Living in Mayfair & St James’s:

Mayfair encompasses the area situated between Oxford Street, Regent Street, Piccadilly and Park Lane, in the very heart of London’s West End, and adjacent to St James’s and its glorious Royal parks to the south.

For nearly 300 years local residents have included some the most influential and illustrious people on the planet, from foreign royalty and British prime ministers to celebrities and entertainment icons, and the many embassies play host to a large diplomatic community.

The handsome Georgian architecture and graceful garden squares provide the elegant backdrop to some of London's most fashionable boutiques and exclusive restaurants.

World renowned for the luxury of its leisure amenities, Mayfair is within easy reach of two of London’s most notable department stores, Selfridges and Liberty of London, as well as Saville Row, famous for its tailoring, and New and Old Bond Streets, known for couture & high fashion, fine jewellery & watches, art & antiques. Also located here are Sotheby's, Christies & Phillips, three of Europe’s oldest and most respected auction houses.

Unsurprisingly, Mayfair boasts an impressive concentration of five-star hotels and its restaurants provide diners with some of Europe’s finest gastronomic experiences. World-class art galleries, museums and historic buildings located here include the Handel House Museum and the Royal Academy of Arts, which is set in the beautiful Burlington House on Piccadilly. From their position in the heart of London, Mayfair and St James’s have excellent links to the rest of London and into the City via both road and underground networks.

Destinations further afield across Great Britain are easily accessible, as are Kings Cross St Pancras for the Eurostar and Heathrow Airport, for connections to the rest of the world.

Property available in Mayfair

Known for its elegant period conversions and post-war apartments, lateral space is highly prized in Mayfair. Freehold townhouses and outside space are rare and thus greatly sought after.

Newly renovated properties appeal to both the international and domestic markets, and property recently finished to a high specification commands a premium, particularly if it comes with additional amenities and concierge-style services.

Development opportunities are keenly sought and rarely remain on the market for long.

Whether you have a property to sell or to let, and whether you are looking for an imposing townhouse or an impeccable pied a terre, Knight Frank Mayfair is perfectly placed to take care of your London property needs.


Mayfair is named after an annual 15 day long May Fair that took place on the site that is now Shepherd Market, from 1686 until 1764, when it was banned by the local aristocratic citizens because they felt it was attracting undesirable people from poorer parts of London.

Most of the area was first developed between the mid-17th century and the mid-18th century as a fashionable residential district. The most notable of the numerous landlords responsible for this transformation was the Grosvenor family, who built extensively across the village, and whose name is still attached to many Mayfair landmarks.

The Grosvenor Estate now occupies much of north Mayfair, including Mount Street which over recent years has been dramatically rejuvenated under careful management into one of the city’s most luxurious retail destinations.

Over the centuries, Mayfair and St James’s have been home to many prime ministers including Benjamin Disraeli, Sir Robert Peel, William Pitt the Younger, and Winston Churchill.

During the Second World War, heavy bombing in the City forced a large number of businesses to relocate to Mayfair, taking over residential homes in the process. From the mid 1990’s these buildings started to revert back to residential use, rekindling Mayfair’s status as one of London’s most exclusive addresses.
