Grosvenor Square is in Mayfair, just behind Park Lane and not far from shops of Oxford Street. What is a lovely tranquil neighbour park, has been overshadowed over the years by the American Embassy which has an air of unease. More and more security measures have been added with the road, which use to run in front of it being... More

I walk through this neighborhood each time I visit London. With many embassys around the area it is well kept. I enjoy the September 11th Memorial the most in this small park. I will continue to walk through here and read the simple phrase "Grief is the price we pay for Love" above the simple memorial on the East end... More

The US embassy, that has been occupying a building on the West side of the square will move out in 2-3 years to a new site. This will bring a more casual atmosphere to this nice park. At he moment, security issues do not enable free access everywhere.

Grosvenor Square is in the heart of exclusive Mayfair, close to some of London's top hotels along Park Lane and the shopping mecca of Oxford Street. What could be a lovely tranquil park, has a slight air on unease which emanates from the looming edifice of the American Embassy. Every time I visit this square there are more an more... More

We walked through here after shopping at Oxford Street. It is a good spot to rest after a day at the shops and restaurants nearby. The park does close at night. When we passed through at 6:30pm, a guard was preparing to close the gates.

This park is the perfect size for anyone with children. It's small, so you can see your child even if they run to the furthest end from where you are, but it's big enough for children to get a good run in! Sedate and well kept, it's lovely for romantic walks too.

Took a walk here yesterday. Grosvenor Square is a wonderful green area right in the heart of Mayfair. A stone's throw from the busy shopping streets (Oxford, Bond, Regent, etc) and perfectly located for the excellent restaurants nearby (Mount street, South Audley street, etc). With lots of trees for shade, benches to sit and relax in and enough space to... More

I happened to walk past in summer and was lucky to catch a summer programme in the square. It's a very large square with nice green spaces to chill out over lunch etc. Even for a tourist, it's a refreshing change form all the shopping along the (nearby) bustling Oxford Street. Have a relaxing drink here while you wait for... More

What makes Grosvenor Square different to all the other small areas of green dotted around London, is that it’s home to the US Embassy and the Canadian Embassy. Look for Dwight Eisenhower in his place of honour. Other than that, it’s a nice slice of peace and quiet, relatively so, in a busy area of London, somewhere convenient to take... More

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.
