Baker Street, in the heart of London’s Marylebone dates from the 18th Century. It was named after its original builder, William Baker, and offers gentlemen, and their Baker Street escorts an excellent location to visit all that the great city of London has to offer. It is a very important thoroughfare in London, starting at Regents Park and then, eventually, after it had changed its name to Orchard Street, intersects Oxford Street, the heart of London’s retail experience. It is also served by the Baker Street underground station which is one of the oldest subterranean stations in the world meaning that you and your Baker Street escort enjoy fabulous transport links.
It is not possible to discuss Baker Street without looking at its significance in British culture. Perhaps the most famous resident of Baker Street lived at number 221B, a Mr Sherlock Holmes, in fact a fictional detective authored by Si Arthur Conan Doyle. Devotees of Holmes make pilgrimages to visit Baker Street and this has also lead to a number of other famous fictional residents including Basil the Great Mouse Detective, Danger Mouse and Sexton Blake.
The cultural significance of Baker Street is not just exclusive to literature though. The Beatles opened the Apple Boutique at number 94 which was open for two years in the late 1960’s. A worldwide hit bearing the streets name was enjoyed by Gerry Rafferty in the late 1970’s and the street has also been referenced in songs by The Rolling Stones and Jethro Tull.
As well as its cultural identity, Baker Street also enjoys some great restaurants, meaning that you and your Baker Street escort will have so much to fill your time. Highly recommended is L’ulivo at number 194 Baker Street. This quaint Italian Bistro offers excellent rustic Italian food at an excellent price and with pavement dining when the weather is good, it makes an excellent choice. Close by is another establishment, Strada, that also serves excellent Italian food in perhaps a more contemporary and elegant style than L’ulivo but no less impressive.
If you are a fan of the cinema then a must visit is the Screen, one of very few independent cinemas left in the UK. It offers two intimate screens showing the latest blockbusters but perhaps much more interesting are their art house and short run movies that are often almost impossible to find in modern multiplexes.
As you can see, a date with a Baker Street escort puts you in one of the most interesting areas of the city of London.
