Things To See and Do In Mayfair
Mayfair is one of the most affluent areas of London and gets its’ name from the May Fair which was actually held every two weeks for 100 years until it stopped in 1764. Today, there is plenty to do in Mayfair, including visiting one of the many art galleries and museums in the area which include the well-known Royal Academy of Arts.
The composer Handel lived here and it is where he wrote The Messiah. Jimi Hendrix also lived here with his girlfriend in Berkeley Square and wrote some of his most famous songs. You can visit both their houses.
There is a plethora of swanky restaurants and bars in Mayfair. There is The Bar at The Dorchester, The Bar at the Athenaeum, Claridge’s Bar, Dukes Bar, Hawksmoor, Trader Vic’s, and a whole lot more. Of course, when you visit Mayfair you can hardly do so without taking afternoon tea at the Ritz. For restaurants you might want to try Bentley’s Oyster Bar and Grill, Corrigan’s, Le Gavroche, Kitty Fisher’s, Veeraswamy, or of course Scott’s.
When you are visiting London you might want to stay in one of the top class hotels, but many people today prefer one of the luxury London apartments such as those in Carlton Court. Our apartments are furnished regardless of cost and many people prefer them because they are far larger than a hotel room and you get all the privacy of having your own “home” rather than living with three or four hundred other people. They are also a lot less expensive than any of the London hotels.
You have 24 hour concierge and security service at Carlton Court, and you have a choice of apartments from a one bed penthouse suite for two people to a three bed flat which sleeps as many as six. High speed broadband is supplied, along with TV’s in every room showing programmes in many different languages. There is also a seven day maid service for housekeeping. You are even supplied with the Carlton Court breakfast hamper every morning, in order to get your day off to a flying start – and it’s all included in your bill.
