Portland Place, not to be confused with Great Portland Street, runs from the Langham Hotel to Regent's Park. Here you will find consulates, the BBC and All Souls Church, although that is strictly on Langham Place. Portland Place joins New Cavendish Street and will take you in to Marylebone Village. The area is renowned also for Medical specialists.

The north continuation of Regent Street going toward Regent’s Park was laid out for the Duke of Portland in the 18th century. It is wide and elegant street lined with embassies, charities and company headquarters, located in the beautiful buildings and houses.

Portland Place is a street that runs from oxford Circus (it is in fact Regent Street continued), crossing Euston Road up to Regents Park. It is tree lined at the top end and houses many old Royal Society buildings, hotels, Embassies and lovely homes. There is also All Souls Church on this street at Langham Place.

Portland Place is almost a London boulevard, running as it does northwards as a continuation of Regent Street towards Regents Park (an old Royal hunting park). It has particularly attractive buildings on either side - these going back to the Regency period. It is well worth a visit, and you might spot such anomalous buildings as the BBC en route.

Staying in Marylebone

Neighbourhood Profile
Marylebone
Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
