“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.


Old Mayfair takes place every Tuesday  and Thursday at 10.45 am in the Summer and on Thursdays in the Winter

The starting point for the Mayfair walk is Green Park Tube. Meet Peter or Richard III or ClaireorOliver on the corner of Stratton Street outside the north exit of Green Park Tube.

N.B. the Mayfair walk ends in New Bond Street, near Bond Street Tube and  Oxford Circus Tube.


What shall we do after the walk? Got any suggestions?

  1. Martha Foote

    Claire is an excellent guide. I learned a lot on this walking tour, from the origins of Mayfair to the present day. Claire took us to parts of Mayfair that I would not have found on my own.

  2. Ariane Rubbregt

    Fantastische wandeling met super gids Peter 🤩 Vele weetjes van de “rich and famous” van London! Nogmaals een onvergetelijke London Walks ervaring voor ons 👍

  3. Judith Phillips

    This was an excellent walk with Richard III. He is entertaining and very knowledgeable. Also as we are walking around Mayfair which can be very noisy, I appreciated that he used a portable microphone so that we could all hear him whether we were in the first row or the last. Thank you Richard III for this!

  4. Ralph

    Macht Spaß, zuzuhören. Gebildet, humorvoll, hintergründig. Wir hatten Glück, bei unserem vierten Walk wieder bei Richard III. zu landen. Immer gerne wieder Dinge sehen, die wir ohne ihn nicht gesehen hätten.

    A most interesting, informative, and delightfully entertaining walk – through Mayfair – with Richard III! We three American women loved every minute, and recommend highly both the Walk and the Guide.

    Another fantastic walk with London Walks. Peter was at his best in his own indomitable style. As always very knowledgeable and interesting to listen to.

    We thoroughly enjoyed being guided through Mayfair by Richard III. He took us on a knowledgeable and witty tour around those beautiful historic London streets, the two hours going by so quickly. Can’t recommend him highly enough.
