Mayfair is a beautiful part of London and situated right in the heart of the city near to Piccadilly, the famous Hyde Park and the upper class Regent Street. The place Mayfair is originally named after a fair which took place in the area throughout the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
During this time, Mayfair also became an extremely popular area in terms of property and was a major residential hub for the rich and the ‘important.’ We all remember Mayfair from our Monopoly boards and the game truly reflects real life here in terms of the stature and value of the property.
