East Marylebone is a vibrant central area located between Oxford Street and Marylebone Road, to the east of Regent Street.
The area was first developed in the mid-late eighteenth century. It retains its grid street layout from this time, but only a few of the original eighteenth century buildings. Today, the area is dominated by a range of fascinating late ninteenth and early-mid twentieth century buildings. These include a rich mix of building types and styles including, offices, light industrial buildings, shops and terraced housing. Despite the range of styles and uses, buildings within the conservation area are universally characterised by their use of high quality materials, fine craftsmanship and, in many cases, vivid colour. The variety of uses in the area also contribute to its lively character.
East Marylebone was designated a conservation area in 1982 and extended in 1990.
