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.
