Mayfair Tours

Mayfair
One of Central London’s most affluent districts, Mayfair is known for its designer stores, luxurious hotels, and stately architecture—and as the birthplace of Her Majesty the Queen. It’s also bordered by two of the city’s largest green spaces—Hyde Park to the west and Green Park to the south—and home to immaculate gardens.

The Basics
The obvious starting point for a walking tour of Mayfair is Grosvenor Square, named after the Grosvenor family, who still own a good portion of the neighborhood. Shoppers make a beeline for Bond Street, and the area around Berkeley Gardens is filled with bars and restaurants.

Sightseeing tours of Central London often make a stop in Mayfair. Admire the lavish architecture on a walking tour, spot film locations from Downton Abbey, visit the neighborhood’s renowned chocolatiers, or spend a night at one of London’s most extravagant hotels—the Ritz, the Dorchester, the Four Seasons, and Claridges are all found in Mayfair. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Mayfair is one of London’s most popular foodie destinations, with top restaurants including Nobu, Michel Roux Jr.’s Le Gavroche, Gordon Ramsay’s Maze Grill, and the Michelin three-star Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester.
  • Most bars, restaurants, and nightclubs in Mayfair have a strict dress code, and dinner reservations are essential. 
  • Shops along Bond Street typically open between 9:30am and 10am and close around 6:30pm or 7:30pm.

How to Get There
The district of Mayfair is located between Oxford Street, Piccadilly, and Regent Street in Central London, and runs along the eastern border of Hyde Park. The closest tube stations are Bond Street (Central and Jubilee lines) and Green Park (Jubilee, Piccadilly, and Victoria lines).

When to Get There
Head to Mayfair during the day to shop, make an appointment at The Ritz or The Dorchester for afternoon tea, then join London’s elite at celebrity-studded nightclubs like Mahiki in the evening hours. Thursday is late shopping night along Bond Street, when shops typically stay open until 9pm or 10pm, while the most atmospheric time to visit is during the Christmas season, when the neighborhood is strung with festive lights. 

The Shops of Mayfair
The district’s principal shopping streets include the world-famous Bond Street, home to Balenciaga, Christian Louboutin, Jenny Packham, and Marc Jacobs, among others; and Saville Row, renowned for its exquisite men’s tailoring. The elegant Royal and Burlington shopping arcades are also full of luxury boutiques, while New Bond Street is famed for its auction houses, including the ever-popular Phillips and Sotheby's.

Guided tours are a great way to see the best of London, but trudging round the landmarks can lack a certain appeal. On this walking tour with a difference, starting in Mayfair, tuck into some of London's finest blue cheese, in a cheese counter that's been serving the whey too eager public for over 300 years. This place sells literally tonnes of Stilton every December! Fortnum & Mason is where even the royals get their dairy fix. Stop off in the last remaining store of Little Italy in Soho, dine on some of the best baked Camembert in Covent Garden.

Beatles'n More Rock'n Roll Private Taxi Tour

star-5

The price you see is the total cost. ............... Loads of FAB Beatles & London Rock'n Roll landmarks. Half Day London Tour (4 hours):  9.00 - 12.00pm start. Taxi tour with a very small amount of walking. ................. The title of this tour says it all, and we're not just restricted to the Beatles (this is London we're talking about). We’ll visit a certain well known recording studio (and zebra crossing) in Abbey Road as well as Marylebone marriages, film locations and blue plaques. Upmarket Mayfair and Marylebone are more rock’n roll than expected and seedy Soho more than lives up to its reputation. We may trip the edges of Covent Garden, nip into Kensington or dip into St James's for the biggest surprises of all. I never like to give too much away when writing about this tour (promised: you will get satisfaction). It spoils some of the secrets and reveals surprises best seen on the tour. All I can say is, London Calling...you'll wish you were here.
