Event description

Description

Marylebone and Mayfair are among London’s most exclusive neighbourhoods. Originally developed for England’s nobility in the 17th and 18th centuries, their smart terraces and squares are the outcome of waves of speculation and renewal by The Great Estates – the city’s aristocratic land owners. Yet beside these genteel enclaves once stood notorious hinterlands and slums. Retracing the landscape defined by the River Tyburn, this walk reveals the highs and lows of the West End’s smartest districts. From workhouses, tenements, burial grounds to batchelor flats, lost mansions, Lords and Ladies it revels in the contrasts and overlooked architectural stories along one of London’s great hidden riverscapes.

DEPARTS – Front of St Marylebone Parish Church, facing Marylebone road.

A walk by The London Ambler - Mike Althorpe.
