A Little Bit About Marylebone
Marylebone gets its name from a church dedicated to St Mary represented now by St Marylebone Parish Church. The original church was built on the bank of a small stream or “bourne”, called the Tybourne or Tyburn, that rose further north in what is now Swiss Cottage, eventually running along what is now Marylebone Lane which preserves its curve within the grid pattern.
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”).
In the 18th century the area was known for the raffish entertainments of Marylebone Gardens, scene of bear-baiting and prizefights by members of both sexes and for the duelling grounds in Marylebone Fields. The very first London Bus route began in Marylebone
The smart, bustling area Marylebone High Street was voted London’s favourite street in a BBC Radio 4 survey.
