B524 Link in Marylebone
Marylebone High Street

The B524 consists of side roads in the Marylebone area of central London. The road was originally unclassified but judging by its number gained its status in the late 1920s.

Starting at traffic lights on the A41 Baker Street the B524 heads eastwards along Paddington Street and passes Paddington Street Gardens. The road soon joins a one-way loop, with westbound traffic using the eastern end of Paddington Street whilst eastbound traffic diverts to the left and goes round the other three sides of the rectangle.

At the eastern end of the loop we reach Marylebone High Street. The B524 now heads south along this road, which is two-way once the loop is left behind. As befits a High Street the road is lined with shops and has vehicles parked on both sides, not necessarily legally. The road name changes imperceptibly to Thayer Street and then we cross the A5204 Wigmore Street at traffic lights. On the far side we enter James Street, which is one-way southbound to accommodate outside seating areas on the wide pavement on the left. Another set of traffic lights is then reached on the A40 Oxford Street where the B524 ends. However, we are forced to carry straight on into the unclassified (and still one-way) Gilbert Street so a short diversion is necessary for us to rejoin a classified road.
