London Group 10 visited the Marylebone area of London.
Starting with Coffee near Bank Station we travelled to Marble Arch, here stood the Tyburn Tree or gallows, a Memorial Stone is in the middle of a traffic island.
From 1196 till 1783 criminals, political and religious victims were executed, includ-ing an already deceased Oliver Cromwell, over the 600 years it is estimated 50,000 people died here.
From here we entered the Portman Estate, one of the biggest private estates in Lon-don comprising 110acres including Manchester Square, Gloucester Place and parts of Baker Street.
Following on we went to Manchester Square and entered Hertford House which houses The Wallace Collection, a wonderful array of armour, China, furniture and a large number of classic paintings, some wonderful Canaletto’s, Rembrandt’s and Reynolds to name a few.
After leaving The Wallace Collection we walked along many of the private Mews and Gardens of this area.
After passing through Grotto Passage and a picture outside the Grotto Ragged and Industrial School, we entered the Memorial Gardens of Rest built on the site of the old parish church, it became known as Mary by the Bourne and hence from this Marylebone.
Also passing through Wimpole Street, Harley Street and finally past Portland Place and BBC Broadcasting House. Finishing at Cavendish Square and Wigmore Street.
A late afternoon lunch was enjoyed at The Lamb and Flag Inn in St James Street.
