I was looking at the map of Marleybone and I noticed that a lot of places are sort of puns. In CT, USA there is a Newgate Prison. Also in CT, USA there is dolittle school, in relation to abigail dolittle. In England or something the police is called Scotland Yard. Katzenstein sounds awfully familiar to Frankenstein. Oh yeah, and my mom told me Big Ben is a place in England or someplace in Europe. Just noticed...

These are all TRUE. Marleybone is an England themed world.

All of the places you mentioned are in or near London, England, in the real world. Marleybone seems to be based on 19th century London--the world setting of Sherlock Holmes. I'm very eager to get there and see if there is perhaps a detective character to meet! (I love detective stories.)
Well, "Frankenstien" isn't a place, but the rest are.

Thought of another one! I watched Sherlock Holmes last night and there's a guy named Roriarty! Like Meowiarty!

Yes! I love Marleybone. Such an adventure. Though all of those are correct, Marleybone is set in England.

Dont forget look for a character named Jaques the Scratcher. Its a comical reference to the infamous killer, Jack the Ripper. I love marleybone for all of its puns.

Sherlock Holmes sounds like Sherlock Bones!

scratch my last post, marylebone is an intercity area of London. marleybone is apparently an anagram of that. Not to mention the irony of abigail doolittle (as in dr doolittle, the guy who talked to animals). Ok, now that i cleared that up, good luck with frustrating kensington park, you grandmasters.
