- Open Air Theatre
- Wigmore hall
- Sherlock Holmes and 221B Baker Street
The upmarket high street is full of boutique shops in a central location in the city: chocolate, shoes and designer clothing are highlights, with a colorful charm with something for everyone:
