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 fromDownton 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.

Unique Mayfair Lifestyle and History Walk - Private Custom Tour
My wife and I had the pleasure of having Luciana provide us with a wonderful sightseeing visit to the Mayfair area of London. Despite pouring rain for most of the walking tour Luciana made it enjoyable and eventful. Her knowledge and enthusiasm of the are, its history and the fashion scene in London generally made the day special.
