Love in Marylebone

Love, romance and illicit passion have lurked behind the stately facades of Marylebone for more than 200 years. Ranging from the Brownings to John Profumo, this walk brings to life poets, writers, musicians and politicians who lived and loved in and around Wimpole Street, putting them into the context of this unique and historical part of London. Anthony describes daily life for masters, mistresses and servants in an area that has been one of the most fashionable in London for over two centuries. We also hear about an adventurous dog! (Starting point near Bond Street station).
