Marylebone (sometimes written St. Marylebone or Mary-le-bone) is an affluent, inner-city area of central London, located within the City of Westminster. It can be pronounced as Marribun or Mar(i)-lee-bone or Mar-Li-Bow}.
Marylebone is in an area of London that can be roughly defined as the area bounded by Oxford Street to the south, Marylebone Road to the north, Edgware Road to the west and Portland Place (or alternatively Great Portland Street) to the east. Occasionally, this area is designated as "Marylebone Village". A broader definition of Marylebone is then used, which encompasses Regent`s Park and the area immediately north of Marylebone Road, containing Marylebone Station, the original site of the Marylebone Cricket Club at Dorset Square, and the neighbourhood known as Lisson Grove to the border with St John`s Wood. The west side of the Fitzrovia area up to Cleveland Street was also previously considered to be part of Marylebone.
Today the area is mostly residential. Since the opening of the Jubilee Line at Baker Street station (with its direct links to Canary Wharf), Marylebone - particularly Marylebone Village - has become a very sought-after area of Central London.
