Famed as the home of Arthur Conan’s fictional detective Sherlock Holmes, Marylebone has a rich cultural and historic past. Sandwiched between Hyde Park and Regent’s Park, this Zone 1 hotspot has long been one of Central London’s most upmarket and fashionable districts.
From Charles Dickens to John Lennon, many high-profile figures have called Marylebone home. The charms of the area continue to lure celebrities and city professionals alike, with its premium homes comprising a mix of Georgian architecture and newer apartment and mews developments.
Marylebone Village is now firmly established as one of London’s most attractive shopping destinations. Centred on Marylebone High Street and Marylebone Lane, ‘The Village’ is where locals and tourists come together to enjoy the relaxed vibe, delis, cafés and boutiques.
There are plenty of schools in the local area, including The ICS London, St Vincent’s, St George’s Hanover Square, Hampden Gurney, the King Soloman Academy, Westminster Academy, Portland Place, St Marylebone, Abercorn, Wetherby, Francis Holland and the Sylvia Young Theatre School.
Transport-wise, Marylebone, Baker Street and Edgware Road Underground stations serve the area, providing access to the Bakerloo, Jubilee, Metropolitan, Circle and Hammersmith & City lines. Overland trains from Marylebone Station connect travellers with the Chilterns and Birmingham.
