It's time to explore Portman Marylebone and discover the “It” crowd who brought it to life over the centuries : this 1.5 hour walk (plus coffee break at Chiltern Street's Monocle Cafe, so leave 2 hours) through the neighbourhood streets takes in music, fashion and art against a backdrop of fine 18th and 19th-century houses, elegant garden squares, huge churches and mews, and cute independent shopping streets.
Each walk will take you past the homes of two Beatles and a Seventies rock legend, an extraordinary art gallery whose works never leave London and which has portraits of The "It" crowd of the 18th and 19th centuries, and the shadowy, glamorous world of London espionage. Imagine the energy and creativity of the East End transported to the nearest thing you can get to West End village.
All ticket sales will be donated to City Harvest. City Harvest, the charity partner of The Portman Estate putting surplus food to good use in a sustainable way. While thousands of Londoners go hungry each day, safe, healthy and usable food is being disposed of. City Harvest collects this nutritious surplus food from all segments of the food industry including restaurants, grocers, manufacturers, wholesalers, hotels and caterers.
Guests are also welcomed to The Grazing Goat on New Quebec Street 20% off food at the conclusion of the walk. Tickets must be pre-booked with track and trace details and all participants are asked to bring a mask and observe safe distancing. We also suggest that anyone booking transport from outside London to leave it as late as possible in case the Government advice changes.
