Two London questions, one of which is really dumb

Jump to last reply

I'll start with the not so dumb one: how does one pronounce Marylebone? Mairly Bone? Murly Bone? As it's spelled, Mary le Bone? (sounds like one of the Ripper's victims) Or is it something else entirely? Given the odd (to American ears) way the English pronounce some place names, it may well be "Smith".

And now for the maybe-not-as-dumb-as-it-seems question: Where is the famous West End? Yes, I know the difference between North and South, East and West, and the only trouble I have with maps is getting them re-folded properly. But the two maps I have of London only indicate sections or neighborhoods like Kens., Bayswater, Soho, Mayfair, etc.

So, please tell me which small area constitutes the theatre district commonly known as the West End, and what, generally speaking, are the boundaries/convenient tube stops?

Thanks in advance. You can scarcely imagine my gratitude.
