Art and science collide in this charming corner of northwest London set below Regent’s Park.
Marylebone, home of the Royal Academy of Music and the Sylvia Young Theatre School, has long attracted artistic types, most notably The Beatles. In the 1960s, Paul McCartney wrote “Yesterday” at 57 Wimpole St., while Ringo Starr had a flat on Montagu Square, which he rented to Jimi Hendrix and then to John Lennon and Yoko Ono.
Marylebone is also a long-standing hub for private medical and surgery clinics centering around the world-famous Harley Street, which was established in the 19th century.
The destination neighborhood, which borders the bustling Oxford Street to the south, is known for its attractive 19th-century Georgian homes and high street with cool-meets-chic independent shops and a vibrant café culture, which lies in its ‘“village” part.
