The Villages of London – Marylebone
As you walk through Marylebone, you will enjoy its village-like qualities and atmosphere even though it is so close to the encroaching West End. Apart from Sherlock, there are many other celebrities of yesteryear that can be discovered on this tour from JMW Turner to Charles Dickens, British spies Guy Burgess and Anthony Blunt through to such stars as Vivien Leigh and John Lennon.
Why is the area associated with the medical profession? Did you know there is a hidden river called The Tyburn, along the course of which, executions took place? You will also uncover its rather tawdry history from bear baiting, prize fighting and duelling. If you like architecture, this area is a wonderful blend of palatial Georgian houses, Victorian terraces, unorthodox churches, unusual squares and hidden gardens.
"This tour was so brilliant. Emma was so knowledgeable and shared this with us in a fun way. We were fed really well too! Emma is a brilliant natural guide and I'm lookingto book up another tour very soon I really felt I had learnt so much at the end of this tour. Would recommend this to anyone!!"
