Things to do in Mayfair
There are plenty of ways to while away the time in Mayfair, from the historic arts and culture and luxury shopping, to the natural beauty of its scenic parks, here’s the best of what the area has in store:
Royal Academy of Arts
One of London’s best-known art galleries, the Royal Academy is a historic institution founded in 1768, and home to the work of an array of eminent artists. Alongside its permanent collection, the Academy also holds the largest open-submission exhibition of new art in the world, which has become a well-known annual event in London’s social calendar.
Handel & Hendrix in London
Under one roof, separated by a single wall, are the former residences of two of history’s most influential musical artists. At 25 Brook Street is the 18th century home of George Frideric Handel, where he composed his world-famous baroque music, including Messiah. Fast forward to the 20th century and the top floor of 23 Brook Street is the flat where Jimi Hendrix lived, creating some of the most significant music of his generation. Brook Street is well worth a visit to see these two famous dwellings in one go.
A historic covered shopping arcade, where one can purchase antique jewellery, luxury clothing and delicious macarons, or even have your shoes shined. The Arcade is patrolled by the smallest private police force in existence today, known as the Beadles, who can be seen wearing frock coats and braided top hats. They’re extremely knowledgeable about the area, so ask one for a historical tour of the arcade.
For the ultimate high-end shopping experience, look no further than Bond Street. This major London thoroughfare is known for its many shops offering luxurious apparel and fine consumer goods. A trip to Mayfair wouldn’t be complete without a stroll down this iconic street for a spot of window shopping. From Cartier to Prada, Bond Street has it all.
Covering just over 40 acres, Green Park is not quite as large as its neighbours Hyde Park and St James’s Park. However, this Royal Park is just as picturesque no matter the season. The perfect place for a scenic wander, Green Park’s broad avenues lined with trees will take you all the way from Piccadilly Circus to Buckingham Palace. A green sanctuary from the bustle of London life.
