Spotlight on... Marylebone and Fitzrovia

Marylebone and Fitzrovia – two central London areas that have seen tangible benefits from the opening of the Elizabeth Line last year.


  • A chic residential area just west of Fitzrovia with a strong community feel. A complete contrast to neighbouring Fitzrovia with its hustle and bustle.
  • Marylebone High Street is the backbone of the area with a vibrant row of shops, restaurants and cafes.
  • Pedestrianised shopping alleys such as St Christopher’s Place create a chic personal shopping experience with up-and-coming designers. You can also find vintage clothing, stylish accessories and handmade goodies.
  • The Marylebone Farmers’ Market, open on Sundays is a foodie heaven. It has everything from ripe produce to fresh oysters and lots of fabulous pre-prepared treats.
  • The Cabbages and Frocks Market in the cobblestone courtyard of Marylebone Parish Church, open on Saturdays, always has something exciting to buy.
  • Tourists queue for the Madame Tussauds waxwork museum and the Sherlock Holmes Museum, the latter in the fictional sleuth’s home at 221b Baker Street.
  • The Georgian mansion that houses the Wallace Collection of art and period furnishings typifies the area's elegant architecture. It’s a wonderful mix of world class.
  • Regents Park offers a wonderful green space with a great range of amenities including gardens; a lake with a heronry, a boating area; sports pitches; and children's playgrounds. The northern side of the park is the home to London Zoo.
  • Regents Park Open Air Theatre is an award-winning theatre and a London landmark that is a firm fixture in the London summer cultural diary.
  • Marylebone is on the Bakerloo line but also has great bus links and its own mainline station.


  • Located close to Marylebone, Mayfair, Covent Garden and Soho, Fitzrovia is a fabulous central London address popular with creative businesses which have created a stylish bar and restaurant culture.
  • Just a short journey from the West End, north of Oxford Street and south of Euston Road between Tottenham Court Road and Great Portland Street, Fitzrovia has an almost continental feel. There is a mix of Georgian architecture, impressive stucco townhouses and mansions blocks, as well as modern residential developments.
  • In 1966, the BT Tower opened – which at the time was famous for being the tallest building in London - with a revolving restaurant at the top and panoramic views of the capital city below.
  • Take your tastebuds on a trip along Charlotte Street which has a fantastic selection of bars and restaurants. It’s an exciting foodie adventure.
  • Shop until you drop along Tottenham Court Road and Oxford Street which hosts some of London’s most iconic shops including top department stores Selfridges and John Lewis along with most leading brands.
  • It’s the home of London’s first new-build theatre in London’s West End for 50 years at Soho Place.
  • Fitzrovia is served by five Tube stations — Oxford Street, Tottenham Court Road, Goodge Street, Warren Street and Great Portland Street, offering access to the Northern, Victoria, Central, Circle, Metropolitan and Hammersmith & City lines.
