London is one of the great cities of the world and has a transport system to match, including the train station London Marylebone (pronounced mar-a-le-bun). Situated in the northwest of the city centre, the train station London Marylebone lies near Regent's Park and is close to the famous home of Sherlock Holmes - 221B Baker Street. The train station mainly provides trains to the geographical center of England, including Oxford and Birmingham, as well as commuter destinations like Aylesbury. Marylebone is on the Bakerloo Line, one of the main London Underground subway lines, which runs from further out northwest through Marylebone and south into the city centre. This station is situated just off the Euston Road, a major road artery in and out of London, and is served by several bus routes.
The historic city centre of London is Charing Cross. Passengers have a choice of transport methods to get from Charing Cross to the train station London Marylebone, including the London Underground subway, bus services, a taxi, or walking. The tube (London Underground) is probably most straightforward. Charing Cross station is on the Bakerloo line, running straight to Marylebone. Passengers can also take the Circle or District lines from Embankment (five minutes walk south of Charing Cross on the River Thames) to Westminster and then change, taking the Jubilee line to Baker Street, from where Marylebone is an eight-minute walk. It is also possible to take the bus, with the 453 bus running from Trafalgar Square to Great Central Street - just by Marylebone - and the 139 bus running from Charing Cross Station to Baker Street Station, with just a short walk after to Marylebone. Both buses run every five to ten minutes. The Bakerloo line is not part of the Night Tube service, so it does not run all night, but the 453 bus does, and there is a special bus service - the N18 - that runs from Trafalgar Square to the train station London Marylebone through the night.
Marylebone is around 1.5 miles (2.4 kilometers) from the city centre. Walking takes around 45 minutes. It is quickest to take the subway (the tube), getting on the Bakerloo line from Charing Cross Station for a 15-minute trip. The other tube connection, with the Jubilee, Circle, and District lines, takes about 25 minutes. How long the bus takes depends on how much traffic there is on the road. With normal traffic in the middle of the day, it would be wise to set aside between 30 and 40 minutes for the journey with either the 453 bus or the 139 bus. If traveling at night (after 11:00 p.m.), then the journey could take as little as 15 minutes, as traffic will be much lighter. The same is true for taking a cab - passengers won't have to walk at either end, but traffic will mean that this won't be much quicker than getting the bus, with a journey time of probably around half an hour. If traveling without luggage, London also has a good cycle rental system, where passengers can pick up bikes from terminals on most streets, dropping them off at their destination. Cycling between the city centre and London Marylebone would likely take around 20 minutes.
Marylebone Station itself is fully accessible. There is step-free access throughout with flat access to all platforms, as well as ramps for train access and staff assistance available on request. There is also a helpline that can be called in advance that is open Monday through Sunday, 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. However, the London Underground subway system is not a very accessible form of transport, and it is not possible to exit Baker Street or Marylebone underground stations without using stairs or escalators. For those with limited mobility, the bus would be a better option. All London buses are fully accessible with automatic ramps for wheelchairs, as well as dedicated spaces within buses for wheelchair users and priority seating for those who need to sit down. London taxis are also wheelchair accessible.
If carrying a lot of luggage, the bus will be the best option: it has a luggage and wheelchair area and is cheaper than getting a taxi. There is a lot to do in the area around the train station London Marylebone, including the famous Madame Tussauds waxwork exhibition and, as mentioned above, 221B Baker Street, where the fictional detective Sherlock Holmes lived. Regents Park is just around the corner, where there is a zoo and a great deal of beautiful wildlife, including a pond with many ducks and different birds. Marylebone also lies near Edgware Road, which is home to many excellent Middle Eastern restaurants.
