Marylebone: Living in the heart of London

Background

Situated in the heart of the City of Westminster, Marylebone is an area of London that many people would like to live in.

It has an W1 postcode and is close to a number of places people love to visit when they head to England's capital, such as Regent's Park, Notting Hill and Marble Arch.

Marylebone's name derives from a church called St Mary's (it is called St Marylebone Parish Church today) which was built on the side of a stream, or bourne, called the Tybourne.

The area can boast something of a literary history in that the great novelist Charles Dickens used to live there and Lord Byron was baptised in Marylebone Chapel.

Property

Those looking for flats to rent in Marylebone can expect to pay around £1,569 a month for a studio and £2,271 for a one-bedroom residence. Two and three-bedroom property to rent in Marylebone is likely to cost the tenant close to £3,484 and £6,639 each month respectively.

Of course, these are average rental prices, and there is the possibility to find a bargain - just like there is anywhere else in London.

There are a number of Letting and Estate Agents in Marylebone that will be happy to deal with any property request from someone looking to live in the area.

Transport

When the name "Marylebone" is mentioned, one of the things that immediately springs to mind is the station situated in the area.

It is one of the main London rail hubs, allowing customers to head out of the city on the Chiltern Railways-run service. Train travellers can reach Birmingham and other parts of the West Midlands in just over two hours.

Marylebone is found in the London Underground's Travelcard Zone 1 on the Bakerloo Line, which runs from Elephant & Castle in South London to Wealdstone in the north-west of the city.

Various buses depart from outside the station entrance - numbers 2, 18, 27, 205, 453 and N18 - giving passengers the chance to reach Central London in hardly any time at all, as well as most other parts of the capital.

Amenities

The Royal Academy of Music is based in Marylebone, offering up-and-coming musicians the chance to train in the profession. It has been part of the region's landscape since the early 19th century.

Royal parks are in easy walking distance from the station, giving residents of property to rent in Marylebone the opportunity to relax and unwind despite being in the centre of one of the busiest cities in the world.

Sports and leisure centres are aplenty, and there are a number of regular markets allowing people living in the area to stock up on a wide selection of fresh produce.

Fish restaurant Seaport, found in Seymour Place, is recommended by the Marylebone Association - as is the Italian eatery Caldesi. There is also a selection of popular shops and a library to keep local people entertained at the weekends, and six places of worship to ensure residents are never far away from a Sunday service.
