Mayfair is one of the most upscale areas of London with its high-end shops, restaurants, hotels, and so on. Added to that, the architecture is stunning. If you're not a fan of shopping, it's still a great place to take a walk and soak in the sights, the architecture, and the grandeur of the area.

Must come to this part of the city if you'll be anywhere near Oxford and Regent St. If you've ever played monopoly you should be at least a bit curious. Lovely high end neighbourhood with beautiful architecture and high end luxury hotels and retail shops. An enjoyable stroll.

We had spent most of a Saturday afternoon shopping in London’s West End. Oxford Street was where we had made most of our purchases. Before we departed from the retail “headquarters” of London, we decided to take a short detour and have a stroll through the exclusive Mayfair area. Mayfair is awash with luxury hotels, exclusive retail outlets, “high-end” restaurants... More

Come to this part of London to see and be among the well heeled masses. There are so many interesting buildings, the shops are great, and there's even food and drink to be had.

Ideal London location. Near Piccadilly Circus, Bukingham Palace, Oxford Street and Museums. There are tons of tube stations everywhere to help navigate the city.

Staying in Mayfair

Neighborhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
