<Back to Northumberland Avenue : See All Posts : On To Bow Street>
Marylebone is one of the smallest of the London train stations and is the prettiest I have visited so far. It lies to the north of the Marylebone Road and a little west of Regents Park. It is both an overground and an underground (on the Bakerloo line) station and dates from 1899 (once a London terminus for trains heading to Sheffield and Manchester).
I started my visit with a walk around the outside of the station walking up Harewood Avenue, along Rossmore Road and then back down Boston Place (many pretty properties down here), then back to the main entrance on Melcombe Place.
The front of the station has an attractive glass and ironwork canopy (where the taxis drop off). But my images came from inside the station.
The staff at the station all seemed very friendly and helpful and obviously take great pride in their station. The first image includes some greenery which is trying hard not to look out of place at the end of the platform. The second image is of a lady trailing her wheeled cases as she makes for her train. The third is of a man (looking way too cool) checking his phone for messages. I hope you like the images as much as I liked this station. I will be back some time I am sure.
My next location is Bow Street, so after a bite to eat I am on my way.
Rather than retracing my steps from Northumberland Avenue, I walk east along Marylebone Road past Madame Tussaud's and keep going until I get to Great Portland Street. I then head south down Bolsover Street past the University of Westminster students union (which was the Polytechnic of Central London when I was there many years ago). I then cut over down to Piccadilly Circus. Then it's a short hop over to Covent Garden and onto Bow Street.
