Marylebone grew up around the parish church of St Mary’s, which was built along the small stream Tyburn (or Tybourne). The parish became known as St Mary’s on the Bourne. However, some would pronounce it with a French flourish as St Mary la Bourne, which is how the area became known as Marylebone.

This chic and vibrant area of London is situated between Hyde Park to the South and Regent’s Park to the North. Since the 18th century, Marylebone has been a fashionable place to live. It has been the home of many famous artists, authors and musicians such as, T S Eliot, Cat Stephens, Madonna, Jimi Hendrix, Elizabeth Barret Browning and many more.
