In the heart of London
The Academy is at the heart of London, providing easy access to and from all parts of the city and beyond. The Academy’s buildings are alongside Regent’s Park, just across Marylebone Road from Marylebone Village.
The restaurants, bars and cafés in Marylebone Village offer perfect meeting points from coffee catch-ups to the important lunchtime or evening rendezvous.
Famous former and current residents of Marylebone include Adam Ant, AJ Ayer, Jane Asher, Charles Babbage, Francis Beaufort, Derren Brown, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Lord Byron, Wilkie Collins, Charles Dickens, Jacqueline du Pré, Sir Clement Freud, Noel Gallagher, Edward Gibbon, Jimi Hendrix, the fictional Sherlock Holmes, Edward Lear, John Lennon, Madonna, Sir Paul McCartney, Sienna Miller, Yoko Ono, Pitt the Elder, Guy Ritchie, Ringo Starr, HG Wells, Charles Wesley, Barbara Windsor and Norman Wisdom.
London is an exciting and inspiring capital city in which to live and work. 30% of London residents were born outside England, and more than 300 languages are spoken in London: as one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world, it offers an unrivalled range of cultural and leisure activities. There is always something to do and somewhere to go, whatever your tastes.
London is ranked the top city world-wide in Price Waterhouse Cooper’s ‘cities of opportunities’ index 2014, which measures ‘the fundamentals of a well-balanced city: forward-looking tools such as education and technology; quality of life making cities healthy, happy, and sustainable; and the ability to pay the bills for it all’.
