Why do you find Marylebone a great place to live?
"Marylebone has developed into a very cosmopolitan central London area, which has a lovely village feel to it, despite being a stone's throw from Oxford Street. The high street is now populated with an eclectic mix of shops and restaurants, which are not the usual run of the mill high street names. On Sunday there even is a farmers market with local produce from just outside London. Despite being in the heart of London, the... more
"For me, Marylebone makes the heart of London feel like a countryside community. Having grown up in a rural part of the UK i thoroughly enjoy the bustling farmers market, extensive variety of shopping and delicious eateries. A classy area for all to enjoy!"

"At the turn of the nineteenth century, Montagu Square resident Robert Coates was the self-proclaimed finest actor of his generation. Financing his own productions, he often forgot his lines, repeated his favourite scenes 3 or 4 times in a performance and even made up entire new scenes to the bemusement of those around him."

Marylebone is an affluent, inner-city area of central London, located within the City of Westminster. It is sometimes written as St. Marylebone or Mary-le-bone. Marylebone is in an area of London that can be roughly defined as 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 to the border with St John's Wood. The west side of the Fitzrovia area up to Cleveland Street was also previously considered to be part of Marylebone. Today the area is mostly residential, with many medical and dental offices, traditionally concentrated in Harley Street. Since the opening of the Jubilee Line at Baker Street station (with its direct links to Canary Wharf), Marylebone â€” particularly Marylebone Village â€” has become an even more sought-after area of Central London.
