Must-see attractions in Mayfair

If you want to experience all that the upmarket district of Mayfair has to offer, but don’t have time to take in all of the sites, don’t panic! This guide to the must-see attractions of Mayfair will enable to you to get a sense of this amazing area of the city with just a few key visits.

The Royal Academy of Arts

Cultural Mayfair is home to hundreds of wonderful art galleries and exhibitions, but if you only have the time to see one, make it the Royal Academy of Arts. They offer a range of exhibitions throughout the year with works from classic painters from around the world.


Mayfair is known as an area of luxury, and there’s nothing more luxurious than whiling away the hours with a delicious array of cakes and sandwiches. Afternoon tea is a Mayfair speciality, and Claridges offers one of the best in the area.

Savile Row

You may not be staying long enough to invest in a tailor made suit, but a stroll down Savile Row will certainly familiarise you with the decadent designer stores of the area. If you’re here mainly for the shopping, Bond Street and the Burlington Arcade are both equally valuable destinations.

Piccadilly Circus

Piccadilly Circus isn’t just a must see for Mayfair tourists – anyone who comes to London should see this sight before they leave! A veritable hub of shops, clubs, restaurants and theatres, Piccadilly Circus has everything you need for an entire day out, but it’s worth the visit for the famous illuminated signs alone.
