Marylebone (sometimes written St. Marylebone or Mary-le-bone, or in archaic use Marybone) is an area of central London in the City of Westminster and located in postal district W1, Not to be confused with St. Mary-le-Bow in the City of London. Allen and Young Ltd regularly carry out all moving services including removals, man and van, storage, packing and house clearance in the Marylebone area.
Marylebone can be roughly defined as the area bounded by Oxford Street to the south, Marylebone Road to the north, Edgware Road to the west and Portland Place (or alternatively Great Portland Street) to the east. Occasionally, this area is designated as “Marylebone Village”. A broader definition of Marylebone is then used, which encompasses Regent’s Park 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, and since the opening of the Jubilee Line at Baker Street station (with its direct links to Canary Wharf), Marylebone – particularly Marylebone Village – has become a very sought-after area of Central London. It is also notable for the Arab population on its far western border around Edgware Road.
Marylebone gets its name from a church called “St Mary’s” (now known as St Marylebone Parish Church) which was built on the bank of a small stream or “bourne” called the Tybourne or Tyburn, which used to run along what is now Marylebone Lane (before it was built over). 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”). A large part of the area was constructed by the Portman family and is known as the Portman Estate. Another significant portion of the area, including Marylebone High Street, is the Howard de Walden Estate (see both here and here). Both estates have aristocratic antecedents and are still run by members of the aforementioned families.
The Metropolitan Borough of St Marylebone was a metropolitan borough of the County of London between 1899 and 1965, after which it was merged with the Metropolitan Borough of Paddington and the Metropolitan Borough of Westminster to form the City of Westminster. Such place names in the neighbourhood as Cavendish Square and Portland Place reflect the Dukes of Portland landholdings and Georgian-era developments there. Read more…
