Marylebone is an inner-city area roughly defined as being bounded by Oxford Street to the south, Marylebone Road to the north, Edgware Road to the west and Great Portland Street to the east. Portland Place, part of the grand route from Regent's Park to St James's planned by John Nash (who is commemorated by a bust outside All Souls, Langham Place), has historically been an attractive place for the erection of memorials due to its width.[16]

Regent's Park

Part of Regent's Park lies outside the City of Westminster; for works not listed here see the List of public art in Camden.

Regent's Park is one of London's Royal Parks, located partly in the London Borough of Camden and partly in the City of Westminster. The sculptures in Queen Mary's Gardens (laid out in the 1930s within the Inner Circle or Regent's Park)[56] were bequeathed by the artist Sigismund Goetze, who lived nearby at Grove House from 1907 until his death in 1939.[57] In 1944 his widow Constance Goetze established a trust fund in his memory, known as the Constance Fund, for the financing of new sculpture in London's parks.[58]
