Short read: “The champagne & caviar of London Walks.” With pubs.

Long read: Does it get any better than that? A place where Old Masters and old money, Rolls Royces and glamour, titles and butlers are par for the course. London’s finest townhouse and nightingales thrumming away in the square. It’s London’s best name-dropping because Mayfair’s been home to Admiral Nelson (and his mistress Lady Emma Hamilton), Clive of India, Disraeli, Handel, Florence Nightingale, Peter Sellers, Jimi Hendrix, Dodi Fayed, and the Earl Mountbatten, to name but a few. And the go figure factor? Try this for size. The parallelogram of purses boasts London’s best village within a village: Shepherd Market, a charming little nest of alleys that hasn’t lost a jot of its 18th-century scale and village atmosphere, let alone its raffishness. N.B. the walk ends near Bond Street Tube.

MAYFAIR PUB WALK – THE PRACTICALS

The Mayfair Pub Walk takes place at 7.15 pm on Saturday, August 1.

The meeting point is on the corner, outside the North exit of Green Park Tube. The walk ends close to Bond Street and Oxford Street Tube stations.

If you can’t make one of the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, public Mountain Building & Meteorites in the City of London walks it can always be booked as a private tour.
