The local area guide to living in Mayfair
Mayfair, famously the most expensive property on a London Monopoly board, was the birthplace of Queen Elizabeth II and is one of the most prestigious locations in London.
Right in the middle of the Borough of Westminster, it is home to world famous tailors Savile Row, exclusive auction houses Sotheby's, and other examples of London 'old money'. The name originated from 15-day 'May Fairs', which ran until the 18th century when they were ended for not being in keeping with the grandeur of the area.
From the early years of the Industrial Revolution, wealthy and status-aware landlords built many buildings in the area and that architecture still defines the district today. Spacious squares, tranquil parks, wide streets and beautiful houses mark it out, and it is now the chosen location for many high-end real estate and wealth management businesses. It also hosts the US Embassy which features an imposing statue of Franklin D Roosevelt, among other diplomatic buildings.
Mayfair is also home to many of London's finest restaurants, bars and nightclubs which are popular among the super-rich and the super-famous. It is also known for its fantastic shopping options, including high-fashion boutiques and jewellers.

Mayfair is very famous for its convenience for fanatical shoppers. It lies between Park Lane, Regent Street, Oxford Street and Piccadilly, and draws visitors from all over the world purely because of the great shopping to be done there.
