Explore the Architecture of Mayfair & Marylebone

Guided by Mike A.

About this activity
Marylebone and Mayfair are among London's most exclusive and desirable neighbourhoods. Originally built and developed for England's nobility in the 17th and 18th centuries, their smart terraces and elegant squares are the spectacular outcome of repeated waves of property speculation and renewal by The Great Estates - the city's historic aristocratic developer/land owners. Yet beside these genteel enclaves once stood some of London's most notorious hinterlands.

Retracing the historic landscape and topology defined by the twists and turns of the River Tyburn, this walk reveals the highs and lows of the West End's smartest residential districts. From workhouses, slums, burial grounds and religious outlaws to lost mansions and Lords it revels in the contrasts and overlooked historical stories to be found along one of London's great hidden riverine landscape.

A walk led by The London Ambler - Mike Althorpe.

The London Ambler is Mike Althorpe - an architectural historian and London story teller. Between stomping city streets and immersing myself in its urban fabric, I work as a researcher and curator at an architectural practice - which isn't all that different to be honest(!) : ) Looking at life and the evolution of cities is my passion.
