Why Move to Mayfair?
Right in the heart of London, exclusive Mayfair, synonymous with luxury and long been associated with the rich and famous holds an attraction all of its own.
Located in the West End of London towards the eastern edge of Hyde Park, between Oxford Street and Piccadilly, Mayfair has not always held such a posh reputation.
Originally part of the manor of Eia, it remained largely rural until the early 18th century when it became known for its annual May Fair (hence the name). It was a rowdy and an indecent affair which led to the disorderly celebrations being a public scandal.
Nowadays, fancy restaurants, upmarket cocktail bars, expensive designer stores and a whole multitude of historic landmarks have changed Mayfair’s fortunes considerably.
It is unquestionably the most high-class district in the UK, just check on your Monopoly board!
Not everyone can afford to live here but it certainly has plenty of visitors, eager to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy a bit of people watching or window shopping.
Most of Mayfair is overseen and owned by the Grosvenor Estate and has been since the 17th Century.
Strict controls ensure planning and building development is carefully inspected so that the area maintains its village like appeal and overall style and appearance.
Property prices are unsurprisingly uber expensive and people from all over the globe will pay the extortionate prices to own even a little piece of Mayfair.
The district is within walking distance to most key Central London areas such as Soho, Covent Garden and Oxford Street, however, there is also a Tube Station based at each end: Green Park and Bond Street.
Plus, the boundaries of Mayfair encompass Buckingham Palace, St James Palace, Green Park and St James Park.
Though travel connections are of the highest order, there is very little requirement for them as almost everything is right on your doorstep.
Mayfair’s 26 Michelin starred restaurants will make sure you are well fed. Being in the very heart of London’s West End, means you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to entertainment.
Home to upmarket designer boutiques and flagship stores most notably, Selfridges and Liberties, retail opportunities are everywhere.
Mayfair and St James’s are packed with world-class art galleries, museums and historic buildings so you can tick the culture box too.
If by chance you can actually afford to live here, one thing is for sure, your standard of living is going to be off the scale.
Mayfair Schools & Education
Plenty of very prestigious schools dot the district alongside some very good state schools.
In total there are around 42 state primaries, 12 secondaries, 4 special schools and a large number of private and religiously affiliated schools which serve the surrounding area, so the choice for parents is extensive.
All state schools within one mile of Mayfair’s centre are either “good” or “outstanding”.
Among some of the best primaries are St Vincent’s Catholic Primary School, Hampden Gurney CofE Primary School and St Peter’s Eaton Square CofE Primary School all “outstanding”.
Westminster City School and The St Marylebone C of E School both serve the 11–18-year age group and both are also “outstanding” reports Ofsted.
Westminster School is one of the UK’s top independent co-educational schools and is located just to the south of St James’s Park.
Older students have four local colleges well within walking distance, City of Westminster College, Fashion Retail Academy, Harris Westminster Sixth Form and Westminster Kingsway College.
For higher education, Westminster University is based at the northern end of Regent Street, whilst the London School of Economics is based just off the Strand.

Mayfair’s property portfolio is filled with immaculate homes located along spotlessly clean, picturesque streets and well-kept gardens and squares, Berkeley Square and Grosvenor Square are two of the most famous of their kind in the city.
Historically, much of the original area around Mayfair was destroyed during the terrible bombing of WW2.
Lots of businesses at the time re-located out of Mayfair in an effort to escape the worst and plenty of the elegant period homes were abandoned.
Following the end of the war the majority of these beautiful homes were converted into businesses.
Over the years businesses have moved out and homes have reverted back to residential properties which for the most part have been divided into separate apartments, fetching premium prices in the local market.
As you can imagine, Mayfair’s real estate comes with an average price of £2,544,217. Statistics indicate that this is a price increase of more than 200% over the past 20 years.

The most expensive home for sale is one of Mayfair’s original town houses. The impressive 6-bedroom house is arranged over 6 floors in the heart of Mayfair. Close to Park Lane, Berkeley Square, Green Park, Oxford Street, shops, amenities, and facilities of Mayfair. At a cost of £62,500,000 it is safe to say, this home is well out of reach for mere mortals.
