This is an incredible collection of history. Art, Armoury, China collections etc. I had heard it was a must see but never imagined it was going to be so good. Outstanding visit.

Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as
pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The
bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it

It is fairly large and the size of the crowds does not seem to be a problem at any time.
