If you are visiting London in search of the most respected antique dealers in the capital, look no further than the following Mayfair antique stores, situated just a stone’s throw from Bond Street’s greatly renovated train station.

Grays Antique Centre

For those seeking the biggest selection of antique dealers under one roof, look no further than Mayfair’s Grays Antique Centre. Also known as Grays Antique Market, it has become a hub for around 100 specialist antique dealers on two storeys. The grade-two listed building can be found on Davies Street, oozing Edwardian charm. It was initially built as a water closet showroom but has since been lovingly restored to act as a leading Mayfair hub for fine art and antiques.

The centre contains a so-called “labyrinth” of corridors that lead to individual rooms housing dealers selling all manner of objects, ranging from 20th-century war collectables to ancient artefacts dating back as far as 40BC. Those who enjoy vintage fashion can also avail themselves of plenty of vintage clothing and costume jewellery dating back to the Victorian era. Better still, Grays Antique Centre is open six days a week from 10 am – 6 pm on Monday to Friday and 11 am – 5 pm on Saturdays, although some dealers are only present Monday to Friday.

Sinai & Sons

Sinai & Sons is an antique dealer located on South Audley Street, just around the corner from The Dorchester. The store is owned and operated by brothers, Raphael and Joshua Sinai. Both of whom have an almost encyclopaedic knowledge and passion for European, Asian, and American fine art and design from the 19th and 20th century.

Raphael and Joshua had both spent some time living in New York when they opted to return to central London to launch a new antique gallery in 2005. Raphael’s expertise working at Christie’s auctioneers and Joshua’s experience working as a private dealer in New York have both stood them in very good stead, enabling them to offer an eclectic range of decorative arts, with an emphasis on the unique.

Ronald Phillips

If it’s quintessentially English antique furniture that you’re after, make sure you pay a visit to Ronald Phillips. Situated on Bruton Street, almost parallel to Mayfair’s prestigious Hakkasan restaurant, Ronald Phillips is world-renowned for its selection of rosewood, walnut, and mahogany furniture, spanning a host of styles including Regency, Neo-Classicism, and Rococo. The family-run business originated on Old Brompton Road, before moving to Mayfair in 1976. Since the late 1990s, Ronald’s son, Simon, has been handling the day-to-day running of the store.

Ronald Phillips is an antique store that’s had experience handling precious pieces from English artisans dating back as far as the 1700s, including works from Thomas Chippendale, Matthew Boulton, and Thomas Sheraton. Restorations are also offered in-store to help conserve the quality and natural beauty of English antique furniture owned by customers across London and beyond.

Of course, Mayfair is not only an area that’s synonymous with the finest quality antiques and artworks in the capital. It’s an area that’s also teeming with exclusive high-end casinos. Many people flock to Mayfair’s casino scene for a taste of its private gaming clubs, some of which are membership-only and enforce strict dress codes. However, it’s this attention to detail and sophistication that allows these venues to thrive despite the rise of online casinos and their 24/7 accessibility.
