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.

When we visit London on business or pleasure we also stay in the Mayfair area because it's a classy neighborhood. We enjoy walking around in this area and seeing all the beautiful buildings and squares. There are several good restaurants and some very interesting shops to visit. All in all just a great area to visit or stay in.

Staying in Mayfair

Neighborhood Profile
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.
