As all those who have played Monopoly – the original London version that is – will know, Mayfair is one of the most valuable and desirable properties on the board. It had a reputation as an area which mainly housed wealthy retirees and aristocrats.

However, over the past few years, things have changed. Now almost sixty percent of Mayfair’s population is under forty-five, and is a favourite part of town for wealthy business owners, bankers and others from the business world.

Another change in the demographic of Mayfair’s population has been the influx of young people from overseas. This new population is looking to Mayfair to provide them with benefits that make it an attractive place to live. And Mayfair is providing those benefits.

Restaurants, bars and gyms

If current Mayfair residents are looking for places to exercise then they are spoilt for choice, with luxury gyms like The Third Space and The Mayfair. Both venues offer excellent facilities.

And the same goes for restaurants and bars. It is really difficult to go wrong if you are looking for somewhere good to eat and drink in Mayfair. There is a choice of many high-class establishments: Le Gavroche, Corrigan’s Mayfair, and Trader Vic’s are just some of the places where people can relax with good food, cocktails and fine wines.

High-end retailing

Like past residents of Mayfair, the new generation of residents want shops that can offer high-quality goods. There are designer boutiques and independent stores selling stylish furniture, whiskey, wines, and fine art, as well as luxury leather goods.

Connections to the centre of commerce

Mayfair residents require quick and easy transport to other parts of London, from the West End to the City and beyond. Transport links are superb, and with Crossrail soon to open, transport  connections to all parts of London will improve even more.

Open air places to relax

Mayfair is not just about restaurants and bars. Its close proximity to Hyde Park, St James’s Park, and Green Park offer plenty of opportunities for people to enjoy some of London’s best open air locations and green spaces.

Stunning residential architecture

Mayfair offers a wide range of top quality properties, from Georgian properties to apartments in Victorian mansion blocks to penthouses in modern buildings. These properties are some of the best to be found in London.
