Mayfair Area Guide

Area overview

Mayfair is the most expensive property on the Monopoly board, and with good reason. Located in the heart of London within the City of Westminster, bordered by Hyde Park to the west, Oxford Street to the north, Piccadilly and Green Park to the south and Regent Street to the east, it’s in a prime position with wealth and success oozing from its every pore.

Mayfair is an exclusive residential area that offers the very best of central London living and rents here are amongst the highest in the world. It is home to some of London’s finest properties, restaurants, bars and clubs, whilst fashionistas flock to world-famous New Bond Street, a shopping mecca offering the very best in designer fashions and exclusive jewellery. Cork Street is famous for the art sold in its world-renowned galleries, whilst Savile Row is synonamous with bespoke tailoring, although today its tailors are under threat from rising rents and tough competition from the more rock and roll fashion houses of Bond Street.

Mayfair is home to London's largest concentration of luxury hotels and it also boasts many exclusive restaurants. Many prominent overseas embassies are based here including the whitewashed and heavily-guarded Saudi Embassy, the Canadian High Commission and the American Embassy, a brute of a building overlooking Grosvenor Square. Around the embassies are quiet and exclusive residential streets and shops selling antiques, furniture and clothing. Mayfair is home to The Royal Academy of Arts, The Handel House Museum, the Grosvenor House Hotel, Claridge's and The Dorchester, whilst some of the UK’s oldest and most respected auction houses, such as Phillips and Sotheby's, are also based here.

Whether you are looking to rent a property in Mayfair, or are hoping to put down more permanent roots and buy a property in Mayfair, the area offers residents a very high quality of life. It is only a short walk to the open spaces of Hyde Park and Green Park and close to London’s West End, with its wide choice of theatres, cinemas and vibrant nightspots. Park Lane in Mayfair remains one of the most desirable residential locations in the UK and it’s often said that if you live in Mayfair, you’ve arrived.
