Living in Marylebone & West End area information and guide

Marylebone & West End area overview

Marylebone is a village right in the heart of London and includes Mayfair and Fitzrovia (also part of the W1 postcode). Oxford Street, perhaps the most famous shopping street in the world runs from east to west and Regent Street from north to south of the district. It is home to London's oldest department stores including Selfridges, John Lewis and Debenhams.

Despite being a commercial centre there is also a lot of prime residential property there unlike the city of London which is very functional. As well as being a principal shopping district it is also home to London's main private medical district, in and around Harley Street. In terms of famous former residents, Marylebone is pretty hard to beat with Edward Gibbon, Jimi Hendrix, H.G. Wells Charles Dickens, most of the Beatles, Pitt the Elder and Benedict Arnold having lived here at some point.
