About Marylebone

Marylebone is one of London's more affluent area's, it is home mostly to the well to do, and yet only a couple of centuries ago a large workhouse was built here to give shelter to the poor and homeless, often foundlings were discovered on the workhouse doorstep. The building opened in 1730, by the 19th-century it had become an infirmary hospital for the sick and poor, and to this day these buildings, which over the years provided sanctuary for thousands, survive as the St. Charles Hospital.

This is an area where visitors can find everything they are looking for, be it stylish shops, restaurants, bars, or smart cafe's. In St.Christopher's Place you will find a number of interesting boutiques, and if it high fashion you are searching for then head for Chiltern Street where you can find several designer showrooms.

The area is home to the Royal Academy of Music, several language school's, and is noted for Park Crescent which was designed by John Nash. It was around this time that the area began to get its reputation for music, quite possibly because amongst other illustrious person's the Prince Regent had a home here. The Prince had a reputation for lavish entertainment, and was noted for his fine musical evenings. Regents Park was borne out of the Prince Regent's desire to live in Marylebone. Visitors will find London's other 'green lungs' Hyde Park and Green Park within easy reach.


One of the most visited places in Marylebone is its outstanding cemetery. This burial ground was laid out during the mid 19th-century, it was sold later by Westminster Council for just a pittance. Fortunately they had the foresight to buy it back, for it holds some of the most beautiful graves, tombs and commemorative statues in the country. The 4.2 million pounds price tag to buy the burial ground back was a worthy investment, otherwise the country might have lost an important piece of social history.

Apart from great shops Marylebone has markets, a popular event being the Farmers Market held each Sunday in Cramer Street Car park, just off Marylebone High Street. This is London's largest Farmers Market, here you can buy fresh farm produce, and afterwards you can soak up Marylebone's unique urban village atmosphere.

This whole area has glamour, it bubbles with excitement and amongst its many fine building visitors will find accommodation ranging from elegant hotels to simple bed and breakfasts.
