Mayfair Area Guide

Prestigious, filled with elegant Georgian townhouses and designer stores such as Burberry, Chanel and Jimmy Choo, Mayfair is an exclusive home to the affluent and the luxurious.

Beautifully located  between the Royal Parks of Hyde Park and Green Park, it provides you with easy access across the city and an abundance of lifestyle choices.  Nestled in Mayfair you will discover the historically significant Berkeley Square with its stunning corridor of London plant trees, and which was once home to Sir Winston Churchill.  With over 2.5 hectares of immaculate lawns, Grosvenor Square is the second largest square in London.  With so much greenery on your doorstep, you wouldn’t be wrong in thinking that this area offers you a little piece of countryside in the city.

Known as the heart of Mayfair, Shepherd Market is one of those hidden gems with its curious and quaint assortment of Victorian pubs, charming alleyways and boutique shops all situated around a small piazza; the village-like feel of Shepherd Market makes it wonderfully unique.  Another special place to note is Burlington Arcade, which dates back to 1819 and was designed to sell jewellery and luxuries – which it still does today.  With stores such as swimwear brand Vilebrequin offering you ‘the style and spirit of the French Riviera’, and celebrated perfumers Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle, exploring the boutiques of Burlington Arcade is a pleasure that must be experienced.

The Royal Academy of Arts has championed arts and artists for over 250 years and hosts many exhibitions throughout the year, the most notable being the Summer Exhibition, a key date on the London social calendar.  Handel & Hendrix in London – two men separated by 200 years but who lived in adjoining houses, this museum celebrates the lives and music of these two renowned composers.  For an evening cocktail we recommend you try the Aviator Bar at Hush, a cocktail lounge inspired by the ‘60s, where trained mixologists will serve you delicious beverages that take you on a tour around the world.

The finest living which others aspire to, Mayfair is simply exquisite in every way.
