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

This small quiet and modest square close to Oxford Street is where Londoners in the past who were anyone would reside. Nowadays it houses the American Embassy plus a few other heads of states offices. Worthwhile to walk through to get a sense of history

My boyfriend and I stumbled across a summer festival today. It is completely free with live music , free giant games for the kids and young at heart. It's a great way to chill out from the hussel and bussel of the city life. My only negative is we only found it on our last day.

Located just a few blocks to the east of Hyde Park and within comfortable walking distance from the busy shopping strips of Oxford Street and Bond Street, Grosvenor Square was a nice little park to relax for a while. There is an North American influence on the square, with the current US and Canadian Embassies sitting opposite each other on... 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.
