Jubilee Celebrations in Mayfair

Areas in and around Mayfair have been decorated with patriotic Union Jack bunting, in preparation for the Queen’s upcoming Jubilee celebrations. It is a little known fact that Queen Elizabeth II was born in a house on Bruton Street in Mayfair in 1926, and so it is the perfect place to spend your Jubilee bank holiday.

Street parties are the order of the day for many Jubilee revellers, and many members of the Mayfair community will be hosting their own to commemorate the big day, including Mount Street and Grosvenor Street. There will also be a charity event held on nearby Pimlico Street, auctioning off some British themed finery in aid of the Moorfields Eye Charity.

If you prefer a low-key celebration, pay a visit to one of Mayfair’s exclusive pubs or bars and toast the Queen with your favourite beverage. British tradition Pimms is the ideal choice for a national occasion, but champagne, wine or cocktails would all be elegant (and delicious!) options.

For foodies, the best options are one of the many themed menus on offer in the area’s restaurants. Mews of Mayfair, for instance, have constructed their own Diamond Jubilee menu, featuring appropriate offerings such a Jubilee chicken salad and gammon with traditional pease pudding.

However you choose to spend the weekend, Mayfair is the ideal location and has plenty to offer for anyone wanting to celebrate the Jubilee in style and splendour.
