Marylebone is a neighbourhood located within the City of Westminster. It's a relatively small, but exclusive part of town, boardered by Oxford Street, Great Portland Street, Edgeware Road and Marylebone road. It's name comes from a church, St Mary within it's boundaries, which sat upon a stream known as the Tyburn. Mary The Bourne got shortened to Marylebone over the years until it became as we know it today. Marylebone was mentioned in the Domesday book in 1086 and has kept its villagey feel today, despite being completely urban. Some independent shops line Marylebone high street, and some very exclusive hotels and real estate stand elegantly around the district.
