It is a street in the Marylebone district of the City of Westminster, London, that contains four listed buildings. In 1936, the London County Council tried to rename the street Marylebone High Street, along with Mandeville Place and James Street so that the whole north-south route from Oxford Street to Marylebone Road would have the same name. The proposal was opposed by the shopkeepers and small traders in the street who worried about the cost of the change, possible customer confusion, and the association with Marylebone Road rather than the posher Oxford Street they were nearer. Thayer Street is mainly made up of older terraced houses with small shops at ground level. Heron Place is a 1960s mixed use building on the western side that was renovated in 2013/14.
