There’s a reason why Mayfair is the most expensive property on the Monopoly board… Known as the playground of the rich and famous, it’s home to luxury brands, high-end boutiques, and the best Italian and pasta restaurant in London, Il Borro Tuscan Bistro.
Things to do in Mayfair are many and varied and here are just three things we recommend:
1. Take a seat with Churchill and Roosevelt
Just a short stroll from Il Borro Tuscan Bistro, on the corner of Grafton Street and New Bond Street, is a stunning life-size sculpture of the war leaders sitting in conversation on a park bench. There is space in between the great friends for you to take a rest and get a picture with two of the most important figures in recent history.
One of the top things to do in Mayfair is to visit the many upmarket stores. Whether you’re looking for jewellery, art, or the latest boutique fashion, it’s all here in Mayfair. Make sure to meander through the historic Burlington Arcade which, to this day, is patrolled by the famous ‘Beadles’ who uphold the arcade’s strict code of conduct. As legend has it, a certain Sir Paul McCartney once got reprimanded in there for whistling…
3. Enjoy the green spaces
For things to do in Mayfair, there are several beautiful green spaces to take a leisurely wander around. The expansive Hyde Park features sights to see such as the famous Speaker’s Corner, the Serpentine Lake, and the Princess Diana Memorial Fountain. Mayfair is also home to the luscious Grosvenor Square, the sculpture laden Berekely Square and, if you can find it, the secluded hidden treasure of Mount Street Gardens…
