N.B. this walk will not take place on the following dates:
“The champagne and caviar of London Walks.” The best address in London and a bon vivant of a guide. A patrician promenade through the parallelogram of purses. Pip pipping where Old Masters and old money, Rollers and Rolexes are par for the course. A boulevardier and a bailiwick of butlers, titles and glamour. Hob-nobbing with knobs on it – because Mayfair’s been home to Clive of India, Disraeli, Handel, Florence Nightingale, Jimi Hendrix, Dodi Fayed and the Earl Mountbatten, to name but a few. Last but certainly not least, Mayfair boasts London’s best village within a village – Shepherd Market, a charming little nest of lanes and alleyways that hasn’t lost a jot of its 18th-century scale and village atmosphere, let alone its raffishness. Guided by Peter or Richard III or Claire or Oliver.
