Britain By Car - A Motoring History


An affluent district of central London, with many well-known streets and landmarks, including Oxford Street, Edgware Road, Portland Place and Regent’s Park.  The name of the area appears to be derived from the former local parish church, known as St Mary’s, built alongside a small stream (or bourne) called the Tyburn.
