Marylebone Information Guide

The London Guide explores Marylebone, a neighbourhood bordered by Regent's Park, Portland Place, Oxford Street and Edgware Road to the north of central London.

Regents Park Overview

Situated in the northern most limit of central London, Marylebone is located next to the second largest of the capital's royal parks, Regents Park.

The area itself is home to a variety of smaller and more private museums, collections and exhibits including the Sherlock Holmes Museum and the Wallace Collection of fine arts.

The architecture in the area is diverse, ranging from truly opulent residences to spacious Georgian terraced housing and quiet mews properties.

The local area has strong transportation links to the rest of the capital, with prominent rail stations Marylebone, Paddington and Euston all close by.

Madame Tussauds London Local Sights

Nearby are Madame Tussaudís wax figure collection and the London Planetarium, containing exhibitions and shows about the mysteries of the solar system. The shops of Oxford Street in the West End are a short bus ride or tube ride away.

London Guide Hints & Tips

The Marylebone area is away from the rat race of central London, with Regents park offering a complete break from city life.

To avoid queues at Maryleboneís Madame Tussaudís get there early in the morning. Exhibitions are always changing depending which celebrities are hot at the moment. Visitors wishing to visit several other landmarks with admission fees may wish to invest in a London pass to make substantial savings.
