Possibly one of the most prestigious and affluent locations in London’s West End, Mayfair is brimming with exclusive hotels, gourmet restaurants and high-class retailers. Named after the 15-day ‘May Fair’ that was a regular feature between 1686 and 1764, this is a truly prime location for businesses looking to settle in the heart of the Capital. Surrounded by Hyde Park, Regent Street, Bond Street, Oxford Street, Savile Row, Piccadilly and Park Lane, Mayfair is fashionable, chic and very, very desirable in terms of living, working and socialising according to Mayfair real estate consultants.
What to expect from Mayfair office space
In Mayfair offices to rent are an eclectic mix of contemporary refurbished interiors often sitting behind magnificent Georgian facades. Businesses may choose from serviced or un-serviced offices, fully fitted and ready to occupy, or a blank canvas ready to make their own.
Manned receptions, personalised call answering and mail handling and admin support, meeting rooms with conferencing facilities, fully fitted kitchens and in some cases shower rooms and shared courtyards are typical features of Mayfair offices to rent, many of which are located within beautiful Grade II listed buildings.
What does Mayfair have to offer?
Mayfair is a highly exclusive district of West London, teeming with retail and entertainment opportunities. From world-class designer fashions on Bond Street and bespoke tailoring on Savile Row to fine dining, jewellery, antiques, art and collectibles, it is easy to see why this is an area so often labelled as elite.
Whether you are working, shopping or simply out to enjoy yourself, there is a huge array of things to do in Mayfair, and some very welcoming green spaces in which to take refuge too.
Grosvenor Square, the second largest square in the whole of London, features six acres of beautiful lawns presenting a haven of peace and tranquillity.
Mount Street Gardens is considered an important nature conservation zone. Punctuated by dawn redwood trees, London planes and Canary Island date palms, it’s a true sanctuary for birds and wildlife.
Brown Hart Gardens, perched atop the roof of the old Duke Street electricity substation, is a raised paved terrace that is something of a hidden secret. Stop by and you may happen upon a special event at some point such as a Wimbledon screening or the Lumiere Light Festival.
Notable places in Mayfair
Some of the most notable places in Mayfair form prime spots for office space. Others are simply wonderful places to spend time.
Upper Grosvenor Street, home to the Embassy of Monaco, is an historical street that runs from the Grosvenor House Hotel off Park Lane to the United State Embassy off Grosvenor Square. For those who admire period architecture, a walk along this street will prove most pleasant.
Cavendish Square and its gardens is a formal square dating back to the 1700s. The gardens are popular amongst sunbathers in the warmer months.
Hanover Square again dates back to the 1700s. Graced by a number of sculptures and statues set amongst shady gardens, the square is a well-liked refuge for workers on their breaks from the surrounding office buildings.
The Royal Academy of Arts in Burlington House on Piccadilly features a world-class exhibition programme with free displays of art and architecture and a variety of talks, courses and events.
Burlington Arcade is a covered shopping arcade filled with charming boutiques selling everything from fine jewellery and gifts to fashion, leather goods and fragrance.
Shepherd Market is a lovely piazza boasting an array of restaurants, traditional Victorian pubs and again a smattering of boutique outlets. It’s a gorgeous little enclave nestled between Curzon Street and Piccadilly right in the heart of Mayfair where the relaxed village atmosphere is a real draw.
