With Bond Street, Savile Row, and Mount Street on your doorstep, one of the biggest draws of Mayfair is its shopping with some of the world's most exclusive boutiques, including Chanel, Gucci, and Louis Vuitton, as well as high-end department stores like Selfridges and Harrods. It's a shoppers' paradise that retains a quintessentially English village feel.
Mayfair has some of the best restaurants in London. From Michelin-starred establishments like Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester to trendy hot spots like Novikov, there's something for every taste. The area is also home to many of London's most famous bars and clubs, including the legendary Annabel's and Mahiki.

Mayfair is well-connected to the rest of London with several London underground stations, including Green Park, Bond Street, and Oxford Circus, which offer access to the Jubilee, Piccadilly, Victoria, and Central lines. These lines provide easy access to other parts of London, including the West End, the City of London, and Heathrow Airport. Additionally, several bus routes serve Mayfair, providing connections to other parts of the city.
Many of the properties in Mayfair are period homes, such as Georgian and Victorian townhouses, that have been converted into luxury apartments. While there have been some recent new build developments in the Mayfair area, the historic nature of the neighbourhood means space is very much at a premium, and properties that do come to market tend to be two or three-bedroom flats and duplexes rather than townhouses. What you are sacrificing in square footage, however, you make up for with style.
