Visited at George's for a moment of respite, I was feeling a bit under pressure with a lot going on. It was such a beautiful church, so quiet and restful, I lost track of time while contemplating... Lovely just to be able to do that

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
