Few little facts about Marylebone
Marylebone is situated within the City of Westminster in Central London. It is sometimes also written as St. Marylebone or Mary-le-bone. The name came from the Church called St. Mary's (now known as St. Mary's Parish Church), which was built on the bank of a small stream or "Bourne" called the Tybourne or Tyburn. 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").
The Metropolitan Borough of St Marylebone was a metropolitan borough of the County of London between 1899 and 1965, after which it was merged with the Metropolitan Borough of Paddington and the Metropolitan Borough of Westminster to form the City of Westminster.
The area is mostly residential, with many medical and dental offices in its central area. The area has a large number of educational insitutions including The University of Westminster, St Marylebone School, Royal Academy of Music and Regent's College. Many famous figures lived in the area.
