Marylebone is a fascinating part of London and a place of contradictions, contrasts and mysteries. From aristocratic mansions, and the beginning of social improved areas of slum dwellings, today this urban village is a very vibrant part of town. As we start our exploration, we will meet our most celebrated detective, learn about a secret marriage between two of the most well-known Victorian poets, see where Michael Faraday our most famous British physicist started his work and discover why a celebrated art collector Wallace gave his name to Parisian drinking fountains. Continuing on we will follow the route of the Tyburn River, meet Sir Frederick Treves, who befriended the Elephant Man and learn how a piano warehouse became a famous concert hall. Finally we will end our walk in Cavendish Square where an Epstein statue offended nuns and where the famous Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson set his famous Victorian novella, “Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde”.
Meeting Point: 11:00 AM at the Sherlock Holmes statue, outside Baker Street Station. The walk will finish at Cavendish Square.
