Marylebone, London. NW1.
Sandwiched between Regent’s Park and Mayfair, Marylebone is a sought after area of London with several tourist attractions and stunning Georgian, Regency and Victorian properties.
Brief history of Marylebone
The area of Marylebone, after the dissolution of the monasteries, was acquired by Henry VIII who then turned the area into hunting grounds. This land later became Regent’s Park to the north with the southern area becoming an area for a small community by the banks of the Tyburn, a tributary of the River Westbourne.
St Mary’s-by-the-Bourne was the local church for the area, which later transformed into Marylebone. The area of Marylebone expanded rapidly during the late 18th century with buildings being erected becoming part of the city of London.
Marylebone – famous streets
Marylebone is an area of London famous for several streets synonymous with fictional characters, professions and for shopping.
The fictional detective Sherlock Holmes is synonymous with Baker Street with tourists visiting 221B Baker Street depicted in the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle books as his home with Doctor Watson.
221B Baker Street is a museum dedicated to the detective however is not located at 221 Baker Street as there is no such address as 221 Baker Street! In the fictional book it is said that Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson lived at 221B Baker Street from 1881 to 1904 however this address did not exist as the Baker Street numbers only stretched into the 100s – hence this was a fictional address. Later the buildings in Baker Street were renumbered to include 221B, which included the Abbey National Building Society. However the Abbey National Building Society was inundated with mail relating to Sherlock Holmes which at first they continued to receive until they vacated the premises with today what is in fact 239 Baker Street Sherlock Holmes Museum being known as 221B Baker Street after special permission from the City of Westminster granted this address.
The London Street synonymous with the medical profession is Harley Street, which in 1820 was laid out and part of a grid system of streets by the architect John Price. Harley Street takes its name from Edward Harley, Earl of Oxford who was married to Lady Henrietta Cavendish Holles who inherited the estate from her late father John Holles, the Duke of Newcastle. Harley Street runs parallel to Regent Street and is located from Marylebone Road to the north and Wigmore Street to the south. Harley Street is lined with elegant Georgian mansions, which are the practices of some of the world’s leading doctors, surgeons and healthcare practitioners.
From Florence Nightingale who worked in 1 Harley Street at a hospital for gentlewomen to the artist J.M.W Turner who once resided at 64 Harley Street the street has had some very notable people who have either lived or worked in Harley Street.
Wimpole Street running from Henrietta Place southwards to Weymouth Street northwards where it becomes Upper Wimpole Street is an elegant street with fine examples of Edwardian and Georgian architecture and a few luxury apartment blocks built in the 1950s and 1960s.
Wimpole Street was called a “long unlovely street” by Lord Tennyson in the poem he wrote Dark House however numerous people have found the street to be inspirational in regards to music, literature, plays and film. Wimpole Street was home to Elizabeth Barrett the Victorian poet prior to her elopement and later home to Beatle Paul McCartney who with John Lennon wrote songs together in the basement and attic of 57 Wimpole Street.
