Mayfair is a relatively small area with a big reputation. Within the mix of corporate headquarters and hedge funds you’ll find Queen Anne revival-style architecture, luxury shopping, quirky boutiques, fine dining restaurants and friendly cafes. Located East of Hyde Park and north of Piccadilly, the best way to explore Mayfair is to wander the quiet streets and discover its delights for yourself and below are some suggestions to get you started:
Museums & Galleries:
The Royal Academy, Burlington House (on Piccadilly): founded in 1768 to provide a voice for art and artists, the Royal Academy is famous for its Summer Exhibition displaying work from up and coming artists and academicians.
Handel House Museum, 25 Brook Street: the London home of the baroque composer George Frideric Handel from 1723 until his death in 1759 and where he composed some of the greatest music in history.
54 The Gallery, 54 Shepherd Market: described as a ‘jewel of gallery’ and showing the very best in contemporary art.
Mayfair offers an eclectic mix of old, designer and exclusive destination shops.
Mount Street: designer fashion, jewellery and diverse. You’ll find fashion houses Azzaro, Loewe, Lanvin, Céline and Oscar de la Renta alongside jewellers, a Porsche showroom and for cigar enthusiasts Alfie Turmeaus Tobacconist features a walk-in humidor.
Duke Street: leather goods, antiques, furniture, Nelsons 150-year-old pharmacy and Rake – a new menswear boutique.
North Audley Street: Truc Vert is the place to sample and buy gourmet delicatessen products and Richard Gelding is a must-visit for formal menswear and Italian-made shoes.
Burlington Arcade: built in 1819, today it’s an emporium of specialist, independent retailers selling luxury leather goods, jewellery, pens, cashmere and fashion accessories.
Green and open spaces to rest and reflect:
Grosvenor Square: the second largest square in London is six acres of pristine lawns and is encircled by neo-Georgian houses and Embassies.
Mount Street Gardens: a peaceful sanctuary and one of the most important sites for nature conservation in London. Hidden behind red-brick mansion blocks and the neo-Gothic Church of the Immaculate Conception, there are plenty of benches and shade to while away an hour or two.
Brown Hart Gardens (just off Duke Street): one of the city’s best kept secrets, a raised paved terrace that at street level you might not even notice. Located on the roof of the old Duke Street electricity substation, today the garden provides residents, shoppers and local office workers with a sunny, lofty space to escape the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street. There’s even a cafe for refreshments – The Garden Café by Benugo.

A short history: the area of Mayfair was first developed around 1686 and became the site for the annual May Fayre (a 15 day celebration from May Day and thought to have started in the days of Edward I to mark St James Day), a combination of market, entertainment and merriment, and very popular annual event. However, the combination of ‘merry-makers’ and residents meant there were regular calls for it to be banned for ‘unsavoury and lewd’ happenings and was eventually was closed at the order of Queen Charlotte in 1708.
With the May Fayre gone, the area rapidly became the London base of the aristocracy. Shepherd Market, the site where the fair used to take place, was developed in the mid-1700’s creating the area’s paved alleys, a two-storey market, theatre and duck pond.
After the First World War, the area went into decline. The aristocracy could no longer afford the great houses or find the servants needed to run them, and many were converted into flats or became private clubs.
During the Second World War, a shortage of office space as a result of bombing in the City forced the local authority to issue 50-year permits which granted the mansion owner’s permission to use the properties for commercial purposes, which consequently changed the character of the area for most of the rest of the century. Today, however, Mayfair is still one of the best addresses in London.
