The prestige of the exclusive central London area of Mayfair has grown in the popular mind due to its designation as the most expensive property on the British version of the Monopoly board game.
Named after the annual fortnight-long May Fair that took place from 1686 to 1764 on the site that is Shepherd Market.
Most of the area – which is bordered by Hyde Park to the west, Oxford Street to the north, Piccadilly and Green Park to the south and Regent Street to the east – was first developed between the mid-17th century and the mid-18th century.
As a result, its property mix includes grand mansions, beautiful mews and magnificent apartments in a variety of architectural styles. For grand lateral apartments, for example, look in Grosvenor Square and Park Lane.
Head to Mount Street and South Audley Street for pied à terres, while large mews-style homes can be found in Hays Mews, Culross Street or Adams Row.
Mayfair also contains an abundance of townhouses, some of which remain intact, while others have been divided into apartments. There is also a selection of purpose-built apartment buildings dating from the end of the 19th century to the present day.
Mayfair’s central location and the quality of life on offer attracts people who want the best of both worlds. However, many of its 5,100 permanent residents – who count a staggering 42-plus nationalities as their places of birth – get around London on the Tube network.
Bond Street provides Jubilee Line services to Westminster, Waterloo and out to Canary Wharf, and Central Line services straight into the City. From Green Park, the Piccadilly Line runs south to Heathrow Airport and north to the international rail terminus at King’s Cross St Pancras, and the Victoria Line connects to Victoria and its mainline services to the South Coast. Hyde Park Corner and Marble Arch also provide Central and Piccadilly Line services.
One Tube station no longer available is Down Street (Mayfair), which was opened in 1907 and closed in 1932 due to a shortage of people using it. However, during World War Two it was used as a bunker by Prime Minister Winston Churchill and his War Cabinet.
Above ground, the A40 is a major road artery that becomes the M40 and connects with the M25. The A4 (Piccadilly) runs through Kensington and Hammersmith to join the M4 at Chiswick.
Did you know? The Ritz hotel was built on a site previously occupied by The Old White Horse Cellar, one of the most famous coaching inns in London. It was one of the first steel-frame buildings to be erected in Europe. The restaurant has so many chandeliers that its ceiling had to be specially reinforced.
Did you also know? Le Gavroche in Upper Brook Street is named after a street urchin in Victor Hugo’s Les Miserables. The restaurant, which opened in 1967, was the first in the UK to be awarded three Michelin stars.
There are a number of excellent schools in Mayfair and the surrounding area. Below is a contact list of information for Primary, Secondary and International schools.
