Marylebone Area Guide

Area overview

Marylebone is a highly-desirable area in central London. Thriving and affluent, it boasts a fabulous range of exclusive shops and eateries. Moments from Regent’s Park, it offers those looking to buy or rent a property in Marylebone a high quality ‘village’ life, coupled with the convenience of living in the heart of central London.

Surrounded by Regent’s Park, Portland Place, Oxford Street and Edgware Road, Marylebone is steeped in tradition. The Howard de Walden and Portman Estates are primarily responsible for creating this desirable area with many fine examples of London property including elegant Georgian town houses and impressive garden squares. Both the great estates have substantially invested in improving the area. The Howard de Walden Estate has very successfully promoted Marylebone Village as a destination for shopping, dining and the arts, and the Portman Estate is doing the same with Portman Village. Other popular areas within Marylebone include Montagu Square, Bryanston Square, Baker Street, Portman Square and Marble Arch.

According to Paul Sellar of Marylebone estate agents, Manors, “When it comes to public transport, Marylebone is extremely well connected, courtesy of Marylebone Railway Station, along with Marble Arch and Baker Street Underground stations and a myriad of bus routes. And, given its central location, it’s also possible to reach many parts of central London on foot."

In the last few years, the area has become increasingly popular with City workers, thanks to excellent direct commuting links to the City and, more recently, to Canary Wharf via the Jubilee line. And of course the area is eternally popular with the medical fraternity, with a proliferation of specialist consultants, private clinics and leading dental practitioners along Harley Street and Wimpole Street.

Marylebone’s close proximity to London’s West End, with its 24-hour party atmosphere, also contributes to its appeal.

So, whether you’re looking for flats for sale in Marylebone or trying to find one of the elusive houses for sale in W1 - or alternatively if you’re interested in flats to rent in Marylebone, it’s a great base for taking advantage of all that London has to offer.
