The area
Address
Neighborhood: Marylebone
Marylebone offers what so many London neighborhoods 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.

Not a church anymore
May 2019 • Couples
Strange building that was a church at some stage in the past. Nice building but not worth a visit. Not recommended.

Institute for Contemporary Christianity

It’s something of an anomaly that St. Peter’s is still described as a church and yet is closed for services this Sunday and every Sunday. That’s because it had been deconsecrated and is now houses the Institute of Contemporary Christianity although what precisely happens here is something of a mystery. Looking into the history of this place it has always served as an adjunct to a larger neighbouring institution. Originally built in 1722 as a ‘chapel of ease’ (overflow church?) to supplement the growing parish of St. Marylebone, but which boasted composer William Boyce as its organist from 1732-4, it perhaps saw most active service from 1940-1951 when it inherits the congregation of All Souls Langham Place bring restored following war damage. It remains a Grade I listed building.
