Marylebone was developed in the late 18th and 19th centuries and has not changed a great deal. It has long associations with the aristocrats of that time as well as the rising middle classes. Its buildings are mostly Georgian, Regency and late Victorian. You can see examples of all three during your Greet. Also included in this Greet is a visit to Regents Park which many consider to be the most beautiful of the London Royal Parks.
The walk takes about two to three hours and starts outside Baker Street underground station and finishes at the fantastic Wallace Collection, one of London’s real hidden treasures.
