Moriarty and Meowiarty

Big Ben

Frankenstein and Katzenstein

Dr. Watson and Watson

Jared's and Jared's Jewlers (this joke made me laugh so hard. "Oh, you went to Jared's!)

Ford Model T and Model MB

221 Baker Street and 221 Barker Street

Westminster Abby and Wolfminster Abby

Buckingham Palace and Barkingham Palace

Scotland Yard and Scotland Yard

That's all I've been able to find so far. It's quite fun trying to find all of the references in Marlybone.

This may be a little of topic but just so you know the London eye is currently the third tallest ferris wheel( and soon to be the forth tallest). The current tallest is the Great Dubai Wheel Followed by the Singapore Flyer. Now back on subject. My favorite difference was probably Sherlock Bones or BARKingham palace. Marleybone is my favorite world because of all the relationships with London( although i have never been there or lived there I still know some of the famous things from there)

Being a born and raised Londoner - I have to disagree. Marleybone is a play on letters for Marylebone, which is a town within the city of London. I have just started playing Marleybone and love it so far! i will start posting when I see more, but I was born in Kensington, and one of the areas I see has the name Kensington Park (there really is one, I used to play in it as a child) and many many more similarities.

Fun fun fun :-) :-) :-) :-)
