It is an inner-city area in central London and a part of the City of Westminster. It is in the centre of the region and it’s postcode districts are W1 and NW1. It is boarded by St. John’s Wood in the north, Fitzrovia in the east, Mayfair in the south and Paddington in the west, with Lisson Grove, Regent’s Park, Soho and Hyde Park also close by. The district was known as the Metropolitan Borough of St. Marylebone between the periods of 1899 to 1965 but later merged with the Paddington and Westminster Borough to create the City of Westminster.
It is one of the oldest parts of London and was originally a village. It is named for a church dedicated to St Mary, which later became the St. Marylebone Parish Church in 1817. In 1086, Tyburn Manor is listed in the Domesday Book as belonging to Barking Abbey. The possession of the area changed hands several times, from Robert de Verre to Thomas Hobson and later Henry VIII and it would remain under ownership of the crown for many years. Much of Marylebone was constructed under the Portman family who still run some of the estates today. In the 18th century is became a rowdy area where duels, boxing and even bear-baiting occurred regularly in Marylebone Fields.
These days the area is home to medical and dental practises, mostly around Harley Street. Some of the most attractive and expensive buildings in all of London can be found in Mansfield Street. The Austro-Hungarian embassy was situated Chandos Street and the mansion in Manchester Square is home to an attractive garden that homes some of the finest examples of 18th Century French art as a part of the renowned Wallace Collection. The area has a significant connection with legendary detective Sherlock Holmes, with his fictional address of 221B Baker Street being in Marylebone. The strong transport links in the area allow for Marylebone to be connected with all of London.
There have been dozens of notable figures to have lived in Marylebone and a brief list include authors Charles Dickens, Arthur Conan Doyle and H. Wells, musicians such as the Beatles, Adam Ant, Jimi Hendrix, Noel Gallagher and Jacqueline du Pré, as well as actors including Norman Wisdom and Barbara Winsor.
