Tranquil, sophisticated and incredibly central, Mayfair is home to some of London’s finest historic gems, creative institutions and luxury emporiums. Stroll through secret cobbled streets and discover world-class bars and restaurants on every corner.
Our not-to-be-missed suggestions are; a stroll through historic Shepherd Market where the 17th century notoriously bawdy ‘May Fair’ was originally held, drop by Buckingham Palace to witness the changing of the guard and possibly see the Queen… indulge in a luxury shopping trip to ornate Burlington Arcade and Bond Street, or, bustling Oxford Street where you have to pop into Selfridges, one of London’s biggest and best department stores.
If art and culture are your top priorities this autumn we are spoiled for choice; Abstract Expressionism at The Royal Academy, contemporary art fair Frieze in London Regent’s Park, Picasso Portraits at the National Portrait Gallery and the early experimental photography of Vogue photographer Erwin Blumenfeld at Osborne Samuel. And, of course, a trip to a West End theatre show.
As London’s fashionable, cultural and culinary epicentre, Mayfair really does have it all.
