Top ways to experience Mayfair
The area
Neighbourhood: 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.
How to get there
  • Green Park • 2 min walk
  • Piccadilly Circus • 9 min walk

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The view was amazing. In the morning it was an awe for the eyesight. Grabbing the phone and snapping the awesome view was the best moment for us. Mayfair simply provide all of your requirements and with very ease and you will never feel out of your home . This is exactly home away from home.

One of a kind part of the City of London, with upscale hotels and restaurants, embassy row, and some of the best real estate in the world.

The London Walks Old Mayfair tour was so worthwhile. Our guide, Peter, knew so much about the history of the area and entertained us not only with Mayfair’s history, but who had lived where and their stories.

A lovely hotel in the centre of Mayfair with very professional and welcoming staff. We were not overly happy with our room as it did not seem to be the one advertised. The staff were great and managed to find us an upgraded room for the second night and moved our luggage for us (buyer beware Booking.com pictures are incorrect). When we moved the hotel left us a lovely card and some truffles, what a lovely thing to do. The buffet breakfast was very good and caters for any taste and the self-service area is kept really clean by the staff in attendance. Overall, I recommend this hotel.

Probably best part of London. Absolutely stunning, especially at this time of the year when all Xmas lights and decorations are up. The place to spend loads of money if you are rich lol as all the top designers are here , very expensive part of the world but if you are ever lucky to win the lottery then this would be my first stop. Stunning location and perfect place to spot the off Ferrari or Lamborghini. Very close to Oxford street for all your shopping needs.

Morning tour of the Mayfair area with Paul Olins from London Greeters which is a terrific (and free) volunteer based service provided typically by residents of city areas. Paul displayed his in depth knowledge of the historic Mayfair district, we left with a far greater understanding of how the area developed, history of the aristocracy and architecture. We were even able to see the London town home where Queen Elizabeth II was born, a poignant moment given Her Majesty passed just a day later. Finished the tour with a coffee at Mayfair Mercato which is a unique food court housed in a former church. Highly recommend the London Greeters service.

One of the most expensive and most prettiest neighbourhood in London. It worth the stroll. It has the most Victorian building per km2 in London. FREE!

Lovely buildings & expensive cars. I suppose it is nice to see how the other half live. Was very well decorated for Christmas. Always nice to take a peek.
