Marylebone is an affluent inner-city area of central London, England, located within the City of Westminster. It is sometimes written as St. Marylebone .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.HistoryMarylebone 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. It is a common misunderstanding that the name is a corruption of Marie la Bonne (French for "Marie/Mary the good").

  • very nice atmosphere. easy to move around. have halal food. lots of establishment surrounding the area. 
  • Here are many fashionable shops, even in the European, very calm. And many grocery store, clothing store, super luxury, pub, cafe, restaurant, perfect for walking. Despite the backer street station to hotel very conveniently located in quiet day and night, this area is staying is the best. Eating well can be done in the vicinity. Projected Street, this apartment rents are so high a (like Tokyo Aoyama, daikanyama).

  • Very nice local pub - friendly staff and good atmosphere.
  • Very nice interior. Good for a pint or something more upscale if that's what you're looking for.
  • Nice cocktail bar at the corner street with an interesting menu of drinks. Don't miss their 2 for 1 cocktails! Time to get drunk *hic*
  • A little disappointing - only one lager and one cider on draft, and mid way though the evening the lager ran out. Minimum charge of £10 on cards even though it was contactless. mind you its hard to buy two drinks and pay less than £10. I'd generally avoid it - theres better bars around.
  • 2 for 1 drinks during happyhour. Good cocktails
