Portland Place, not to be confused with Great Portland Street, runs from the Langham Hotel to Regent's Park. Here you will find consulates, the BBC and All Souls Church, although that is strictly on Langham Place. Portland Place joins New Cavendish Street and will take you in to Marylebone Village. The area is renowned also for Medical specialists.

The north continuation of Regent Street going toward Regent’s Park was laid out for the Duke of Portland in the 18th century. It is wide and elegant street lined with embassies, charities and company headquarters, located in the beautiful buildings and houses.

Portland Place is a street that runs from oxford Circus (it is in fact Regent Street continued), crossing Euston Road up to Regents Park. It is tree lined at the top end and houses many old Royal Society buildings, hotels, Embassies and lovely homes. There is also All Souls Church on this street at Langham Place.

Portland Place is almost a London boulevard, running as it does northwards as a continuation of Regent Street towards Regents Park (an old Royal hunting park). It has particularly attractive buildings on either side - these going back to the Regency period. It is well worth a visit, and you might spot such anomalous buildings as the BBC en route.
