Arrogant lazy utterly poor customer service experienced and despite apologies for unacceptable behaviour from head office I feel nothing s been done... More

After hearing of the difficulties of the high-street music retailer and the woes faced in the battle against online competitors, it was excellent to see HMV back in their rightful place at their original Oxford Street branch, opened in 1921. Smaller than their previous store, this place was still absolutely buzzing with people on one of the last shopping days... More

If you are a movie buff or a music lover, then HMV on Oxford Street is a dream come true. Probably one of the largest stores of its kind in Europe, the store also has plenty of games and audio accessories on two floors. I spent most of my time getting several DVDs, and they do have a great collection.... More

After a prolonged time in financial difficulties, the HMV chain is trying to regain profitability against the tide of downloads and file-streaming. One move was to relocate in Oxford Street to their heritage location, on number 363, where HMV started business in 1921. In fitting out the new shop, HMV tried to recapture the past, also with pictures at the... More

Staying in Marylebone

Neighborhood Profile
Marylebone
Marylebone offers what so many London neighborhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
