As local property specialists, we love Marylebone and its surrounding area.
Marylebone has been an incredibly fashionable area in London since at least the seventeenth century as the catalogue of famous residents (past and present) attests.
Geographically, Marylebone is roughly bounded by Oxford Street to the south, Marylebone Road to the north, Edgware Road to the west and Great Portland Street to the east. A broader definition designates the historic area as Marylebone Village and encompasses neighbouring Regent’s Park, Baker Street and the area immediately north of Marylebone Road, containing Marylebone Station, the original site of the Marylebone Cricket Club at Dorset Square, and the neighbourhood known as Lisson Grove as far as the border with St John’s Wood. The area east of Great Portland Street up to Cleveland Street, known as Fitzrovia since the 1940s, is considered historically to be East Marylebone.
Marylebone gets its name from a church dedicated to St Mary, represented now by St Marylebone Parish Church (1817); the original church was built on the bank of a small stream or “bourne”, called the Tybourne or Tyburn. This stream rose further north in what is now Swiss Cottage, eventually running along what is now Marylebone Lane, which preserves its curve within the grid pattern. The church and the surrounding area later became known as St Mary at the Bourne which, over time, became shortened to its present form, Marylebone.
Marylebone is characterised by major streets on a grid pattern such as Gloucester Place, Baker Street, Marylebone High Street, Wimpole Street, Harley Street and Portland Place, with smaller mews between the major streets.
Marylebone is, of course, a world-famous shopping destination, but a quick look around the side streets reveal specialist shops and boutiques that sell everything from Stradivarius violins to plastic buttons. Like the shops, the best restaurants and cafes in Marylebone provide a range of products at a range of prices, and everything from a cup of tea to haute cuisine is executed with the same passion and expertise.
Not to be outdone, the Marylebone bars and pubs are stylish places to relax with superb cocktails and outstanding ales after a long day.
