Amid the bustle of Marble Arch and Edgware Road, imagine a Roman Road, Tyburn Tree, Speakers’ Corner and a hotel with serious rock ‘n’ roll credentials. Have you noticed award-winning modern architecture alongside classic Georgian buildings? Did you see the tube station wrapped in an artwork?
The BID area is full of cultural and historical surprises. It is crowned by a treasured national monument, Marble Arch, yet its story is little known and few people venture into the streets surrounding Edgware Road to seek out the stories, characters, architecture and public art to be found there.
