Event description
A walk exploring architecture and city making through Marylebone and Mayfair

About this Event

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 where life and the whole look and feel of the city was very different.

Retracing the landscape defined by the River Tyburn, this walk reveals the highs and lows of two of the West End’s smartest districts. From workhouses, tenements and burial grounds to batchelor flats, lost mansions, Lords and Ladies it explores the architectural contrasts and overlooked stories found across one of London’s great hidden riverscapes.

An online walking tour by The London Ambler - Mike Althorpe
