Marylebone is a fashionable cosmopolitan area of London within the City of Westminster which is roughly north of Oxford Street and South of Regents Park (although some people will also include Regents Park, NW1 as part of Marylebone) and stretching from Edgware Road to the west, to Great Portland Street to the east. Popular with commuters, this lively area has easy access tube links to Canary Wharf and City plus trains from Marylebone station.

Marylebone has two sides: Marylebone and Marylebone Village.

The Marylebone area has a multi-cultural feel and is mainly residential with a Georgian property influence and impressive mansion blocks. In and around Harley Street medical and dental practises are known worldwide.

The Howard de Walden Estate owns, leases and manages the majority of the 92 acres (370,000 m2) of real estate in Marylebone which comprises the area from Marylebone High Street in the west to Robert Adam’s Portland Place in the east and from Wigmore Street in the south to Marylebone Road in the north. A large part of the Marylebone area directly to the west was constructed by the Portman family and is known as the Portman Estate. Both estates have aristocratic antecedents and are still run by members of these families.

Brief history of Marylebone

Around 1817 a church which was built on the bank of a small stream (called a bourne) was dedicated to St Mary. The church was later known as St Mary at the Bourne which has been shortened over the years to Marylebone.

At the end of the fifteenth century part of Tyburn Manor, which was owned by Henry VIII, was turned into a deer park and this later became Regents Park.
